Samsung confirms your secret wish - to out an LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy S II next week
Sammy Hub has gotten its hands on some insider info that the rumored LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy S II will be indeed showcased next week at the IFA 2011 Expo in Berlin.

It will come with similar design to its acclaimed original, but is touted to have the world’s first LTE/WCDMA/GSM radio combined commercially in a phone.

Other spec bumps include a 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and the usual swath of NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 8MP camera with flash and a 1850mAh battery. This handset seems destined for AT&T at some point - LTE with a fallback on HSPA+ sounds pretty enticing.

Leaked news about it, though, codenamed as Samsung Celox, had its radio at 800MHz frequencies, not the 700MHz AT&T is occupying with its LTE, so it's probably going to Europe first, that's why it gets flaunted at IFA. We are most curious about what chipset Samsung is using here - Qualcomm is supplying the radios for Verizon's LTE handsets, and it does have a 1.5GHz dual-core chipset, but Samsung might have taken a different approach with its own Exynos silicon, like Motorola did with the DROID BIONIC and TI's OMAP chipset.
