Samsung has recently announced 2 new wonderphones for the South Korean market–the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE and the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE–just days before the original Samsung Galaxy S II had a chance to debut on the AT&T network.
Although the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE is exactly what it sounds like (i.e., an LTE version of the Galaxy S II), its HD partner is a different story.
Packing 4G LTE and a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen at 1280×720 resolution, the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE is going to be the “phone of phones.” Remember Apple’s Retina display? The 720p HD display on the Galaxy S II HD LTE will be blowing that completely out of the water.
As has already been mentioned, the two new Galaxy S II phones will be similar in some ways to their original predecessor. But, in case you haven’t read about the Galaxy S II HD LTE yet, here are some of its basic specs:
Currently, this device is headed to Korea. Although we may not be getting our hands on this particular device, we are certain that Samsung has something in store for us. But, what does that hold for us? For one–720p HD Super AMOLED screens.
Before we delve into details, let’s take a look at a comparison of some displays:
Finally, the cons of this beautiful display. Tested.com reports that Samsung has not fully moved away from PenTile displays like Motorola has. Although this type of screen makes for blurriness, it is easier to produce and the incredible 319 ppi display will definitely hide these blemishes. In addition, this monster display has a slightly tweaked aspect ratio (16:9). This becomes a problem when the dominant aspect ratio becomes 16:10, and developers have been creating with that in mind.
When rumors started to surface about the Nexus Prime, most people could not believe its rumored screen resolution. Now that the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE has come about, we could hardly imagine that the same 1280×720 display wouldn’t be used on the Nexus Prime.
720p HD resolution on the Nexus Prime’s HD Super AMOLED screen–doesn’t the thought of it make your mouth water?
