Galaxy S II (Celox) Bigger Inclusions: Europe But No US?

For the last umpteen weeks, America has been waiting for some signs of the new Galaxy S II handset from Samsung to make its official appearance. Other countries have been lucky enough to experience it with global sales reaching rocketing heights, but for reasons still really unknown, the US have been left until last. There is good news on the horizon with rumor that the handset will drop on US soil on or around 12th August with carrier Verizon in tow, but let’s just wait and see!

In the last few days, news has filtered through that the T-Mobile variant of the device will be called the Samsung Hercules, a device of which we spoke about a few weeks back and just today our very own Debbie brought us news that Sprint’s version will be called the Epic 4G Touch, so we can’t help but look on the bright side. Added to this, we’ll pleased to report another piece of news from the guys over at Engadget.

Just this morning, we found out that another Galaxy S II rumor was transpiring, that of a handset presently called “Celox.” We have to point out that its only a codename and the news comes from South Korea, but its the specifications that are more than impressive.

Currently the Samsung Galaxy S II or equivalent dependant on carrier, includes a 4.3-inch Super Amoled Plus display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, impressive 8 megapixel camera with 2 megapixel to the front, TouchWiz UI and so on. But the Celox has plenty more to offer.

Rumored to come to market, the Celox will sport a bigger 4.5-inch display with WVGA Super Amoled Plus display, 16GB of memory with expandability to 32GB, running on Android Gingerbread OS, 8 megapixel rear camera with 2 megapixel to the front again, 800MHz LTE support, bigger 1750mAh battery compared to the Galaxy S II’s 1650mAh and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

As Amar Toor pointed out, with US carriers AT&T and Verizon happily supporting 700MHz LTE capabilities and the rumored Celox including 800MHz LTE support, the phone may just as well head to Europe for its release and leave the States behind.

Give us your thoughts on yet another Samsung offering? Would you be happy to stick with the Galaxy S II or prefer to have something with a bit more balls to it?
