ATT special event tapped for May 5 in NYC
AT&T and Samsung on Monday sent out invitations for a special event in New York City on May 5 at 4PM. The gathering doesn't have any details beyond its being a "special announcement," but the network has yet to show a finished, shipping version of the Infuse 4G it unveiled at CES. The extra-large Android flagship was recently rumored as shipping in May and would be due for an unveil soon.
The Infuse 4G is an unusual crossover device for Samsung. Its 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen is as new as and bigger than that in the Galaxy S II and Droid Charge, but its performance is an unknown. Samsung has promised a 1.2GHz processor of its own but hasn't said whether that would be a dual-core chip like the Exynos in the Galaxy S II or a single-core design.
Electronista hopes to be at the event and to provide a hands-on of whatever arrives.
