Several of Samsung’s most popular devices are set to pick up their speed, literally. Samsung announced on Sunday that the Galaxy S II LTE and Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE devices will debut at IFA.
According to JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business:
“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.”
When connected to 4G networks the devices will be able to theoretically achieve high-quality file speeds up to 100Mbps and uploads up to 50Mbps, making the devices five times faster than currently available Samsung HSPA+ devices.
Along with 4G speeds the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE also features a 1.5GHz dual core processor that offers speedy load times for the devices 4.5″ Super AMOLED display, along with HD video and crisp image taking from the devices 8MP camera. The device also runs on the Google Android 2.3 operating system while providing WiFi connectivity for up to eight devices.
The Galaxy Tab 8.9 on the other hand is just 8.6mm thick with a TouchWiz interface, Super AMOLED display and plenty of connectivity including bluetooth and WiFi.
Do you plan on upgrading your current Samsung device to the new LTE option? I have a feeling Samsung may be able to sway some iPhone 4 users over to their devices thanks to the far superior 4G technology they are now offering.
