Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash get snapped

Samsung’s new Windows Phone 7.5 phones have been snapped live and they do look pretty impressive. The first one, the Focus S is more like the Samsung Galaxy SII in terms of hardware. As reported by GSM Arena, it has a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen and an 8 megapixel camera. The only hardware difference from the SGSII is that this one features a physical button for the camera. The Focus S will run on a 1.4GHz processor and will have an inbuilt memory of 16GB or 32GB and 1GB of RAM but there will be no microSD card slot.
