AT&T, US-based cellular service provider has announced its Windows Phone 7.5 Mango lineup which includes Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash handsets.
Focus S features a massive 4.3 inch Super amoled plus display. In a way it is a Windows Phone version of the Galaxy S II GT-i9100 handset. The Focus S is mere 8.55mm thin and most likely to become the thinnest handset that runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update. Under its thin profile, this handset houses a 1.4 GHz processor to power the Mango update. With 4G capable speeds, the Focus S has a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera to enable video calling and video chat, hopefully. At the rear is located a 8 megapixel image sensor bearing camera that can be expected to record 720p HD video easily.
While the Samsung Focus Flash (GT-i8350) seems to be the handset which can be slotted between Focus and Focus S. This Samsung handset comes with a 3.7-inch Super amoled display and houses a 1.4 GHz mobile processor. At the rear lies a 5 megapixel camera and there is a front facing VGA camera as well for video calls.
Both handsets feature Super amoled technologies and sport 1.4 GHz processor which clearly shows Samsung’s commitment as well as aspiration to become the top handset provide in Windows Phone space as well. These handsets can be expected to be available some time later in this year in US region.
Microsoft hinted that the Windows Phone 7 based operating system as well as the device will be officially launched but did not confirm the timeframe.
