CES 2011: Samsung unveils world’s slimmest Android phone

Samsung has announced that it will be bringing to market what it claims is the world’s slimmest Android smartphone yet, the Infuse 4G, measuring just 9mm in thickness.

The slender smartie, confirmed only for AT&T stateside for now, houses a ginormous 4.5-inch Super AMOLED ‘Plus’ panel, and crams in twice as many pixels as the Galaxy S and allows for an even more vibrant display outdoors.

It also sports a speedy 1.2GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor to keep things ticking over smoothly. Although the handset will launch with Android 2.2 (Froyo) onboard, an upgrade to Gingerbread will shortly follow to take full advantage of the eight-megapixel snapper, with 720p HD video recording credentials as well as video-calling support for the1.3-megapixel front-facing VGA.

Of course, as the name suggests, the Infuse will be also capable of running on the next-generation mobile network. Unfortunately the UK has yet to adopt 4G in the same scale as the US so it’s not certain whether the handset will be making its way to these shores just yet. But we can at least look forward to a rebranded model, sans the 4G equipment.

Stay tuned as we find out more about Samsung’s plans in the coming days.
