Samsung Galaxy S II LTE and Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE Made Official Today

After weeks of hypothesizing, days of great guessing, and minutes of clicking alerts from Samsung, we've got it officially: IFA 2011 will be the home of Samsung's new Galaxy S II LTE as well as their brand new Galaxy Tab 8.9, also with LTE. While we'd guessed that the Galaxy S II might make an appearance at the event, we'd not yet officially heard that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 would be present - now we're sure and wow! LTE as well!

Confirmed as well is this new Galaxy S II's ability to work with LTE / WCDMA / GSM multi-mode. This means that even MORE people around the world can roll out with one of the quickest selling Android devices of all time. The Galaxy S II LTE is set to launch formally on September 2nd, 2011 at IFA 2011 in Berlin. Note also that we'll be there in Germany to give you the full scoop on all devices released by Samsung and beyond!

Next we find that not only is this Galaxy S II enhanced in its ability to connect, it's enhanced in its display as well: a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display will be blasting your eye sockets from here to next year. Its processor is enhanced as well! Now at 1.5GHz and dual-core strong, you wont find another handset with such instant GHz our of the box. Also under the hood is a massive 1850mAh battery so you'll be charging only once every couple of days (probably,) NFC for tag scanning, an 8-megapixel camera on the back, and more!

Next there's the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, the new mid-sized Galaxy Tab from Samsung, this time with LTE right out of the gate. We already know of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE (already carried by Verizon,) and Samsung's original Galaxy Tab 7 which came out quite a few months ago, now we've got the mamma bear: an 8.9 inch display at 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, 8.6mm thick and 455g in weight, plus a 1.5GHz dual-core processor inside. This device is set to formally launch on the 29th of August (tomorrow, that is.)
