Samsung Infuse 4G Hands-on

Samsung Infuse 4G Hands-on
For a good while now, if you wanted to find mainly mid-range Android handsets, then you'd only need to look closely at AT&T's offerings. Their lineup is filled to the top with less impressive Android smartphones, which don't necessarily tickle your fancy in ways that other devices, like the HTC EVO 4G or Motorola DROID X, have accomplished over at their respective carriers. However, that's all looking to change as AT&T customers are in for a special surprise with the Samsung Infuse 4G that came out of left field to surprise many out of their seats.

We know what you're thinking, that ā€œ4Gā€ tucked to its name might imply as being a potential LTE handset, but instead, it will simply offer nothing more than HSPA+ connectivity. Despite that, we managed to get a decent look at this upcoming device that's sure to cause some stir over at AT&T's lineup, since it's one of the few devices to stand out from their existing crop.

We're especially surprised to find it looking ever so streamlined and thin, but even more when you consider that it boasts a number-crunching 4.5ā€ Super AMOLED Plus display with a resolution of 450 x 800 pixels. Needless to say that it radiates all of the magnificent qualities we find with other Super AMOLED panels, but the Plus in its name provides for better viewing angles, 50 percent higher sub-pixel count, which was the main drawback of the first generation Super AMOLED, and improved brightness, so it's easier to view outdoors.

Even though we still can't take our eyes off its slim form, it manages to pack some improved hardware over its other Galaxy S siblings ā€“ such as a 1.2GHz Hummingbird processor, 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front facing one. Looking past its respectable specs, it's currently offering the TouchWiz interface running on top of Android 2.2 Froyo.

We are sure that people are probably contemplating already on when this high-end handset will be getting its Gingerbread treatment. Nevertheless, for AT&T customers, it's surely going to be a win-win situation, since the Samsung Infuse 4G is undeniably a handset that's worth saving for.
