It looks like the LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy SII, codenamed Celox, has popped up for a snapshot or two. Unfortunately, we can’t get too excited about this just yet, as the phone is on one of Korea’s network. It may give us a pretty good idea of what is coming to Verizon within the next month though. We’ve also got some nice rumored specs to stack up next to this anticipated phone: a 4.5″ SAMOLED display, 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, and of course LTE.
We’re guessing you noticed a couple things in the spec list. First up would have to be Snapdragon. It looks like this version does not boast the powerhouse Exynos processor that has made the SII so fast and popular. Also to note is that there isn’t any sign whether that Snapdragon chip is a single-core dud or a dual-core beast. I think we can let things slide if it turns out to be dual-core, but a single core processor these days are just unacceptable for top-tier Android phones. Basically this would turn out to be a slightly upgraded version of the DROID Charge instead of a beastly Galaxy SII.
We can only cross our fingers until Samsung decides to finally announce the devices, which is expected on August 29th.
