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.

     wow makes me want to not get the sensation now

    Sounds good but I’m not really a big fan of samsung. But would still like to see where this goes. And the Hercules name does sound familiar as a Samsung device for T-Mobile in the past

      Thats what I’m saying. This IS the GS2 for t-mobile remember the Vibrant was a remake but still a galaxy S variant. I willing to bet the case is the same for here except we don’t get less we get more. And I imagine samsung went with Qualcomm over their own because their own chip can’t support more than 21mbps and t-mobile wanted to get 42mbps out this year. This is it. 

      • Anonymous

         From what I’ve seen the chip does top out at 21.  +1 for Qualcomm right now.

    HOLY MOLY!

     Thats a nice phone.. 4.5″ display, dual core, 42mbps hspa+(verizon lte speeds), 1gb ram, dual core, 1080p recording, etc.. and based on T-mo’s and ATT’s new policy of 18 mths of android upgrades, that means it will see many upgrades, clearing the Samsung name issue.

    Wow! And do they mean over 350 with a contract..!?

  • Hdj216

     this phone is unnecessary, why would you put a dual core process to your head. You might as well put your laptop to the side of your head and talk through it. When will we look at the health issues of all these high end dual core process phone. You can brag that your phone might be the fastest in the world but you will be the fastest to get a brain tumor.

    • michael

       Uhh.. I’m confused. How does a dual core processor cause brain tumors..? Thats kinda funny, go learn what the terms mean.. a “dual core process phone”? whats that? Wow

       If you’re afraid of brain cancer, don’t use cell phones at all. stick to home phones.

      The whole “cell phones cause brain cancer” thing has been debunked. Those experiments used high-power radio waves over a short period of time to simulate low-power waves over a long period of time and it just doesn’t work that way. Also, the processor has absolutely nothing to do with the phone’s radiation levels.

        assistant (PDA) use to DNA damage, sperm death, and brain damage
        including early-onset dementia. These findings regularly make big news
        in the international press, but are by and large played down in U.S.
        media.

      Smh… Just because it has a dual-core doesn’t automatically mean its going to be running at full capacity  24/7 to where it would overheat. they run at low mhz’s like 300 or 500 on average unless you actually set your device to run at a high mhz for more than an hour which is just dumb. 

      • Hdj216

        Among the research cited in the study was a recent study by a Swedish
        team of scientists that found a 420 percent higher risk of brain cancer
        among people who had started using cellular or cordless phones as
        teenagers. Older analog phones, which are now mostly off the market, had
        been found to increase cancer risk by 700 percent. You really think that the government will not lie to you about cell phones when they lie about everything else over and over again.

      Why? It makes actual sense if you read the thing that chipset supports 42mbps HSPA+ and Samsungs only does 21mbps for the moment. It would seem like t-mobile’s choice just like when they left out the ffc in the Vibrant in exchange for an extra 8mb’s over the competition.

    There is always gonna be something better around the corner. I am getting the Sensation because I dont like the toy like feel of the Samsung phones, plus I have always been a fan of HTC. If you want your device to do its job and look good, it most likely wont be a Samsung device IMO. If all you want is to compare specs with ur friends, then plan on upgrading at least every six months or being behind the pack.

        Sorry but I don’t think the sensation will be the best Android phone come June 8, that tittle will still be held by the Galaxy SII. At lease the European and Asian version. I can’t speak for the US version of the SGSII since the carrier’s might rape the phone with stupid bloatware (to slow it down) and redesign.

        The sensation and EVO 3D will however be the second best phones for the next few months after they are released. I am counting on Google and the Nexus 3 to put all other phones to shame come late summer. LOL. One can dream right?

    “The Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 or the processor that is happily running in HP’s new tablet, has now finally and officially announced by the company.

    This dual-core (clocked at 1.2GHz in Touchpad) comes paired up with Adreno 220 GPU and features support for Stereoscopic 3D (S3D), 1080p 30fps HD video capture and playback, console-quality gaming and full web browsing including the support for Adobe Flash 10.

    According to Qualcomm, the newest member of the Snapdragon family includes two asynchronous processor cores, an integrated Adreno 220 GPU with twice the processing power of its predecessor, support for up to a 16 Megapixel camera, and can capture and display HD 1080p stereoscopic video or 8 Megapixel stereoscopic still images to an autostereoscopic panel or a 3DTV (via HDMI).

    Something that we haven’t seen yesterday is the Armageddon Squadron II, an arcade flight simulation game made by Polarbit, which is apparently optimized for HP Touchpad. According to Qualcomm’s press release, this game features dynamic lightning and shading with enhanced motion blur, all thanks to that Adreno 220 GPU.

    Considering these quite an impressive specs, it is no wonder that HP’s WebOS based Touchpad is working well with multi-tasking and even might have impressive GPU power under the hood as well.”

        You are right about that. It’s the state of the smartphone world. A new superphone is born every 3 to 4 months thanks to Android and it’s OEM’s. Good for us geeks though.

    I get so tired of the whole 42mbps HSPA+ radio crap. These phones won’t even get 14 mbps so why is the possibility of an imaginary cap a selling feature? Hell most people will even get the 7.2mbps that non HSPA+ compatible radios can exceed. I’m more interested in tangible features.

    • Itmustbejj

      *will never. That will teach me to rage post.

