Already showcased by Deutsche Telekom at last year's IFA in Berlin, the Samsung GT-I9210 has finally received its official Global Certification Forum approval for Europe. According to the GCF, the so called Galaxy S II LTE supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, dualband UMTS/HSDPA+/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz as well as dualband LTE at Europe's 800/2600 MHz bands. Other than that, the Galaxy S II LTE is pretty much the same as the original Galaxy S II from last year, featuring Android 2.3/Gingerbread, a 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, a 8 megapixel autofocus camera as well as Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi g/g/n at 2.4 and 5.0 GHz.
Since it's already pre-announced at Samsung's Swedish website as "upcoming", it's not a device we can expect to be announced (again) at next week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. However, the support for all European GSM, UMTS and LTE bands could make a launch across Europe quite possible, especially after the first LTE smartphones are launched next months.
