Samsung to Release Galaxy S II with WiMax

WiMAX players should listen to this closely: News is that Samsung will soon releases Galaxy S II which will be WiMax enabled version. If you are already an SGS II lover, this news will surely add something to it.

Just imagine a place like Pakistan, with no 3G, but a way to have a high speed internet phone – definitely a mouth watering thing that is about to happen soon.

Samsung will launch this phone sometime in  August in the US market. After going through FCC regulations recently, experts say that this depicted phone is very much similar to the leaked picture of sprint-based Galaxy S II.

Sprint version incorporates the same specs such as 1.2GHz dual core processors as the EU version, and Google’s 2.3 Android Gingerbread. Difference in dimensions is there as phone will be 5mm taller and 3mm wider.

It will not be long now when we will enter into a new era of WiMax enabled devices, and one such popular device – Galaxy S II is coming with this facility, sometime in August.

It merits mentioning here that Galaxy S II has already made its mark throughout the world and recently passed sales record of Apple’s iPhone as well. It is said that company has sold some 5 million SGS II handsets worldwide in 90 days, without hitting the US market yet.

 


  • really!!

    do the carriers support wimax on mobile such as …wateen supporting its network without its modem and directly on cellphones??

  • Fawad

    This will require some partnership with a WiMAX operator in Pakistan. Possibly Wi-Tribe or Qubee would install an application within each set to pick the WiMAX connection by default.

    The handset price could be increased to incorporate these costs. Or bundled with a package.

    Ufone’s futura was based on the similar concept but a different technology: EvDO vs Wimax?

  • Ansari

    hahaha you could have at least credited me for highlighting the mistakes….. how cheap!!

  • This shows Samsung is really struggling to snatch the Market Share from its competitors! WiMax is an innovative idea in cellphone history, moreover in a Smart-phone. I was waiting for something really like this, Will go for Samsung Galaxy S II =D

  • Quratulain

    There are already laptops available who have built in Wimax modems. I tried to setup the modem with my wimax provider (witribe) and they refused to do so. Even though it would have been easy to simply register the modem id/mac address on their system and allow it to connect. But no, our people are generally penny wise and pound foolish.

    Great news, but what about battery life? Unless the Li Ion battery is replaced by some new innovation/invention, users are going to have a hard time.

  • WiMAX Supporter

    @Rafay… Wateen is not winding up they are dismantling sites from areas with low number of customers

  • Stunner…I must say!
