Samsung Infuse 4G due May 12 for $200 on contract
The Samsung Infuse 4G due for AT&T and recently spotted at the FCC will be unveiled by the carrier and its maker later today, likely at a planned press event. ThisIsMyNext learned early from a "trusted source" that the handset will cost $200 on a two-year contract when it arrives. The ship date, while not yet confirmed, is expected to be May 12 based on a leaked Costco flyer.
The phone will sport a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, along with a 1.2GHz Samsung-made processor. It will have Android 2.2 preloaded, along with an eight-megapixel camera out back and a 1.3-megapixel shooter facing front. The device will not have true 4G network support, as its name would suggest, but just HSPA+ 3G access.
