Samsung Confirms LTE Based Tablet & Smartphone

Seems like Samsung is getting really serious about its LTE and LTE enabled product line. The Korea based electronics giant has announced two new products in the LTE family line-up, the LTE Galaxy Tab 8.9 and the LTE Galaxy S II.

Surprisingly enough, the company has announced the products well ahead of their earlier-proposed revelation at the IFA conference scheduled to be help later this week. Also, Samsung, for sure, poured in some extra effort in order ensure that the newly disclosed products are not too much similar with their non-LTE siblings.

Thanks to the inclusion of a handful of changes in terms of specs and features, the Galaxy maker very much succeeded in defining a quite thick line between the LTE and non LTE variants.

Both the LTE devices have been upgraded to a powerful 1.5 GHz chips. Not just that, the LTE Galaxy S II is also going to feature a 4.5 inch super AMOLED Plus display.

However, the company has refrained so far from disclosing anything regarding the prices of both the devices, as well their availability. But word on the streets is that Verizon is almost sure of bagging the LTE enabled Galaxy S II.

If there is no LTE coverage in a particular area, then the smartphone and the tablet can fall back on slower 3G or 2G data networks.
