The S II LTE is a slightly upgraded model of the European version of the Galaxy S II, with a faster 1.5GHz dual-core Exynos processor. The handset also has a bigger 4.5-inch screen with WVGA (480×800) resolution. Compared to the original S II, the S II LTE has gained some thickness (8.49mm vs. 9.5mm) along with LTE connectivity.

The handset also sports the usual Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS with A-GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, FM Radio, MHL port, NFC, Bluetooth 3.0+HS, and a bunch of sensors to go along with it. There is also 16GB of on-board storage, along with a microSD card slot. At the back of this LTE capable handset is an 8MP camera with an LED flash, with a 2MP camera in the front.

The handset runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with TouchWIZ 4.0 UI on top of it. A beefy 1850mAh battery powers the handset. The Galaxy S II LTE will be available in Korea under the SK Telecom network. The press release from Sammy does not mention anything about the release date of the handset though.
