Samsung Galaxy S II LTE phone surfaces in Korea, codenamed Celox?
There’s a new Samsung Galaxy S II rumor circulating the web today — this time, it’s emanating from South Korea, where specs and images of an LTE smartphone, reportedly codenamed “Celox,” have just surfaced. According to its listing, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 processor, sports a 4.5-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display, and boasts 16GB of internal memory, with a microSD slot offering an extra 32GB. The phone also runs on Gingerbread, rocks a 1750mAh battery (compared to the smaller Galaxy S II’s 1650mAH cell), offers 800MHz LTE support (at up to 50Mbps upstream, 100Mbps downstream) and features an 8MP rear-facing camera, along with a 2MP sensor up front. It all seems pretty similar to that Hercules handset we recently spotted, except for its noticeably different home button, protruding back, and LED flash. No word yet on if or when the handset will hit the market, but considering that both Verizon and AT&T support 700MHz LTE, this particular model may be destined for Europe’s 800MHz networks, rather than the US. We’ll be sure to bring you all the details as soon as they pour in.
