Officially announced back in August, but released in South Korea only at the end of last month (on October 27), the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE has become the country’s best-selling 4G LTE handset.
According to Yonhap News, more than 300,000 units of the S II LTE have been sold in Korea since launch.
Meanwhile, LG has sold over 200,000 Optimus LTE smartphones, while Pantech has shipped 150,000 units of its LTE handsets. It’s estimated that about 600,000 4G LTE phones have been bought in South Korea until now.
The Samsung Galaxy S II LTE is also available in Canada, in the US (where AT&T is selling it under the name of Galaxy S II Skyrocket), and in Japan (where NTT DoCoMo has started selling it today). The smartphone is essentially an upgraded Galaxy S II, coming with a 4.5 inch display, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
