AT&T gets the Samsung Focus 2: extremely affordable LTE Windows Phone
The Samsung Focus 2 has just arrived on AT&T, and it’s Windows Phone done in the Samsung way with a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display and 4G LTE connectivity. Pair this with an affordable price tag of only $50 and a handful of rumors coming to reality (yep, that looks like the Samsung Mandel we’ve been seeing recently), the phone will definitely grab some hearts. The Focus 2 release date is set for May 20th, less than two weeks from now.

The Samsung Focus 2 gets the maximum processing power that Windows Phone supports now cand that’s a 1.4GHz single-core processor. There are two cameras on the handset - a 5-megapixel rear one and a VGA front-facing shooter. It sports 8 gigs of internal memory.

The white paint job of the handset catches the eye. Dimension-wise it’s above the average thickness with a 0.43-inch (10.98mm) thick body and it weighs 4.3 ounces.

The second-gen Focus is a successor to one of the most successful Windows Phone handsets launched with the arrival of Microsoft’s platform, the original Focus, and it takes a direct jab at rival Nokia Lumia 900. The 4.3-inch Nokia Windows Phone offers similar features with a premium design, but the Focus 2 beats in affordability with its extremely affordable $50 on-contract price tag.

The WP-based Focus 2 comes as part of the upcoming CTIA expo, so stay tuned - there should be more phone action to come. But now, place all your focus on the gallery below for a detailed look at the Focus 2 and let us know, is that the new Windows Phone king at AT&T?
