Samsung has just announced in a Korean press release that the Galaxy S II LTE and Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE versions will be announced at Berlin’s IFA, September 2nd. The Galaxy S II LTE packs a 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, higher capacity 1850 mAh battery, and support for NFC. Boy, are these specs impressive.

Tuesday, the Galaxy S II will be announced on U.S. shores on the carriers Sprint, AT&T, and T-mobile. Verizon confirmed to us last week that they wouldn’t be carrying the Galaxy S II, but they never said no to the LTE version. Could this Galaxy S II LTE be making its way to Verizon?

You bet we’ll be covering IFA, but in the meantime, check out a few more beautiful shots after the break:
