3 years ago 19

US Android fans may not be very pleased with the fact that it has taken so long for the Samsung Galaxy S II to get here. This device has been popping up all over the world–our friends in neighboring countries have it already–but the US is still not getting any love! zthis long-awaited bad boy is supposed to be showing up sometime this month. And today we have a bit more information on one of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II devices.

Korean site IT Tong has leaked information about this variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II, which could possibly be headed to Verizon. If you’ve been worrying about this device lacking 4G radios, this could be a great spark of hope. The only major US carrier with heavy investment in an LTE network, as of now, is Verizon. AT&T might be launching their LTE network soon, but odds are that AT&T’s Galaxy S II variant will only have HSPA+ connectivity.

The device shows some impressive specs and is actually a bit better than the known SGSII. This device has a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 16 GB of internal storage, an 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera. Some other already-known specs are listed below:

The only thing that doesn’t match up correctly is the fact that this device actually has an 800 MHz LTE radio, whereas Verizon uses 700 MHz frequencies. It shouldn’t be too hard to switch those though, right?

Let’s hope this variant of the Galaxy S II does make it to the states soon, because it’s looking pretty sweet! What do you guys say? Is this Verizon’s variant of the Galaxy S II? If so, will the Galaxy S II be your next Android device?
