It looks like Sammy has some big news for us in the coming weeks -- we already know we're going to hear about the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Galaxy Note at the IFA conference beginning September 1st, but now we're hearing rumors that Sammy will also unveil LTE versions of the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Tab 8.9, both rocking upgraded specs from their non-LTE counterparts.
The LTE Galaxy S II is said to have a larger, 4.5-inch display along with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (no word on whether it's an Exynos, but we assume that it is) along with the first ever LTE/WCDMA/GSM multi-band radio. An 8MP rear shooter, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 1850mAh battery round out the rest of the specs for this monster device.
It's also rumored that Sammy could announce an LTE version of the Galaxy Tab 8.9 as early as next week at its event in NYC, where the US Galaxy S II will finally be unveiled. Like the LTE S II, the LTE Tab 8.9 is also getting a little work done under the hood, as it should be coming equipped with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, but we're not sure who the chip maker is at this point. The other specs for the Tab 8.9 are the same as the non-LTE variant: 1280x800 display, 3MP rear shooter, and Android 3.2.
So, despite the fact we won't be hearing about a Verizon branded GSII, there is still quite a bit of good news coming from Sammy's camp in the coming weeks.
