Samsung Hercules Is T-Mobile’s Version Of Infuse 4G?

The boys over at Thisismynext.com are running quite the scoop with codename “Samsung Hercules.” With a possible arrival date of August this one has some time to mature but the Thisismynext crew has quite the spec breakdown:

  • 4.5″ 480 x 800 Super AMOLED Plus display
  • Android 2.3
  • NFC Support
  • 42Mbps HSPA+ capable (category 24 HSDPA and category 6 HSUPA)
  • AWS plus 850/1900 MHz…they claim support for AT&T’s 4G will be here if the merger succeeds which interesting considering this phone is scheduled for August and the deal won’t close till next year?
  • Preliminary measurements of 5.16 x 2.76 x 0.37 inches, resembles the AT&T Infuse 4G
  • 16GB internal ROM, 1GB internal RAM, expandable microSD memory up to 32GB
  • Qualcomm 1.2GHz dual-core APQ8060 processor??
  • 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video capture and front facing camera for video chat
  • Micro USB transfer for HDMI

These are certainly some impressive specs and if they come to fruition will make for quite the beastly phone. This might be why Thisismynext claims this phone is tagged for the “over $350″ price category. Let’s see how this one develops.

    Damn it, now I have to get the Sensation, then get this.

    Since Tmobile USA is not getting the Samsung GS2 anytime soon, then hopefully this will take its place in the meantime.  Hopefully Humm has decided a high-end mobile might be good for some Tmobile USA peeps.
    I get the feeling that Humm feels most Tmobile USA customers are worth ‘just a notch’ above simply owning a prepaid mobile.

    August is way too long for me to wait to upgrade from my crappy MT3G.  I will be very disappointed in TMO does not get the SGSII when the other three do.

     This would actually be pretty awesome, I saw the Infuse 4G on Sunday and walked away very impressed with the build and look of the phone.  I was genuinely surprised that I liked the 4.5″ screen.  I guess the 4.3″ HD7 has primed me for it, but suddenly the Galaxy S 4G is starting to look as inadequate in screen size as my iPhone 4 already is…

    I recently played with the Infuse and can honestly say I was impressed.  I’m not sure how it lines up spec-wise with the Galaxy S2 but HSPA+ 42Mbps is a nice start.  Wi-Fi Direct would be exceptional since I’m sick of Bluetooth.  This thing is freakin’ huge… it has its own zip code!

     Does this thing have a led notification………

    Sounds interesting…. not sure about Qualcomm proc or that big of a screen.  I think SGSII would be a better deal in my book.

    Hmmm, this is making me think twice about the Sensation.  Okay thought about it again and I still want the Sensation.  This phone does some  beastly specs though.

    @David:disqus  – Heracles is the Greek demogid.  Hercules is the ROMAN interpretation.  You are going to be doing these news stories for the next year… Might as well tell you know.  :)

        i agree with you but htc is in no way shape or form worse in support. go ask behold II users, people who arent tech savvy to update their vibrant 3g to 2.2 and galaxy s 4g users can probably forget about getting 2.3 in civilized manner. HTC is still #1.

  • Poesia-5

    animal el samsung infuse 4g tiene procesador de 1.2 sencillo, nada de dual core bestia.  eso es el samsung galaxy 2

  • Poesia-5

    512 ram,  1.2 procesor, hasta 21 mbpts hspa+,   las descripciones aqui son las del galaxy 2, a la verdad que esto lo escribio una bestia.  tan facil que es buscar y orientarse…

    Awesome.  Love the 1080p video camera, as well as the fast processor speed.  We are now in August and I have not heard much about the release.  Let’s cross our fingers for September…
