Throughout the globe, there’s no arguing there are plenty of GSM flavored versions of the smartphone floating around, but WiMAX connected ones are pretty much a rarity at this point. Interestingly enough, Japan is being graced with a WiMAX version of the handset – though, it actually shares more in common with the Galaxy S II HD LTE more than anything.
Samsung Galaxy S II WiMAX (ISW11SC) is going to be made available through KDDI au in Japan and features a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 4.7” Super AMOLED HD Display (1280 x 720), 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, 2-megapixel front-facing snapper, full 1080p HD video recording, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC support, microSD card slot, and 16GB of internal storage.
Should Sprint or any other current Samsung Galaxy S II customers be jealous? Well, we hope not considering that it’s still rocking out to the tune of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Nevertheless, it’s still deemed as a nice attraction for those KDDI customers looking to snatch something so awe-inspiring.
