AT&T announces the thinnest Android device, the Samsung Infuse 4G

Today AT&T announced the Samsung Infuse 4G, the thinnest Android device with one of the largest screens. The Infuse 4G features similar specs as the Galaxy S, but it sports a 4.5 inch display and a 1.2 GHz Hummingbird processor.

Full specs are forthcoming, but we learned the Infuse 4G measures just 9 mm thin, has dual-cameras (8 MP back, 1.2 MP front), and support for AT&T’s HPSA+ network.

Look for the Infuse 4G to hit AT&T stores by Q2 2011.

We are headed to Samsung’s CES event later today, so check back for a hands-on report.

From AT&T: The Samsung Infuse 4G will be the thinnest Android device and feature the largest screen — at 4.5 inches — in AT&T’s smartphone lineup.  The device delivers a brilliant display using Samsung’s next-generation Super AMOLEDâ„¢ Plus technology which features 50% more sub-pixels for better contrast and outdoor readability. The Infuse will be powered by a 1.2 GHz application processor and run the Android 2.2 platform. This device is slated for launch in the second quarter of 2011, only for AT&T customers.
