Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE for AT&T meets FCC
Back at CES in Las Vegas, Samsung introduced the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE and said it would launch at the end of the current quarter. That scenario could be right as the device has just received the necessary thumbs up from the FCC The unit with the unwieldy name is expected to join AT&T's lineup as the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD

The Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE

Last month, we ran the device through some benchmark tests and it lived up to its name. With a Quadrant Benchmark score ranging from 3,300 to a whopping 3,777, you could tell that the phone was a Galaxy S II variant just on the strength of those results. The FCC paperwork shows the unit running on AT&T’s LTE 700 / 1700 bands. The filing also reveals that Samsung has designed two different battery covers for the phone, one with an NFC antenna embedded in it, and one without the antenna. Even if AT&T goes with the latter cover, the NFC antenna could be part of the battery like on the original Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

The Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE will have a dual-core 1.5GHz processor under the hood with 1GB of RAM onboard. Did we mention the 4.65 inch Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution and a 316ppi pixel density? Well, we did now. The 8MP camera on back captures video at 1080p (30fps) and there is a 2MP front-facing shooter that takes self-portraits and helps you video chat.

Samsung is doing exactly what HTC did by continually rehashing the same phone over and over. I had the sgs2, skyrocket, and now the note and I'm gonna return it. Now this is coming out. Same phone, different size and minor spec changes.

It's a nice phone but you know soon as you get it the Samsung Galaxy III HD will be coming out like two months later... So it best to pace yourself too see what you really want.

I'm afraid even if the GS III becomes available in 2 months, it might take a while before the stateside carriers actually get it. However, I'm still deciding between the skyrocket HD or the one XL in terms of having removable battery & microSD expandable vs. faster processor and better camera. I kinda opting for the one XL since it will already have the ICS.

I would hate to have this phone and somebody asks me what kind of phone I have. It would be tiresome to say, "I have the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD." LOL

Or just make it short GSII Skyrocket HD. hehe. Long names doesn't matter to me as long it's a good phone.

So it's the same as the og Skyrocket except the screen is an inch and a half bigger and slightly better resolution? And why doesn't it have ICS??!!! I can't stand that manufacturers are putting out newer versions of phones every 2 months. It makes the early adopters feel ripped off and now you want to keep waiting to see when the upgraded version will come out.
