Samsung Celox, an LTE-toting Galaxy phone, captured on camera

Don't hyperventilate just yet, as this one is clearly branded for SK Telecom (Korea), but it just might give us an idea of what a Verizon (or AT&T) version could look like.  The rumored specs sound delicious -- 4.5 inch Super AMOLED plus screen, 1.5GHz Snapdragon, front and rear cameras, 1GB of RAM and LTE. 

Yes, Snapdragon.  Would seeing a Snapdragon CPU sour you on the LTE enabled Galaxy S II?  Or would the screen and network speed be enough to keep you interested?  Of course, none of this is set in stone, and officially there is no LTE next-generation Samsung phone in the works.  We'll have to see how it all plays out.

  • Samsung, no thx
  • I want exynos... that is what a sgs2 is.
  • I wont be buying a single core phone, I dont care what the other specs are. If the Galaxy S2 for verizon is single core I will either be buying a different phone or switching carriers. Maybe both. Not crazy about 4.5 inch screens either. 4.3 is already a bit big IMO. I want a phone, not a tablet. I dont know why people have such a boner for these bigger screens. Why not just buy a damn tablet?
  • They didnt specify in the article but it is a dual core snapdragon....In saying that tho I will not buy any phone with a snapdragon processor using a8 tech in it when the newer proccessors are a9..just my opinion tho
  • It's not A8 or A9. It's Scorpion architecture. There's no such thing as a dual-core A8 CPU.
  • I don't know why people like to be stuck with smaller screens. Why not just buy a Moto Razr?
  • Because its resolution and color depth sucks. 4" is plenty big for a phone. I dont want to hold a platter to the side of my head to talk on the phone. How big is too big in your opinion? Why not go 5.5"? 7"? 9"
  • Is anyone holding a fun to your head forcing you to buy one? No, didn't think so. You can buy a 4" phone if you want. Me personally, my next phone will be 4.5" or 4.3", why? Because I like the bigger screen. That's why they make so many different phones so that people will have options.
  • Oh, I'm sorry. I was under the impression that opinions were allowed on here. I didnt know "mdoyal1" had a veto on any opinions posted on here, heh heh.
  • Oh I'm sorry, I thought that MY opinion on your opinion was allowed..
  • Lmao. I see what you did there ;)
  • Do you really think .2" measured diagonally is going to make a noticeable difference? I don't. Personally, I welcome any size screen on an Android phone because options only help the platform. We have seen phones with screens ranging from 3.1" (Droid Pro/Motorola XPRT) to 5" (Dell Streak) & there has been a market for both & everything in between. I have a Droid X & my wife has a Droid 2. I think her phone is too small (I have large hands), she thinks mine is too big (she is 5'3"). This isn't Apple, we have choice in hardware. If you don't want it because of size, you will have other options with similar specs.
  • I agree with JD, 4.5 is too big for me. I had a look at the 4.5" Samsung Infuse and it looked and felt gigantic. Amazing how 4.3" felt right at the edge of my comfort zone, maybe cause the GS2 is so thin? mdoyal1 has a point though, choice is good, and there certainly are people who do lust for the extra .2 inches and thanks to our Android manufacturers, they get that choice.
  • Im actually surprised that they didn't ditch the SuperAMOLED screen for an LCD one , like the GS + , GS-SL , Int. NS & GR ...
