Microsoft Unveils Pictures Of AT&T Samsung Focus S, Focus Flash


A little bit more than a month ago AT&T made its Windows Phone Mango line-up public and the HTC Titan, Samsung Focus Flash and Focus S are part of it. While we’ve seen the HTC Titan get launched and even reviewed it (the European model), there was no real information regarding the Focus Flash and the Focus S.

To be quite fair, everyone was expecting the Focus Flash to be the American variant of the recently announced Omnia W just as everyone was expecting the Focus S (probably Omnia S outside the U.S.) to be a Windows Phone powered Galaxy S II. Those who believed that appear to be right as Microsoft made the first official pictures available of the two phones.


Last time they did this to the ZTE Tania, an announcement came just a little bit after so we’re expecting official wording from Samsung any time now. On to the phones and let’s start with the Focus S! Is that a Galaxy S II in your pocket? No, it’s the Focus S!

It’s the same device we’ve seen in the wild, looking shamelessly like the manufacturer’s Android flagship. It will run on a 1.4GHz processor and feature a 4.3-inch, WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display. The main camera is a 720p-capable eight-megapixel shooter, while the front-facing webcam clocks in at 1.3 megapixels. All the rest is just Galaxy S II on Windows Phone. You just need to imagine that Super AMOLED Plus screen offering true blacks behind the Tiles on the Home Screen!


The Focus Flash, pretty much like its Omnia W cousin, packs a 1.4GHz single-core processor, 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display with WVGA resolution, 8GB Internal Storage, five-megapixel main camera with auto-focus and flash (720p 30fps video recording capable), and VGA front-facer.

Update: The official AT&T Press Release which unveiled the trio of Mango phones listed the Focus S and Focus Flash as both running on a 1.4GHz processor. The official Windows Phone site talks about the Focus S 4G and Focus Flash 4G as being powered by the same 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 CPU. Either Samsung changed the processor along the way or one of the two sources has the wrong specs. Also, the European Omnia W has a 1.4GHz processor so, you be the judge!
