Japan snags a version of the Samsung Galaxy S II with that all too rare support for WiMAX
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.
