The time has finally come! Samsung has just announced its new Windows Phone 7.5 Mango handsets today alongside AT&T. The first one is the high-end Samsung Focus S (SGH-i937) which Features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.4GHz MSM8255 processor, 4G-capable speeds and a thin profile at 8.55 millimeters. It also includes front facing 1.3-megapixel and a rear facing 8-megapixel cameras. There’s also the Samsung Focus Flash which seems to be the I8350 and has the same MSM8255 clocked at 1.4 GHZ but a smaller 3.7″ Super AMOLED screen and 5MP camera and a Front facing camera.
AT&T is also going to offer the HTC Titan alongside all the other first generation Windows Phone 7 handsets already on the market (see my HTC Titan hands on preview here). I will update this post once we have the first official pictures/renders of theses new phones. Hopefully the European version of the Focus S is going to look better than the US (similar to the Focus VS Omnia 7).. So stay tuned.
