Use Chrome translator if you don't know Korean.. The first official HD resolution phone in the Galaxy - you see what I did there!

You forgot to mention LTE support on both phones
I guess we know what the Nexus Prime is going to be touting when it gets released

Surprisingly, HD version is slightly narrower than the regular version

Was hoping for a better SoC and it seems that Samsung is still stuck using pentile sub matrixes at that resolution so sharpness-wise it won't be much better than the SGS II.

Guess we'll see another iteration of this phone, aka Nexus Prime, come October 4th.

without having seen the screen i wouldn't make that statement. Also everyone that has seen the Galaxy Note has commented on how sharp the screen is and this is supporting the same res but in a much more compact screen size

While that is true, I have serious doubts concerning anything pentile after having used the Samsung Galaxy S.

Hmm could this new beast be carrying one of TI's newer 4470s with an SGX544?

96k pixels/inch (SAMOLED Galaxy S) vs 198k pixles/inch (SAMOLED HD Galaxy S2 HD)

It's a pretty substantial jump in pixel density

you don't need English to know what this means



quite clearly shows HD uses 1280x720 resolution instead of normal 800x480

in a related matter...

we all know what LTE and HSPA+ are

but what the heck is the new LGU+ (Revision A)?... found it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LG_U%2B

seems like a new highspeed technology not widely supported anywhere else but Korea, and it's just Revision A, so it's not even final

seems like a proprietary LTE by LG, that is not the regular LTE used elsewhere
