AT&T Wireless and Samsung Mobile announced the thin and light Infuse 4G smartphone during a press event Thursday in New York.
The phone is 8.99 millimeters (0.35 inches) thick—a fraction thinner than Apple’s iPhone 4—and has a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display, one of Samsung’s most advanced, said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president for devices at AT&T Wireless.
The device weighs 133 grams (4.7 ounces) and is powered by a single-core ARM processor running at 1.2GHz. It runs Google’s Android 2.2 OS and will go on sale in the U.S. on May 15, priced at $199 with a two-year wireless contract. It runs on AT&T’s HSPA+ (Evolved High-Speed Packet Access) network, which AT&T considers a 4G service.
The display shows more pixels than Samsung’s previous AMOLED smartphone screens offered on the AT&T network, Bradley said. Infuse also has an 8-megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash.
