Samsung Galaxy S II LTE One of Rogers Flagship Devices for LTE Rollout in Canada

August 31, 2011

Rogers Communications confirmed via press release that the Canadian mobile carrier will be offering the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE, previously codenamed the Samsung Celox, among other LTE-enabled devices this fall.

With the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE, Canadians can now enjoy the blazing speed of LTE (Long-Term Evolution) technology.  LTE is the next generation mobile technology that delivers mobile broadband experience similar to that of home and office broadband. LTE can potentially reach peak download speeds of up to 150 Mbps and upload speeds at 70 Mbps.

Rogers recently announced that it will be bringing the fastest network technology to Toronto on September 28.  Rogers previously introduced LTE to Canadians in its Ottawa launch last July.

Rogers subscribers will be the first to fully utilize this next-generation network when Rogers rolls out its LTE product line this fall–one of which is the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE.


The Samsung Galaxy S II LTE comes with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, a 1.2-GHz dual-core processor, a gargantuan 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display (compared to the original Galaxy S II which only has a 4.3-inch screen), a display resolution of 800×480, an 8-megapixel camera for HD photos and videos, a 1.3-megapixel secondary front camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of inbuilt storage.

Although Rogers has not announced any specific date for the availability of the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE, the device can be preordered through Rogers’ online reservation system.
