Samsung refreshes Galaxy S II with LTE and HD display after moving 10 million units

Galaxy S II LTE HD

Over the weekend Samsung boasted that their Galaxy S II handset had sold over 10 million units. Today the Korean company revealed newer models with LTE support and HD Super AMOLED displays.

The Galaxy S II LTE and Galaxy S II HD LTE were both announced for the Korean market, but there’s a strong chance we might see something similar in the US.

For the hardcore Android fans, the main attraction here is the 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display with HD (1280X720) resolution. This display is the “first AMOLED display to feature 316 pixels per inch (ppi), higher than the standard 300ppi, resulting in substantial improvements in screen sharpness and readability.”

Both new devices also sport an unspecified dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, slightly faster than the 1.2 GHz Exynos being used in most Galaxy S II models. Some upcoming Samsung phones have been rumored to use the dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S3, but there’s also the chance Samsung overclocked their Exynos to match those speeds.

A constant stream of rumors has suggested that the Nexus Prime would also feature a 4.65-inch HD display and dual-core 1.5 GHz processor. This latest press release is a good sign that will come true. Verizon customers might also see a similar device marketed under the Droid branding, so we’ll keep following Samsung to see what they announce next.

We won’t have to wait too much longer, though. Samsung has already scheduled another Unpacked event at CTIA on October 11. Which devices do you think Samsung will announce?
