Samsung Galaxy S II i9100 hits 10 million sales. Galaxy S II HD LTE unveiled in Korea
The same day it announced the Omnia W (its first Windows Phone Mango handset), Samsung also made important Android-related announcements.
First of all, the company unveiled that the Galaxy S II i9100 achieved 10 million sales worldwide since its launch (late April this year).
Secondly, Samsung has presented the Galaxy S II HD LTE (pictured below), a bigger version of the Galaxy S II LTE announced about a month ago in Europe. As its name suggests, the new Galaxy S II HD LTE has an HD display, meaning it sports a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels – just like the Galaxy Note, the difference being that the Galaxy S II HD LTE’s display measures 4.65 inches, not 5.3 inches.
Apart from the larger display and a redesigned case, the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE is similar to the Galaxy S II LTE, featuring Android Gingerbread, LTE connectivity, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 1.5GHz single-core processor, and 16GB of internal memory.
The Galaxy S II HD LTE will be launched in South Korea sometime soon, for an unknown price. Sadly, Samsung didn’t say anything about a possible release outside Korea – however, it would make a lot of sense for the company to bring this new high-end Gingerbread handset to other markets, too.
