The Samsung Focus 2 Brings LTE to WP7 Users
At this point when the words Windows Phone 7 come up, the go to reference would be a Lumia. Maybe the 900, maybe the 710, but Lumia is currently the backbone that is standing WP7. Today At&t and Samsung have uncovered a new variation of their popular Focus line with the Focus 2. The original Focus was one of the very first WP7 devices to hit the market and was shortly followed by the Focus S and Focus Flash. Today, the line gets a few spec bumps and an amazing data connection with some LTE flavors.
At&t and Samsung have hit the WP7 market again with the latest Focus model the Samsung Focus 2 LTE. The Samsung Focus S has become one of the defacto “solid” devices that run WP7, but can the Focus 2 live up to the standard? Probably, considering its details are not that removed, or improved from the later models. The Focus 2 is a new slate styled smart phone that uses a perfectly sized 4 inch Super AMOLED touch screen for user interaction. The screens resolution sports WVGA quality and measures in at a 480×800 pixels and displays 233 of them per inch. Internally the Focus 2 runs with a more than enough 1.4 Ghz single core processor that is backed by an internal graphics processor. Details on RAM and internal memory have yet to be confirmed. Around back in a seemingly Samsung standard, the flash, camera and speaker reside in a tidy line. The camera uses a 5 mega pixel sensor and sports features like, Panorama, Geo Tagging, and auto focus. It is also capable of recording HD video at a 720p resolution. The video camera also features continuous auto focus. A front facing camera is also available for all your video conferencing needs and measures in with a standard VGA quality or .3 mega pixels. The details of the new Focus 2’s specs, pretty much stop there. However, it should be pointed out that the new Focus 2 is running the latest in WP7 version, 7.5 aka, mango and will cost new contract signees only $50 bucks! The Focus 2 is slated for a May 20th release date.
