Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash get official launch

Samsung has taken the novel step of launching two new handsets without actually releasing shots of them. So we can talk about the Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash, but we can't show you what you'll see in your hand. Look out for that in the coming days or weeks.

They may or may not look like the Omnia 7 or possibly a cross between that and the Galaxy S II. Although we did spot a Galaxy S II-like phone running Windows Phone 7 a couple of months back, backing up a previous rumour about such a smartphone being in the works. That could be the Focus S just launched. Time will tell.

But the Focus S has definitely launched, a super-slim phone (just 8.55mm thin) with a Super AMOLED 4.3-inch screen, 1.4GHz processor, an eight-megapixel camera on the rear and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front for your networking. Of course, that's only half the story, with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango as the operating system. More on that here.

The Samsung Focus Flash is essentially more of the same – a slightly scaled-down version of the handset. The same 1.4GHz chip, but that Super AMOLED screen is just 3.7-inch, while the camera is a five-megapixel number.

The press is geared towards a US launch, but there's no reason why one or both of these can't make it across the Atlantic for a UK launch. Talking of launches, that's being pitched as anytime in the next few months, when the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango party will be in full swing. Indeed, it should be in full swing by the end of this week.
