Samsung Focus S and Samsung Focus Flash announced alongside AT&T Windows Phone 7.5 Mango line up

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.

Samsung announcing new handsets on September 1st

HTC apparently isn’t the only handset manufacturer scheduled to unveil something on September 1st (the first day of the IFA convention in Berlin). Samsung has also launched a short video teasing campaign about the Samsung Unpacked event which is set to take place on this day. As you will see in the videos after the break the mysterious device is undoubtedly a phone but the OS is still a mystery (also the Bada and Android versions of the Samsung unpacked application are promoted at the very end). The waves and beach in the videos could also hint at the release of a new Samsung Wave / Bada phone too. Guessing is all we can do right now.

Another Samsung Windows Phone Mango device in the works: the GT-i8350

Samsung is apparently prepping another Windows Phone 7 device for this fall’s Mango launch but this time this one looks to be a lowered-end model based on its number: GT-i8350. As you already know the Omnia 7 is the GT-i8700 and based on Samsung naming convention the more powerful the hardware gets, the higher its model number is. Galaxy S = i9000, Galaxy S II = i9100 etc.. It’s highly probable that  the GT-i8350 will be using Qualcomm’s MSM7230 SoC like the rumored HTC Ignite and Prime.
