Samsung Unpacked Teaser Hints at Galaxy S II Upgrade [Update: VIDEO]

What we've been lucky enough to get a glimpse of today is a teaser video for Samsung's "Unpacked" event at IFA 2011 in Berlin. The video at this very moment appears to have been switched back to Private, but what we've seen is essentially a new version of the Samsung Galaxy S II "light" videos which incidentally revealed to us our very first look at the Galaxy S II back in February. What we're basically betting the farm on here is that this is a slightly updated version of the Samsung Galaxy S II that's able to work with 4G LTE bands.

Before the video was set to private, we noticed a bit of text below the video. Checking for a cached version of the video turned up a bit of text. This text does not explicitly say what this new revelation is, but "something big" could mean several things. First, it could mean that they're expanding the screen size of the Galaxy S II to 4.5-inches. We've seen the Infuse 4G working with a 4.5-inch display here in the USA and it's fabulous, certainly not too large to be called overly gigantic as its been called several time by the haters in the peanut gallery. Second, big could just refer to the idea that the announcement itself is big. Third, they could just have some completely new device we've never seen or heard of before, but that's doubtful.
