The Galaxy S II is Samsung’s fastest selling smartphone ever, so it makes perfect sense for the company to manufacture various versions of it. The latest rumored version has appeared somewhere in Korea, and is currently codenamed Samsung Celox.
According to IT TONG, the Samsung Celox looks like in the photos below, and has an LTE chip inside capable of providing transfer speeds of up to 100Mbps. Now, before saying “hey, this would be perfect for Verizon‘s or AT&T’s LTE networks”, allow us to inform you that the handset does not feature 700 MHz LTE connectivity (used by Verizon and AT&T). Instead it comes with 800 / 1800 / 2600 MHz LTE, thus it should work on LTE networks in Europe, Asia or Australia.
The Celox should also feature a 4.5 inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 processor that may be clocked at 1.5GHz, Android Gingerbread, and an 8MP camera with LED flash.
There’s no word on when this new Galaxy S II will be officially announced – if ever. But we’ll keep an eye on it, and report back as soon as new details are uncovered.
