Samsung Infuse 4G, the first phone to use its “4G” HSPA+ network and the first to debut Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus screen technology has been announced by AT&T. the new handset runs Android (2.2 at the moment) and comes with a huge 4.5 inch Super AMOLED display – yup, it’s bigger than the screens of Motorola Droid X and HTC Evo 4G.
You might have heard about Super AMOLED, but the Samsung Infuse 4G is expected with Super AMOLED Plus that has a 50 per cent higher sub-pixel count. The technology promises enhanced contrast and outdoor legibility.
It has an 8 megapixel camera on back paired with a 1.3 megapixel shooter up front, a 1.2GHz single-core Hummingbird processor, and still somehow promises to be the thinnest smartphone on AT&T when it launches at a to-be-determined date. Now, the controversy: despite the name, the Infuse 4G apparently doesn’t have a hint of LTE — it’s HSPA+, which means AT&T’s now playing the same game as T-Mobile and AT&T describing the Infuse 4G as being the carrier’s slimmest handset.
We feel that what used to be a standard 3.5-inch screen size is slowly shifted to larger measures, but let us know your thoughts on having a 4.5 inch screen. The dummy unit displayed at the expo has a matte back cover, but it is still not decided if that will be the material of choice for the final unit. The Galaxy S on its part has glossy plastic on its back.
