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.
