The GALAXY S II LTE is Samsung Electronics' first LTE smartphone launched in Korean market.

The portability has been enhanced with a slim design (9.5mm), while offering powerful smartphone performance, including Android 2.3, the latest version of the Android platform, 4.5-inch WVGA (800?480) SuperAMOLED Plus, and 1.5GHz dual core AP.

The GALAXY S II LTE supports LTE with transmission five times faster than 3G.

Multimedia functions have also been improved including the 8 megapixel camera, 1080p-level full HD video, and TV-OUT function based on the MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) adapter.

The phone also includes embedded 16GB memory, large battery capacity of 1850mAh, NFC (Near Field Communication), WiFi a/b/g/n support, and Bluetooth 3.0 HS.

Samsung Electronics declared the launch of the Mobile HD era by unveiling the world's first LTE smartphone with the HD Super AMOLED GALAXY S II HD LTE.

With HD (1280X720) resolution, the HD Super AMOLED is the first AMOLED display to feature 316 pixels per inch (ppi), higher than the standard 300ppi, resulting in substantial improvements in screen sharpness and readability.

The GALAXY S II HD LTE will serve as an 'HD theater in hand' by offering an optimal environment for watching films, including the large 4.65-inch screen, screen ratio of 16:9, 110 natural color reproduction, and 180-degree viewing angle.

The phone supports multiple modes including LTE, HSPA (for SKT and KT) and Rev.A (for LGU), and WCDMA/GSM (roaming), enabling a domestic user to access the fastest high speed wireless Internet.

The narrow bezel technology was employed for the front to make the frame of the 4.65-inch AMOLED display as thin as possible. Emphasis was thus placed on a slim, refined design. The slim feature (9.5mm) ensures a more comfortable grip.

Other smartphone functions are provided, including a large battery capacity of 1850mAh, NFC (Near Field Communication), flash support, 8 megapixel camera, WiFi a/b/g/n support, and Bluetooth 3.0 HS.

Samsung Omnia W

In related news, Samsung unveiled its latest member of the "Omnia" Family, the Omnia W.

The phone features Qualcomm 1.4 GHz CPU. The screen has shrunk, to 3.7-inches, though it does pack a respectable 800x480 resolution. The phone's memory is also a bit low at 512 MB. The phone packs a 5 MP camera and adds the microSD slot the Omnia 7 lacked.

One interesting feature should be the addition of near field communications.

The Omnia W will be commercially available starting in Italy from end-October and gradually rolled to globally including Europe, CIS, Latin America, Africa, South East and South West Asia.

Samsung also today announced that the Samsung GALAXY S II (Model: GT-I9100) has achieved 10 million global channel sales, doubling from five million in just eight weeks.
