AT&T debuts three new “4G” phones

AT&T just announced a slew of new Android devices, but there are three that stand out. That’s because they have the “4G” tag. Which isn’t really saying much, as all these devices are basically HSPA+ devices. That doesn’t take anything away from the devices themselves though. So here we go!

First up, the Samsung Infuse 4G:

This is a monster of a device! It’s part of the Galaxy line of phones, so it’ll have the TouchWiz UI.

Specifications:

  • Processor-1.2GHz single-core Hummingbird processor
  • Display-4.5″ Super Amoled Plus display
  • Camera- 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front facing camera.
  • OS- Android 2.2 (FroYo) (Hopefully will be updated to Gingerbread)

It definitely looks awesome on paper. The best part is, it’s only 9mm thick! Or thin. Brilliant!

Engadget has a hands on video which you should definitely check out.

Next in line, is the HTC Inspire 4G:

The Inspire 4G basically follows in line with the HTC Desire HD.

It has the same 4.3″ display, and runs the new Sense UI atop Android 2.2.

Specs:

  • Processor-Qualcomm® QSD8255, 1GHz Scorpion™
  • Display-4.3” inch WVGA
  • Networks-HSPA/UMTS Dual-band (850/1900) and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • Camera- 8-megapixel with auto focus and flash
  • Battery- 1230 mAh Li-ion
  • Memory- 768MB RAM, 4GB ROM
  • OS-Android™ 2.2 (Froyo) with HTC Sense™

Last, but definitely not the least, is Motorola‘s Atrix 4G. It just might be one Motorola phone that I want to buy.

It’s their first dual-core processor phone, it has 1GB  RAM, and Mindblowingly hi-res (for android devices) display at QHD. It also has a fingerprint scanner, which doubles up as the power button!

Specs:

  • Processor- Nvidia Tegra Dual Core
  • Display-4″ QHD (960 x 540)
  • Memory-1GB RAM, Upto 48GB memory
  • Camera-5MP rear facing, with Flash, VGA front facing camera
  • Battery- 1930 mAh
  • OS- Android 2.2

They also announced a bunch of accessories, which enable a whole lotta awesome features. It comes with the standard FroYo browser, along with a Firefox browser which supports Flash 10.1. It’s meant to be used in the Webtop mode, while docked. The multimedia dock has a  power connector, three USB ports, HDMI out and a Infrared Remote. The laptop dock has a 11.6-inch display, two USB ports, a chiclet keyboard, and a trackpad with multitouch.You can basically use the phone as a PC when connected to a Keyboard, Display and a mouse.

Check out more about the phone, on the AT&T product page.

Once again, Engadget has a hands on video of the phone, which you must see!
