Samsung Exhibiting at WP Event, Launches Pages for Focus S, Flash


As AT&T was laying-out its upcoming lineup of Windows Phone Mango handsets last month, it described plans to carry the Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash. Since then, the phones have appeared on the official Microsoft Windows Phone site; it seemed like the only company that wasn’t aware of them was Samsung itself. Now the manufacturer has finally launched product pages for the pair, suggesting we’re nearing their releases, and we’re seeing the duo featured on invitations to a November 7 AT&T Windows Phone event.

The Galaxy-S-II-alike Focus S (pictured above, center), as the name should clue you in, is a hardware-refresh to last year’s original Focus. That means a bigger and better 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, processor bump up to 1.4GHz, a rear camera upgrade to eight megapixels, and the inclusion of a front-facer.

If the Focus Flash looks familiar to you (above, left), that’s probably because you’ve seen it pictured before as the Omnia W. It sure seemed like those two models were going to share the same hardware, and this new product page nearly confirms it, providing the Flash with dimensions matching the Omnia W’s. The Flash is like a scaled-down Focus S, with only a 3.7-inch screen and a five-megapixel main camera.

Chances are, we’ll learn at least some additional launch details for these new Focus models at the Windows Phone event.
