Samsung makes the Galaxy S II even better – announces Galaxy S II LTE and Galaxy S II HD LTE

Today is a big day in South Korea. Samsung decided to announce two more variants of the popular Galaxy S II line of phones in their home market. The first is the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE. This phone was announced back at IFA 2011 in Berlin and now we know that it’s heading to South Korea’s SK Telecom.

The second device is what’s very interesting here. A long with the Galaxy S II LTE, Samsung also announced the Galaxy S II HD LTE. Yes, you read that right, HD, and in High Definition. The Galaxy S II HD LTE is the first Galaxy phone to have an HD display. It features a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display with a 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. Besides the bigger screen, the specs of the SGSII HD LTE are the same as the LTE version and include:

  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 8-megapixel camera with 1080P video support
  • 16GB of internal storage
  • NFC

There’s no word on pricing or availability at the moment. What we do know is that the Galaxy S II LTE will be available exclusively on SK Telecom. The Galaxy S II HD LTE will be available on all three Korean carriers: SK Telecom, LG U+, and KT.

You know what this means? More sales for Samsung! They have already sold over 3.5 million Galaxy S II handsets in South Korea alone. Worldwide, that number is at 10 million. It looks like those number are about to explode, again!
