It was just yesterday that we were wondering about the status of Samsung’s Focus S and Focus Flash Windows Phone handsets. First, Samsung finally set up product pages for the pair on its website, and then we received an invitation to a Windows Phone event that prominently featured imagery of the two phones. We still didn’t have anything specific like a release date, but the feeling was in the air that the new Focuses were about to drop imminently. Today, AT&T has finally given us what we were looking for, confirming launch dates for the phones as well as revealing their prices.
While the WP7 event isn’t scheduled to take place until November 7, the Focus S and Focus Flash will go up for sale one day earlier, on November 6. On-contract, the Focus S will cost just under $200, while the Focus Flash is the bargain model, going for just about $50.
As should be clear from those prices, the Focus S is the higher-end of the two phones, with a larger screen and higher-resolution main camera, but the Focus Flash doesn’t sound like it will be any sort of slouch, making its low price all the more attractive.
Both new Focus models are powered by 1.4GHz processors, feature front-facing cameras, and arrive running Mango.
