More than a month ago, AT&T revealed out its plans to launch three Windows Phones this year. Now at AllThingsD Asia conference, Microsoft’s Andy Lees shows off the AT&T’s Samsung Focus S handset along with Samsung Focus Flash and HTC Titan. Microsoft has also released first set of press shots and live images of the Samsung Focus S handset, which is gearing up to launch on AT&T network with 4G (HSPA+) capability on the board and this handset would be one of the first handsets for AT&T to ship with the new Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS locked inside. Looks wise, it is very similar to the Android OS powered Samsung Galaxy S II handset.
Specs wise, Samsung Focus S would be having a 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 single-core processor, sporting a 4.3-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display. The primary camera is 720p HD video recording capable 8 megapixel shooter, while there is a 1.3 megapixel front-facing webcam for forwarding video chats. Previously, AT&T has stated that the Focus S will be powered by 1.4GHz CPU, but Microsoft is claiming about 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor for this handset. It seems that Samsung might have upgraded the processor for Focus S handset.
Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn’t provided the details about the launch date and the price info of the AT&T branded Samsung Focus S handset. Check out the live images of the handset after the break.
