The HD LTE features 4G LTE, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, an amazing 4.65-inch Super AMOLDED HD display, with 1280 x 720 pixels at 316 pixels per inch. Alongside, a 1.5GHz processor is embedded, 16GB of onboard memory, and an 8-megapizel camera that is 1080p HD video capable.
Second on our list is the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE which is almost identical to the 4G LTE, with the exception of a 4.65-inch display. The LTE features a 4.5-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display and will most likely be a cheaper phone on the market.
The Omnia W is a non-Android device and took a turn for Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform; to be specific, the 7.5 Mango. This phone features a 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel camera, 8GB of storage, and a 1.4GHz processor. The Omnia W is a little on the smaller side, comparing it to the Galaxy S II’s, but it’s sure to bring in some consumers with a slightly lower budget.
Although the Samsung Galaxy S II models have just been introduced in some countries, the South Korean-based company does not intend to surrender against its competitors, primarily Apple. On a side note, Apple and Samsung have been initiating a sort of smartphone war that does not seem to end. The two companies are consistently banning the sale of their opponent’s devices in countries all over the world; the Netherlands and Germany, just to name a few.
The suing and counter-suing between Apple and Samsung never ceases to end. The patent and title issues are frequently mentioned and seen as an opportunity to knock each other down. As an example, the Samsung Galaxy S II was once proclaimed the thinnest smartphone on the market today. However, Apple wanted the title and saw an opportunity to strike Samsung’s title. The current Samsung Galaxy S II is in fact, thinner than the iPhone 4, but the bottom of the device is 9.91 mm thick. This makes the Samsung Galaxy S II 0.61 mm thicker than the iPhone 4’s body design. Although the title of “The World’s Thinnest Smartphone” isn’t the most significant thing to brag about, it is an aspect that will attract a certain crowd of consumers in the cellular market.
When it comes to the release of Apple and Samsung’s devices, Samsung does have a slight edge over Apple because of their more scheduled released. However, Apple counters this fact because of their loyal customers that will almost always purchase an iPhone, as opposed to a Galaxy device. Whatever the case may be, both of the companies hold reputable titles as corporate giants and have the ability to cope with losses in the smartphone market.
Unfortunately, as smartphones become more popular and non-smartphones become obsolete, the domination of the cellular market will increasingly become more important to the companies. What will come next: Radical design modifications, a new OS concept? We’ll see…
