First official photos of the Samsung Focus S

The still mysterious Samsung Focus S has finally shown its face courtesy of Microsoft today. The device’s full hardware specifications are still unknown same for it’s European variant that has yet to be announced. The whole design is definitely similar to the original Samsung Galaxy which looked kinda nice but definitely not amazing. on the other hand the Samsung Focus Flash looks identical to the European Samsung Omnia W. Anyway, let’s hope that Samsung get its act together and finally announces/ unveils something in the next few days. More picture after the break:

Samsung Focus S snapped in the Wild. Still no official pictures and full specifications

One has to wonder why AT&T jumped the gun and decided to announce the Samsung Focus S ans Samsung Focus Flash before both devices were ready to be unveiled by Samsung. As of right now we still don’t know much about the Focus S full hardware specification besides what AT&T talked about in its press release and the only pictures we have are the screen caps taken from the WPC surprise showing a few months ago and this new one above (the Storage amount is still a mystery, same for the Ram).

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.

Breaking news: Samsung is working on a new high end Windows Phone! After all I already talk / hint at this particular device back in May in my Windows Phone Mango preview and here right? …Well, apparently nobody paid attention or cared…. Anyway, the device will be the SGH-i937 in the US (the Focus is the i917 and the Galaxy S II is the i927) will feature a Super AMOLED Plus panel like the Galaxy S II (similar to how the Focus and Omnia 7 featured the same Super AMOLED panel as the Galaxy S) and is AT&T bound.
