    The Samsung Infuse 4G is running on a Samsung Hummingbird CPU running at 1.2GHz on top of Samsung's Touch Wiz flavor of Android 2.2. The capacitive display uses Samsung's Super AMOLED technology and is a very large 4.5" size with the usual WVGA resolution (that's 800x480). In terms of wireless radios, the Infuse 4G includes: WiFi (with N), UMTS with HSPA+ (Category 14) on AT&T's network, Bluetooth 3.0, and GPS (assisted). For imaging, the rear camera (with flash) takes stills at 8MP and video at 720p. For audio out, there is a 3.5mm jack, and for syncing and charging, we have micro USB. An ...

    The newly-unveiled Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T may be one of the thinnest Androids around, but what does it take to get so slim? Obviously, engineers are going to have to make some trade-offs when trying to craft the most svelte smartphone they can imagine; you can easily reduce a phone's size and weight by shrinking the battery, but that trade-off of reduced battery life may be more than users are willing to put up with. Without some more insight into the process that brought the Infuse 4G to life, we can't say for sure if one particular decision was made to help keep the phone slender, but ...

    Here's our video unboxing of the new AT&T Samsung Infuse 4G. The box is designed to mainly match AT&T's branding and since the device is so big, it takes up the full height underneath the top flap. Inside the box are the usual suspects; Micro USB cable, charger, headphones, etc., but you also get a big Micro USB to HDMI adapter so that you can plug the Infuse 4G into an HD TV. The adapter also has a second Micro USB port on it for keeping the device charged while also outputing video to HDMI. It does not come with an HDMI cable, but at least you get the adapter. We're also happy to see a ...

    As soon as the veil came off of the table full of Samsung Infuse 4G devices at tonight's AT&T Cinqo de Mayo event at Rosa Mexicano's in New York City, we got to playing with the device. Below is our initial hands-on video where we take a look at AT&T's newest and fastest Android device. The big deal here is the humungous 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen from Samsung. Plus, it's AT&T's first "4G" HSPA+ device capable of 21Mbps Category 14 download speeds. The Atrix 4G and Inspire 4G are only Category 10 HSPA+ devices that max out at 14.4Mbps. The 4.5 inch screen really is pretty big as you ...

    Android users have been waiting for AT&T to change its ways about sideloading apps since the company first started carrying Android smartphones. In the beginning, the carrier maintained it was just looking out for its customers' best interests, like it or not. With the introduction of Amazon's Appstore as a legitimate alternative to the Android Market, though, renewed pressure to stop treating Android owners like babies and let them decide for themselves how to use their phones led to AT&T announcing it would look into how to give its customers access to Amazon's store. There's been a ...

    We've been wondering what Samsung and AT&T had in store since getting an invite to this afternoon's press event in New York City. While we haven't heard anything back from the event just yet, a quick snap of the setup they've got going reveals quite plainly that the companies are using this opportunity to reveal the Infuse 4G. Once the Stealth V, the now-Infuse 4G will feature a 1.2GHz Hummingbird CPU and a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen. We'll have full details for you shortly, as the event kicks off. Update: It's official now; the Infuse 4G will hit AT&T on May 15, for about $200 ...

    Earlier this week, Samsung sent out invitations to a press event it's got planned for tomorrow afternoon. We've yet to learn just what it has up its sleeves for that one, and now it's already sending out invites to its next one, scheduled for Tuesday, May 24. Unlike tomorrow's event, which Samsung has revealed will be a joint venture with AT&T, there's not any carrier attached to Samsung's shindig later this month. We'd been thinking that this week's announcement may have something to do with the Galaxy S II, as that's the hot new Samsung model of the moment, yet to be introduced to US ...

    We've been hearing about the Samsung Infuse 4G (ex- Stealth V) since this year's Consumer Electronics Show back in January where it was first announced by the manufacturer. It looks like the AT&T smartphone will land at Walmart next month for $178.88. After passing FCC on its way to AT&T last month, the Infuse 4G will be available at Walmart to join the 4G line-up of AT&T -- along with the Motorola Atrix 4G and the HTC Inspire 4G -- for devices capable of higher speeds on the network currently lacking the advertised speed. The Infuse 4G will feature a 1.2GHz Hummingbird CPU along with a ...

    We first heard about the Samsung Infuse 4G back at the end of last year when it was called the Samsung Stealth V -- it got Bluetooth certified then -- and it now has passed FCC with AT&T bands, as we knew the device was bound to this carrier. The model number to watch for is SGH-I997 and it does 850/1900Mhz GSM/GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA/HSPA. The device will most likely join AT&T Inspire 4G on the carrier's high-speed -- disputed -- 4G smartphone line-up. The Infuse 4G is a Galaxy S branded device and it should be a killer one thanks to its 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. Additionally, it will ...

    Thanks to the need of smartphone OEM employees to share test photos amongst one another, sites like Picasa and Flickr are full of images captured with unreleased and, in some cases, unannounced devices. Most of these shots are about as inartistic as you can imagine: picture after picture of people's keyboards, mice, and coffee mugs -- when they're not macro shots of the wall. However, there are always a few gems among the junk, and we've managed to collect decent snaps of almost every handset announced at CES. (Full disclosure: we cheated with the Inspire 4G and Thunderbolt from HTC by ...

    Hot off the heels of its CES showing, including the SCH-i520 for Verizon LTE and the Infuse 4G on AT&T, Samsung is ready to add yet another powerful smartphone to its lineup, as the company revealed plans to introduce a dual-core next-gen Galaxy S at the Mobile World Congress next month. Head of Samsung's mobile business division Shin Jong-kyun announced that along with a dual-core processor, the new Galaxy S - dare we say "Galaxy S2" - will have a Super AMOLED plus screen with "enhanced density". Now, it's been a long time since the rumored specifications for the S2 emerged in July, but ...

    Just a day after we saw it pass through the Bluetooth SIG, Samsung's Stealth V seems to have been revealed as the Samsung Infuse 4G -- and since this is an AT&T-bound handset, it looks like AT&T is indeed following in T-Mobile's footsteps by classifying its HSPA+ 3.5G network as 4G. Semantics aside, this Galaxy S-branded device is going to be one of the hottest phones on the market when it arrives -- date: unknown, but we'd heard February -- as it sports a 1.2GHz Hummingbird CPU along with an HTC-killing 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, said to offer better contrast and outdoor ...
