AT&T has finally announced the launch and specifications of the Samsung Exhilarate after half a year of hiding the device from sniffers.
The US telecoms network said that the 4G LTE-enable Android handset will be available on AT&T stores to clarify where punters can grab the device. However, the rumored arrival of the Samsung Skyrocket HD, which was a modified version of the massively popular Galaxy S II lineup of devices, did not have as much luck after the network called it off.
The Samsung Exhilarate will come with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.2GHz dual-core Scorpion processor, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with 720p HD video recording, a 1.3-megapxiel front-facing camera for video calls, and the relatively older Android 2.3 Gingerbread version of Google’s mobile operating system out of the box.
The mid-range Android smartphone clearly will not live up to its “Exhilarate” alias for mobile tech savvy followers, but Samsung touts it to have very eco-friendly features, with 80 percent of its rear casing made up of recycled materials.
The Samsung Exhilarate is set to hit AT&T shelves by June 10 on a $50 two-year contract.
