Samsung: No Plans for Taking the Focus S International

Samsung’s Focus S is one of the hottest phones to be a part of the Windows Phone second generation. With an eight-megapixel camera, fast 1.4GHz processor, and big 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, it’s easy to see why. So far, though, the handset’s exclusivity has been an issue, and it’s only an option to AT&T subscribers in the States. If you were hoping that the Focus S might someday see a wider release, we’ve got some bad news for you, as a Samsung exec has apparently confirmed the Focus S will be staying in the US.

This news comes courtesy of an interview with Samsung France’s Head of Telecommunications Products, Isabelle Rojanathara. According to those with a better understanding of French than ourselves, during this interview she discounts the possibility for Samsung bringing the Focus S to its customers outside of the United States.

For now, apparently, the best Samsung Windows Phone option for many people will be the Omnia W, also known as the Focus Flash. It only has a 3.7-inch screen, a five-megapixel main camera, and half as much flash storage as the Focus S, but at least the Omnia W’s processor puts it on the same level as the Focus S.
