The Focus S continues the trend of manufacturers releasing a mildly updated version of a handset, and naming it xxx S. HTC started this trend with the Desire S and Incredible S, and Sony Ericsson continued the trend with the Xperia Arc S, and now Samsung is following on their footsteps.

The Focus S is among the slimmest WP7/WP7.5 Mango based phone around, with a slim waistline of 8.55mm.

The Focus S is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon (MSM8255T) processor and an Adreno 205 GPU, and packs 512MB of RAM. The original Super-AMOLED screen on the Focus has also been upgraded to a 4.3-inch Super-AMOLED Plus screen. The resolution of the camera at the back of the phone has been bumped to 8MP, and there is a 1.3MP camera in the front as well.

The press release from AT&T also states that the Focus S will be capable of 4G speeds, but does not mention anything whether it’s the so-called 4G (HSDPA+) network, or the real’ upcoming 4G LTE network from AT&T.

The Focus S will hit the States under the AT&T’s network, sometime in fall.

    needs a bigger battery, the current samsung focus has a horribly small one. They’ve gotta be 1700 at least.

    I recently went to Disneyland, and for the first time used current Samsung Focus all day at the park. Never once did I have problems with battery power, and I took alot of photos with it that day. My Casio camera conked out on battery power before the night was over, but Samsung worked like a dream, and I not only took photos, but deleted, shared, and edited while taking shots. Very impressive.
