According to recent reports, Verizon will not be launching the Samsung Galaxy S II here in the US market. While that news is certainly disappointing, it looks like Verizon may have chosen to skip the SGSII for something even better. New details indicate that Verizon and Samsung are prepping an LTE variant of the Galaxy S II with a larger 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth, a single LTE/WCDMA/GSM multi-band radio, 8MP camera with flash and a generous 1850 mAh battery to keep the phone running for more than just a few hours.
If you’ve been waiting for the Galaxy Tab 8.9, we have some good news for you, too. A second rumor indicates that Samsung is also working on an LTE version of the Galaxy Tab 8.9 that also features a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. All other specs for the LTE Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 are expected to be the same as the WiFi-only version of the Honeycomb tablet.
For now, we don’t know if the processors powering the LTE Samsung Galaxy S II and the LTE Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be Exynos or Tegra 2 chips. But we should know soon enough; both devices are expected to make their debuts next week at IFA or Samsung’s press event in New York.
It’s no secret that Samsung’s prepping some incredible devices for this Fall. Are any of you disappointed that these two devices could be exclusive to Verizon’s LTE network?