    • michael

      A 14.4mbps phone will see a peak of about 12mbps because of multiple network users, not being 2 inches from the tower, etc. its possible to reach 14.4mbps but it’s not probable. Its theoretical. 21 might see 14-15 as a peak.

      42mbps on a loaded network is impressive though. 20-25mbps average. Not peak. Its about average, not theoretical.

  • http://profiles.google.com/peacock73 Anthony Peacock

    Its not the Infuse. The only thing it has in common with that phone is the screen. Everything else is the SII in fact its the SII mkII because it has the NFC support that Samsung announced would be coming to the SII in June/July.

    As far as it being outdated by release I have serious doubts that the new Kal-El proc will be in any device prior to the end of the year holiday season.

    Its always a fine line to walk with tech. There is always something new coming down the pipe and you can wait forever for it.

    I am not sure if this will mean I wont buy a Sensation – but it sure as heck gives me pause. The ability to switch between AT&T and Tmobile frequencies alone means this phone is far more useful to me as a world traveler.

    Whoa – who let the dogs out?! lol  This sounds like it will be a beast of a phone, WTG T-Mo!  =o)  

    That being said, I honestly don’t think that this is T-Mo’s version of the SGS2 – but rather it’s T-Mo’s version of AT&T’s Infuse.  Maybe T-Mo passed on the SGS2 for this, instead…?  OR…If I am wrong, and this is T-Mo’s version of the SGS2 – then this would explain, as to why T-Mo wasn’t listed with the accessories for the SGS2, as the other 3 carriers were yesterday.  Since this will obviously be bigger than the other carriers versions of the SGS2.Also, if this T-Mo’s version of the SGS2 – then we’re getting the “Pro” version this time around, as Sprint did with the Epic, with the original SGS.

    No matter either way, glad to see T-Mo really stepping it up this year!  It’s almost like; “what acquisition”? One thing is for sure, if the acquisition does happen, then I’d say T-Mo is going out with a BANG!

    P.S. I’ll believe this has quadbands when I see it – can anyone say; G2X?

    • Anonymous

       If the specs that leaked out are correct, this phone shouldn’t be considered a SGS2. As far as I know all of the SGS phones were pretty much identical on the inside and could be developed for concurrently for the most part.  The processor listed for the Hercules is the same Qualcomm dual-core that is used in the Sensation 4G.

      It’s very strange that Samsung is using a processor from an outside company.  Only time will tell if this is a one-off design for T-Mo or a trend.  I would bet on the former, though.

          I guess it could very well be our version of the GS2, as I didn’t know that the Infuse was considered a GS phone. So many phones, and so little time to keep up with the latest, before a new phone comes out – who can keep track!? lol 

        • Anonymous

          The size of the screen isn’t the issue. Not all of the Galaxy S phones use the same size screen, and all of the screens are the same resolution anyway so it makes no difference what size they are functionally.

          The problem is that the Hercules uses a different processor/GPU. If you look at apps in the marketplace, they usually only say compatible (or not) with Galaxy S phones and don’t list the individual models. They are all the same phone just with different bodies tacked on. They perform and behave basically identically. This won’t be true of the Galaxy S II and the Hercules; the Hercules will have to be developed, benchmarked, tested, debugged separately from the Galaxy S II because it is based on a different chipset.

          If Samsung used the Galaxy S II moniker for the Hercules, they could run into technical issues and complaints. I can imagine users trying to run applications that are listed as working on the Galaxy S II and then complaining when they don’t work on the Hercules; compatibility won’t be essentially guaranteed anymore.

          There may be 4.5″ Galaxy S phones in the works, but to be called that it will have to use the Exynos processor.

          What I don’t understand is why the Galaxy S II moniker is so important to people. It’s just a silly brand name.

        From what I am reading, the reason for a different processor chip, is because Samsung’s doesn’t support HSPA+ 42 yet, only 21. Looking forward to seeing this phone when it comes out, and to see if these early specs hold true, as they could change.

    smh new andorid phone every 3 days I see. 

    • Fam

      Man you ain’t lying the way I see it they should make a superphone and stick with it by promoting it and giving it all the updates they can to that one specific phone.

        Thats what Android needs to start doing with all there phones not just the nexus phones!

        • Aerofanbig

           Thats what Android needs to start doing? You do realize Android is an operating system, its not a phone manufacturer lol Android isn’t eve a company, its software made my Google. Other companies produce phones that run on Android, such as HTC, Motorola, Samsung, LG, Huawei and others. Your beef is with them constantly coming out with new models. 

          And if each company made ONE super phone and stuck with it, know what happens? Same people on this board bitch and moan about the lack of development and how their 2 week old phone has “last year features”. There is no winning with tech geeks, so, we deal with bigger, better, faster, newer phones every other week

           unless your Apple and make the IPhone, which is basically what @Fam said. But they suffer from what you say also. Haven’t seen any innovation from them since 3G.

      No mam samsung is the solution. When you are ready for greatness swap that skirt of yours for a set of pants and give in to what is the greatest of androids.

      • Respawn

        It’s a good solution for those who want a P.O.S. Phone with a crap update schedule. I’ll keep my skirt, thanks.

    I’d rather get the HTC Sensation if it’s going to sport a processor using the same GPU 220.
