Samsung to Launch 4G LTE Smartphone and Tablet
Samsung announced 4G versions of its upcoming Galaxy S II Android smartphone and Galaxy Tab 8.9 Android tablet, which will both use LTE network technology for faster data connections.
Both devices aren't necessarily new; they are simply 4G LTE versions of products the company has previously announced.
"With the introduction of GALAXY S II LTE and GALAXY Tab 8.9 LTE, we will take the capabilities of these devices to a whole new level. LTE redefines the user experience made possible by these devices and opens entirely new possibilities in terms of content viewing, sharing, quality and connectivity," JK Shin, president of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business, said in a statement
The Galaxy S II LTE will have a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE will include a 1.5GHz processor as well, which is an upgrade from the original specs the company announced earlier this year.
The LTE compatibility makes both devices candidates for Verizon and AT&T networks, but so far Samsung hasn't revealed details about which networks will carry the devices or when they will be available. Samsung is expected to release more details at the IFA tech conference in Berlin next week.
