It appears that Samsung is going to continue with the Galaxy S brand name, but this upcoming AT&T handset is unlike any other Galaxy S phone you've seen before. The Samsung Infuse 4G improves on the original in just about every way - in fact, it easily tops any phones on the market today:
- 1.2 GHz (single core) processor
- 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display
- 8 megapixel rear camera
- 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
- HSPA+ support
- TouchWiz UI
- Extremely thin (thinnest phone on AT&T when it launches)
The most interesting aspect is the Super AMOLED Plus display. A 50% increase in sub-pixel count promises better readability in sunlight (a common complaint of Super AMOLED screens) and better contrast. No word on the resolution, but we'll like see an increase from other Galaxy S phones to accommodate for the extra .5" of screen.
According to Engadget, the non-functioning demo unit had a textured back similar to the Captivate, although it may not be the final design. The Galaxy S line is known for feeling cheap due to the plastic design, so hopefully Samsung has learned a lesson and is working to make the Infuse 4G truly superior to the rest of the Galaxy S family.
