Samsung and AT&T Announce Focus S Windows Phone 7

by -

Samsung and AT&T have just announced the Focus S, the successor to Focus, one of their first Windows Phone 7 released. This announcement comes in an important week when the whole attention is on Microsoft and its BUILD Conference. Samsung and AT&T  have done a smart job by announcing it at the apt time. It surely is destined to get the maximum attention, similar to  the HTC TITAN. So we can call this a Windows 8/Windows Phone 7 week.

Coming back to the phone, the Samsung Focus S is armed with a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon (MSM8255T) processor and comes along with 512MB of RAM. It sports a 4.3-inch Super-AMOLED Plus screen, compared to a Super-AMOLED screen in its predecessor, the Samsung Focus. An 8MP camera beautifies its stance with the option of video-calling, thanks to a 1.3MP front-facing camera.

When it comes to finding the slimmest Windows Phone 7, the Samsung Focus S is a clear winner with a slim waistline of just 8.5mm. The press release from AT&T also states that the Focus S will be capable of 4G speeds, but does not mention anything whether it’s the so-called 4G (HSDPA+) network, or the ‘real’ upcoming 4G LTE network from AT&T.

The Samsung Focus S will hit the United States under the AT&T’s network, sometime in fall.
