Verizon Support Claims That Their Samsung Galaxy S II Will Indeed Have 4G LTE (Updated)

Official Verizon support just dropped the tweet you are seeing above which states that their version of the Samsung Galaxy S II will have 4G LTE.  We have all been speculating as to whether or not the device would launch on Big Red with 4G since it certainly seems like it will on every other carrier.  The idea of it launching so close to the Bionic though, had us doubting.  This would seemingly change those thoughts and is huge news, especially if we are to see the device in August.  Unless of course that in an hour they retract it to say that they meant “the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have 4G.”  But for now though, we’re jumping up and down with joy.  

Update:  And as expected, the damage control has begun, although no one is necessarily denying that the phone exists or that it will or will not have 4G.  You’ll see in both responses that different support reps are scrambling…

Not exactly sure what “not in our website” is supposed to mean, but again, isn’t really a denial.

If this statement does indeed hold up, feel free to tell us in the comments what you plan on making your next device.

Cheers @sparty569!

     Moto has dropped the ball on the Bionic.  If Samsung decides to take
    advantage, far be it from me to stay on the Moto bandwagon….

    i have the same point with you :

    I dont see how they get galaxy tab confused with galaxy s 2. I mean they
    even address it differently I think they are just trying to cover their
    ass. Why does a different person respond to clarify what the other
    person was talking about? Seems fishy to me.

    if this is true, good by moto!!!!

    If it DOES wind up having 4gLTE, and releases before the Bionic, I’ll get the Galaxy S2.  Sorry Moto, you just took too long.

    • matt

      Not to mention, I got an email a couple days ago letting me know 4gLTE is now covering my area.

    Bye Bye Forever!!! MOTO!!!!

    Here is the response I got from VZW support  “We do not have a release date or information on the Samsung Galaxy S2. For updates visit this link http://bit.ly/mDJfIP ^LM”  Same initials as above, I think they let it slip out and now covering it up.

    Bring on the BIONIC! :D

    If the GSII has LTE and TouchWiz doesn’t suck, then I’ll be getting that.  Otherwise, it’s the Bionic for me.

      Touchwiz 4.0 is better than any other

    If the Samsung Galaxy S II has 4G and the Droid Bionic doesn’t have an unlocked bootloader, then I will get the Samsung Galaxy S II. In the meantime, I’m going to stick with the Droid Bionic.

    I think people are forgetting how all around horrible the Samsung Galaxy 1 model phones were. I owned one, I know.Yea sure the processor may be good but I dont trust the other components after seeing the garbage that was in the S1’s. And Moto, they have some nice phones, but they have some un-talented people writing their software, and they could care less about memory management/ram allocation in their devices. Go HTC! (except for the TB debacle)

      Have you not seen the hands on with the sgs1? I had a fascinate and agree it sucked but the sgs1 was no where near as praised by every tech site how the SGS2 is.

      • Stelv81

        The SGS2 model that is being praised is the European GSM model. Part of the problem with the Fascinate S1 is that it’s radio and GPS performed horribly on Verizons CDMA network. Hopefully they have fixed their radios in the SGS2 for CDMA. And hopefully it’s not Binged out, this phone should be good out of the box not needed to be rooted to be useful.

    So hey Motorola….Umm……Remember when you guys had all that hype for that oh so wonderful Droid Bionic of yours and you guys could have had millions of sales, but instead you kept on delaying it……Well ya all that hype is gone good luck selling it……

  • Mike Mike

    WOW! Today’s a game changer. HTC Vigor coming soon and SGSII being LTE! Awesome! And to the people saying “wait for the Nexus Prime on VZW” keep waiting. VZW will never have a Nexus device.

    Why is it so damn hard for VZ to know the difference between a Galaxy S2 and a Galaxy Tab?!

    As for the phone I’m waiting for… it’s still the SGS2… I’ve been waiting all summer for VZ to get this…

    Lol I love how you all really think a non DROID branded device is gonna be better than a DROID. You don’t spend that kinda money on licensing just to let it be second place.

  • David Hayden

    lmao, these service people need to get a clue about what they’re talking about, or maybe they’re just trolling.

    I give up. I’m tired and I just wanna go back to bed….

    Everyone lets calm the hell down.  I believe last I check VZW flagship phone Droid Incredible is now Droid Incredible II with no LTE support.  My theory is Fascinate and Fascinate II will also be 3G.  What a waist now how about the Bionic or IPHONE.
