Samsung signals HD smartphones with supersize screens

Galaxy S II gets high-def treatment

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Samsung had its hands full today, launching several phones, including this refreshed Galaxy S II with a large HD screen.

The Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE - which was announced in Korean this morning - sports a 4.65in OLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 720. The handset is apparently the first with an OLED display to feature a higher pixel density than 300ppi, rocking in at 316 pixels per inch.

Other features include 16GB of storage, an 8Mp camera with 1080p video recording, NFC support and a large, 1850mAh battery.

The company has also launched a smaller version, the Galaxy S II LTE, which shares many of the features found on the aforementioned HD model, but downsizes the screen to a 4.5in, 480 x 800 display.

While LTE services may not be applicable in Blighty - well, not just yet, anyway - it's possible that we'll see the handsets head this way soon. Pricing and availability are unknown, though. ®
