Telstra Launches Samsung GALAXY S II 4G LTE

Telstra launched its second LTE smartphone - the Samsung GALAXY S II 4G.

SII 4G features a larger WVGA (800×480) SuperAMOLED Plus screen measuring in at 4.5-inches. Compared with the Galaxy SII it also has a more powerful 1.5GHz dual core processor onboard to support fast web browsing and easy switching between multiple apps, games and videos. It comes with an NFC chip built in for NFC tag reading.

Multimedia functions include an 8 megapixel camera and 1080p full HD video recording. The phone comes with 16GB of built-in memory, a large battery with a capacity of 1850mAh, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n support, and Bluetooth 3.0+HS. The Galaxy SII 4G has HD Voice support which enables crisper, clearer calls when chatting to other people with HD Voice compatible handsets on the Telstra Mobile Network.

Telstra's LTE footprint currently covers capital city CBDs, associated airports and more than 80 regional and metropolitan locations. Typical download speeds range from 2Mbps to 40Mbps and typical upload speeds from 1Mbps to 10Mbps. When outside 4G coverage areas the Samsung GALAXY S II 4G uses HSPA+ Dual Channel technology for download speeds ranging from 1.1Mbps-20Mbps in all capital CBDs and much of the associated metropolitan areas and many regional locations. Outside of these areas the device transitions to Telstra’s fastest available 3G speeds.
