Even if Samsung just caused a huge commotion with its most recent Android smartphone, the Galaxy S3, it is obviously not giving up its line of Windows Phone. In fact, the Samsung Focus 2 is competitively priced to grab some sales from HTC and Nokia. The recently unveiled Samsung Focus 2 is the next handset in the smartphone series consisting of the original Focus, Focus S and Focus Flash. It is only available in one color which is white.
The Focus 2 is Samsung's first Windows Phone that features LTE. AT&T has two other Windows phone with LTE capabilities namely the Titan 2 of HTC and the Lumia 900 of Nokia which was both released last April.
However, not like the $100 Lumia 900, the Titan 2 costs $200 and the Focus 2 is even more affordable for only $50 under a contract of two years. Because of the affordability of the Focus 2, the handset can attract users who want to transition from feature to smart phones.
The specs of the Focus 2 is almost at the same level as other thin smart phones as it is only 10.98 in thickness and 4.3 ounces in weight. It can even be compared to the Galaxy S3 which weighs 4.7 ounces with a thickness of 8.6 mm.
The Samsung Focus 2 has a Super AMOLED display screen with a resolution of 400 x 800 pixels and a size of 4 inches. It consists of 1750 mAH battery, 1.4 GHz one-core processor and 8 GB memory. Its 5 MP camera can capture 720p HD videos and its front facing VGA camera allows video chat.
The Focus 2 windows phone of the Korean electronics giant runs on Windows 7.5 Mango and will be exclusively offered by AT&T beginning the 20th of May.
