Is the Samsung Celox an LTE enabled version of the Galaxy S II?
Is this the LTE enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy S II?
Right now, it is all conjecture, but where there is smoke there is fire and Samsung might have one burning hot handset with the Samsung Celox. Until we get word that there will be a unit with a 4G radio that carries Verizon's frequencies, all U.S. cell phone fans can do is stare at the picture and hope that a version of the phone will make it to the States.

LTE is one thing but is it CDMA as well? it's no use on Verizon even with LTE if it doesn't have CDMA.

The carrier that this device is GOING TO has CDMA and LTE... So its possible that this might be verizon's galaxy s2

does the carrier have CDMA? i don't know but i was skeptical because it's rare to hear about CDMA overseas...

South Korea was primarily CDMA ever since the late 90s. But they migrated to UMTS/HSPA/3G (under 2100 MHz) because they got tired of getting screwed over by Qualcomm's royalty fees. They still have their CDMA (2G) network in operation.
They might just configure the LTE radio to support Verizon's LTE network, who knows.

South Korea has three major carriers and one of them are CDMA/EvDo based just like Verizon. Other two are UMTS/HSPA+ like AT&T though.

@ Thump3rDX17 yeah your right but this just gives hope to all (including me) Verizon customers who have wanted a LTE enabled Galaxy S II device. Some worried that it couldn't be done do to the LTE first gen. chips being to big for the very slim Galaxy S II devices. Lets just hope and cross our fingers for a CDMA/LTE 700 MHz version by September which is the rumored launched date.

if it does it better have Exynos. i believe this thing has some Qualcomm processor. they may not be able to get Exynos & LTE to play nicely. if the Galaxy S II doesn't have Exynos it's going to disappoint a lot of people. i'd rather it be 3G w/ Exynos than 4G w/ Qualcomm.

I think I see what's happening. Samsung is is trying to lure the US buyers of the SGS2 variants in by offering a larger 4.5 in screen to overcome the fact that probably none of them will have the Exynos processor.

I don't see how they can call this a Samsung GS II variant as this has none of the original specs...processor....screen size...nothing. As far as I'm concerned this is a new Samsung phone. Hope it's better than the GS2 though!
