How big can a smartphone’s display get before it becomes a tablet? AT&T and Samsung are pushing the limit with the Samsung Infuse 4G, a smartphone running on AT&T’s HSPA+ network with a 4.5-inch display.
The Infuse 4G sports the company’s Super AMOLED Plus technology, the next generation of Super AMOLED, a super-thin display which produces gorgeous colors and high visibility indoors and out. It has 50 percent more subpixels for better clarity and readability outdoors, according to Samsung. (I’m a big fan of Super AMOLED and was disappointed when the Samsung Galaxy Tab didn’t use it.)
The Infuse 4G is powered by the older Android 2.2 and runs on a 1.2GHz processor. Other enticing specs include an 8-megapixel camera with HD video recording, and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video calls.
AT&T did not announce availability or pricing, but we will definitely get our hands on it this afternoon so stay tuned for pictures, video and first impressions.
