Samsung’s 4.5” Infuse 4G smartphone hits the FCC on its way to AT&T
Samsung and AT&T unveiled the Infuse 4G at CES this year. The ultra-thin Android smartphone features a spacious 4.5” screen, 8MP camera and a single core 1.2GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor.
On Friday, the Infuse 4G made an appearance on the FCC as the SGH-i997. FCC filings for the Infuse 4G show support for GSM 850 and 1900 frequencies, as well as WCDMA bands II and V. Those bands correspond to AT&T’s service in the US, which also suggests that T-Mobile won’t get their hands on the device…at least for now. Despite its 4G moniker, FCC reports make no mention of HSPA+ capabilities on the Infuse 4G. That suits us just fine though – we’re not eager to use AT&T’s so-called 4G services, especially given the upload issues that Atrix 4G users have reported. FCC test reports also show dual band 802.11 b/g/n support and Bluetooth.
No word on a release date for the Infuse 4G, but after Friday’s FCC approval we expect to see the device soon.
