We all know Samsung has released quite a lot of Android running smartphones in the world and especially in the US, but thing has it that the South Korean manufacturer  is on its course to release yet another top tier device in the very near future.

This new addition to the Android ranks is going to be the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD. Just yesterday it has passed the FCC trials and it now looks ready for its official debut. Although the device was officially unveiled some time ago, it has since then managed to avoid any more information leaks, to the point that the release date became an unknown.

Thankfully this recent visit to the FCC gave us hope of seeing this slightly upgraded version of the international Samsung Galaxy S II i9100 on the market rather sooner than later. And speaking of specs, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD will come with a nice 4.65 inches Super AMOLED Plus screen capable of, you guessed it, 720 x 1280 resolution. This is exactly the same resolution as the famous Galaxy Nexus, but with the normal RGB pixel matrix.

Other interesting specs include a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM and the now pretty standard 8 MP camera on the back alongside a 2 MP snapper on the front. The Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD will be more than capable of 1080p videos but the most interesting spec of the device is the LTE connectivity.

As far as the software is concerned, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD will come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread but it will be upgraded to Android 4.0 ICS in the near future.

As this particular device is headed for AT&T we suspect that the LTE modem is going to be a great asset alongside the NFC compatibility and the other high end specs. No word was given about the official release date but it should be pretty soon, and as long as the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD lands before the new batch of HTC phones it should make quite a stir.
