Samsung Infuse 4G coming on AT&T with a huge 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, razor thin

The Samsung Infuse 4G was just announced exclusively for AT&T. The Infuse 4G comes with a huge 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display and with razor thin body aiming to top AT&T's list of slim phones. The phone, which runs on Android Froyo, is announced as a Galaxy S phone.


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.

But next comes the biggest surprise – the Infuse 4G is technically not 4G. At least not as in LTE 4G as you might have thought. It comes with HSPA+, which used to be 4G only in the eyes of T-Mobile. Not any more. However all the other specs are not disappointing at all – a single-core Hummingbird sings at 1.2GHz. An 8 megapixel snapper is featured on the back, while the front has a 1.3 megapixel camera.


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.


On the software side, be prepared to see some TouchWiz customization on top of Android 2.2 Froyo. Gingerbread is in the plans, but only for a future update. With so much novelty, the only thing we are left wondering is when is it coming and we hope to get an answer for that soon.

Finally Sammy made SAMOLED with 3 subpixels(RGB), not with 2 like in the older version(Pentile Matrix - RG BG). So I guess the resolution will be the same as in Galaxy S but this time it will be true 800x480. They should do it 1 year ago. On the other hand this resolution on 4,5 inch screen is a little bit to low - we will see pixels definitely.

Most people have lost hope for the Verizon Iphone now. It would be nicer if iOS was open to other companies so we could still enjoy the experience.

att.. late to the party again. now they can claim "4g" as well lol. too bad their footprint for hspa+ is smaller than tmobiles. also too bad LTE is out now and Tmobile is announcing their soon to be live upgrades to 42mb/s.
On the flip side, its a nice phone. I wonder if this is going to be similar to the "Vibrant+" that Tmobile is getting shortly which was supposed to have an 8mpx shooter and HSPA+. least thats what the rumors say.. lol.

Except Verizon's LTE is as fast as AT&T's HSPA+ since they're using a completely new technology and need new infrastructure. After AT&T finishes its HSPA+ upgrade and goes to real 4G LTE, it will be the fastest. And AT&T won't have slow EV-DO switchoff like Verizon when you get out of range of their 4G

No, the captivate is not an HSPA+ phone - it is 7.2, not 14.4

Yeah but you had to do mod your non-flash captivate to make it do that. Please don't tell me your not interested in this phone.

Actually i'll be getting the infuse. The LTE phones are going to be under the same data plans more than likely. I still have unlimited data with att, so the infuse looks pretty good to me. BTW why do you keep ragging on all these new att phones? Just a question.

got the htc desire hd 4.3 inches seems about the limit for me. Unless they were able to keep the same body size as the HTC (or similar) and widen the screen in that area.
