What could be the rumored Samsung Hercules has just turned up at an event in Canada and gotten its first snapshot released for all to witness. This is the super-sized 4.5-inch Android 2.3 smartphone similar to what’s been released on AT&T called the Samsung Infuse 4G. Only, this one’s expected to be more powerful and will support faster data speeds.
The Samsung Hercules was first mentioned in May, when a T-Mobile roadmap leaked along with some specs for the giant handset. The Hercules is expected to sport a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with 480×800 resolution on a body that also has a rather thin profile. The guys at MobileSyrup, who got the snapshot, say the device is like a mix between a Galaxy S II, Nexus S, and Infuse.
Although sporting the same size screen and general aesthetics of the Infuse, the Hercules is also expected to sport a powerful Qualcomm 1.2Ghz dual-core processor and Category 24 HSDPA support for up to 42Mbps—a HSPA+ speed that’s superior to that of the Infuse.
