Anyone remember the Korean GSII? What happened to that?

For everyone saying that the Nexus has a slower processor because of LTE I give you the Korean GSII:

"Samsung on Monday unveiled three new smartphones in South Korea, the GALAXY S II LTE and GALAXY S II HD LTE Android phones, and the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango-powered Omnia W. The GALAXY S II HD LTE is Samsung’s first GALAXY-branded smartphone to feature a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display, with a pixel count coming in at 1280 x 720 equal to 316 ppi. It also features a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of memory, an 8-megapixel camera with support for 1080p HD video capture, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and, as its mouthful of a name might suggest, 4G LTE support. "


I cant find anything on what the actual processor is, but these phones pretty much beat the Nexus in every category and they have LTE. So why again did we get a premier device without premier hardware again? It sure isn't because they couldn't do it.

Samsung is a Korean brand.

My best guess is that they keep the best tech over on their side?

Everything is either on par or slightly better. The camera might be 8MP but who says is has the same quality as the one the GN is supposed to have. The camera in the GN is supposed to also have zero shutter lag. I would bet that the processor is the same in both devices except that the GN's is underclocked.

16GB of memory - same
HD SAMOLED display - same
LTE - Same

so where is this premiere hardware again?

Thats the point there isn't any. Also if it is the same processor why would the down clock it in the Prime, the supposed flagship, and run it at full speed in the Korean one?

Also do a quick search of Korean GSII and Exynos and they all say that's what it has. There was one mention of it possibly having a Qualcomm, but that's strange. No mention however of a TI chip.

The reason we didn't get exynos in the GN is because Google partnered with TI for ICS. Other than that there really is no difference. (MP's don't mean anything really)
