As we move away from the summer and further into September, Samsung Mobile looks set to take over the tech websites of the world, by announcing multiple new Smartphones for the upcoming months. Hot on the heels of the long-awaited unveiling of the US Samsung Galaxy S2, the Korean giant is now expected to introduce a new Galaxy S2 with LTE capability, signaling a response to rival devices set to use the technology on Verizon and AT&T.
According to recent reports, Verizon Wireless turned down the opportunity to offer the Samsung Galaxy S2 because their long term strategy is to focus on LTE growth, fuelling rumors that a device by the name of the Droid Prime will be launching exclusively on Verizon as a more competitive alternative to the S2.
This LTE compatible S2 would not just be theoretically faster when it comes to data transfer speeds, but also bumped up in other departments by way of a bigger screen and a 1.5GHZ dual core processor.
The Sprint Nextel variant of the S2, namely the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch, is the most similar to the Droid Prime in that it already boasts the increased 2.52 inch screen size. Instead of LTE however, Sprint offer the S2 on their Wi-Max network, which is seen as their biggest asset of all.
S2 or no S2, Verizon is clearly ready to compete with the big dogs next month, offering the Motorola Droid Bionic as of next month. This will be the very first phone from the carrier to offer dual core LTE Android power and is already seen huge promotional and media attention.
