On January 5th, 2011, Samsung announced the new 4G Infuse at the Consumer Electronics show. Reported on by Andrew Munchbach, the Infuse features a large (4.5 inch) Active Matrix Organic LED (AMOLED) touch-sensitive screen.
The 1.2 GHz processor will be running Android 2.2, and is joined by an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and HD recording capability. It is expected to become available in the second half of 2011.
The official announcement from AT & T was short and very much to the point:
The Samsung Infuse™ 4G will be the thinnest Android device and feature the largest screen — at 4.5 inches — in AT&T’s smartphone lineup. The device delivers a brilliant display using Samsung’s next-generation Super AMOLED™ Plus technology which features 50% more sub-pixels for better contrast and outdoor readability. The Infuse will be powered by a 1.2 GHz application processor and run the Android 2.2 platform. This device is slated for launch in the second quarter of 2011, only for AT&T customers.
