Samsung Electronics launched its first smartphones based on fourth-generation (4G) communication technology. Galaxy S2 LTE and Galaxy S2 HD LTE compatible with long-term evolution (LTE) technology were rolled out at a media event held in central Seoul.
These two new smartphones support LTE with data transmission five times faster than the existing third-generation (3G) mobile phones, featuring functions offered by Galaxy S2 smartphones.
Galaxy S2 LTE is equipped with an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), or the latest version of the Android platform, a 4.5-inch wide Super AMOLED display and a 1.5 gigahertz dual core processor, while the Galaxy S2 HD LTE is featuring a 4.65-inch high-definition (HD) AMOLED display with 110 per cent natural colour reproduction and 180-degree viewing angle.
Global sales of the Galaxy S2 smartphones reached more than 10 million units since its debut in April, according Samsung.
