FCC approves the AT&T-bound Samsung Infuse 4G
After being given the thumbs-up by the FCC, the slim and sleek Samsung Infuse 4G got a step closer to finally joining AT&T's elite lineup of 4G-enabled Android devices. Just like its counterparts, the Motorola ATRIX 4G and the HTC Inspire 4G, the Samsung Infuse 4G promises super-fast wireless broadband speeds thanks to AT&T's speedy though spotty HSPA+ network.

Besides its 4G connectivity, what makes the Samsung Infuse 4G stand out of the crowd is its relatively huge and impressive 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. The smartphone also brags about being the thinnest device in AT&T's lineup, which should grab the attention of most design-conscious subscribers out there. If we have sparked your interest already, feel free to check out the hands-on that we did a while ago.

Taking a peak under the smartphone's hood reveals a 1.2 GHz single-core Hummingbird processor, which is expected to perform somewhat better than the one found in the HTC Inspire 4G, but will surely lack the kick of the Motorola ATRIX 4G's Tegra 2 chipset. Still, the Samsung Infuse 4G should be powerful enough to shoot beautiful 1080p videos right out of the box via its 8-megapixel shooter.

A release date for the Samsung Infuse 4G is yet to be announced by AT&T, but we doubt it will take them long before launching the Android-powered smartphone. Froyo is what the handheld will ship with, yet we are convinced that an upgrade to Gingerbread will follow shortly after launch.

Out of all the AT&T Android 4G phones, the Samsung Infuse was the one that caught my eye. Ironically, it was the Samsung Captivate that made me want to jump on the Android bandwagon. *sighs* I miss AT&T and their excellent selection of phones. Sprint really needs to step it up. Both coverage wise and phone selection wise.

@Jyakotu my thoughts exactly. I wanted a Captivate for a while. My buddy got one by my recommendation and loves it. Now that I'm out of my iPhone contract (thank god), I can get this beast. Just waiting for a release date.

Those AMOLED screens are the most brilliant displays on the market. I know Samsung has been trying to get in the elite crowd for a couple of years, and the Galaxy class was well respected, though not as responsive or as smooth a running device as some other makers premium offerings (strictly my opinion, of course). This bad boy may put it all together. Wonder if battery life improves any?
