    Samsung Celox with 4G LTE Makes Real World Appearance, Physical Button Removed - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog)

    I know we saw leaked photos of this device already, but now it has the 4 buttons that the Galaxy S I had in the US. It would be pretty easy for Samsung to adjust it for 700mhz bands, but I don't know how the CDMA radios actually work and I wont pretend I do.

    Alls I'm saying is that this could be a good sign. How do you guys feel about the Snapdragon dual-core over the Exynos? Personally, I was hoping for the latter...

    I'd rather see that version than a 3d version but still the most desirable to me would be one with the exynos processor, even if it was clocked lower.

    celox- no dictionary results

    I have a feeling that Celox is not the real name of this device. Celox is some sort of bandaide/medical stuff.

    I totally agree, but if this guarantees 4G, then I am fine with the Snapdragon.

    When I saw the title for this thread, I thought you'd be referring to the fact that the iphone 5 looks like it may be LTE, which is another major reason Samsung would release the serious competitor to the iphone as an LTE device.

    Ehhhhhh, BGR (which was the source for the Engadget article) said this:

    While we cant confirm that the upcoming fifth-generation iPhone will be able to support 4G LTE, we can now exclusively confirm that Apples carrier partners are testing iPhone models with LTE capability
    That's a big stretch to say it's "looking like" the iPhone 5 will have LTE based on that report.

    It's an even bigger stretch given Apple's track record of intentionally releasing devices with key features missing to ensure that iSheep will purchase every single version of said devices.

    If the rumored specs are correct LTE gsm hspa, it could very well be one of the new ATT phones.

    I hope an LTE variant is coming to Verizon with awesome battery life.

    Eh, I wouldn't say that. They used to be a decent source for info, nut they have become increasingly desperate for views. Not to mention most of their articles are based on "analyst" predictions.

    Maybe for the ipad 3? Since it is being pushed back for supposed "supply demands." That way they can really sue samsung since they will have lte and must have patented that too.

    IF the iPhone 5 is going to have LTE, then you gotta figure Samsung will want their GSII to have LTE, as well.

    Which may be why samsung waited and isnt announcing their sgs2 until the 29th?

    I am waiting to see if it has LTE. If not, I'm going with the Bionic.

    After playing with the Droid 3 and using the "new" Blur, I can safely say I am happy I decided not to go with the Bionic. If the GSII does not have 4G, then I'll wait the extra month for the Nexus Prime which is rumored to be coming to Verizon in October.

    Color me stupid, but would/could there be much of a noticeable performance difference between the two processors?

    Does anyone really believe that the Nexus Prime will be out in October on Verizon? I don't think it's very likely.

    Eh, I think it's likely if Google wants to successfully combat the iPhone. What I'm HOPING they will do is coordinate a launch in October on every carrier. Now that would be cool.

    Ah, hope. Hope can be a dangerous thing. It's not very likely. I don't think we'll see Prime on VZW until January.

    in all honesty, i dont think a nexus device could compete with the iphone. the average customer does not care about a vanilla device; only geeks like us do.

    It could if it's on Verizon, and they back it with serious marketing.
