Rounding out the devices AT&T has announced this morning is the Samsung Infuse 4G, which packs a huge 4.5" Super AMOLED plus display. We're not certain what plus adds to super beyond even better sharpness and outdoor visibility. It's possible that super AMOLED plus includes a different subpixel pattern with greater density than Pentile, however we're not entirely certain yet. 

The device is 9mm thin, which AT&T claims is its thinnest smartphone - sure enough, the iPhone 4 is just 0.3 mm thicker. The 4.5 inch display is the largest we know of as well.

It appears that AT&T is taking a nod from T-Mobile and calling HSPA+ 21 Mbps devices "4G," something that while technically is kosher now by ITU standards, really isn't as exciting or fast as LTE. Details about the Infuse 4G are scant beyond it including an 8 megapixel rear facing camera and 1.3 megapixel front facing camera, and running Android 2.2 as well. The Infuse 4G also includes a Hummingbird SoC clocked 1.2 GHz.

    You know of the 5" display on the AT&T-locked http://www.anandtech.com/show/3853/the-dell-streak...">Dell Streak. I guess it's not an "AT&T smartphone" because it's only available on Dell's website.

    I have the Fascinate. Wonderful phone, but the screen sucks so much juice it's ridiculous. Plus, who trusts Samsung after the GPS fiasco of the ENTIRE Galaxy S line? That, and how long have Galaxy S owners been promised Froyo? Come on.

    I'm not sure I will ever buy another Samsung phone.

    I'm sure that Samsung will continue to do well in the phone/android space for awhile because the masses do not know the backstory. But that said, there are consumers like us that feel the whole idea of 'once bitten, twice shy" attitude.

    I'm really in the market for one of these ATT phones, and it is that recent spat about Froyo/Gingerbread that has me wondering if they are going to do the same thing again. I'm not someone that goes out every 12 months and upgrades my phone/plan. I can use the same phone for 2-3 years (or beyond) and keep it in great shape.
