The Korean giant is getting ready to unveil the two new LTE-enabled devices at IFA in Berlin this week. Both devices are sporting an updated dual-core processor running at 1.5GHz, while the Galaxy S II is also getting a size bump and moving up to a 4.5-inch screen, a fairly generous 1,850mAh battery, NFC, an 8-megapixel camera, and multi-mode LTE capable of working at multiple frequencies around the world.
Next, The Tab remains otherwise unchanged, featuring a 1280 x 800 panel, Android 3.2, and a 3-megapixel camera. The LTE edition of the GALAXY Tab 8.9 is incredibly portable, measuring just 8.6mm thin while weighing only 455g. The boosted connectivity and genuine portability ensures that the GALAXY Tab 8.9 LTE is the ideal device for modern professionals.
Samsung’s press release mentions that it’ll reveal “plans to launch” on the 29th; conveniently, there’s a Samsung event in New York City today, so it’d seem likely that we’ll see this one tied in with either Verizon or AT&T. Both have been rumored in recent weeks.
Granted that these two devices aren’t exactly new, but what makes them interesting is that officially neither of the devices are currently available, and here’s the kicker, the versions that Samsung plans to unveil at IFA could very well be the 4G LTE versions.
So stay tuned — the 4G race is about to heat up.
