Samsung brings 1st phone with AMOLED to AT&T

updated 12:00 am EDT, Mon March 30, 2009

Samsung Impression

AT&T tonight supported its phone launches with twomid-range Samsung offerings, including what it says is the first-ever US phone to use an AMOLED display. The Impression's 3.2-inch touchscreen uses the organic technology to improve its color accuracy and brightness compared to an LCD; it also adds haptic feedback to simulate physical button presses. A full, slide-out QWERTY keyboard makes it one of the few non-smartphone devices in the US to get such advanced controls. Samsung further gives the phone a 3-megapixel camera, 3G and a microSDHC slot that handles up to 16GB cards. The Impression is the first to ship of AT&T's CTIA launches and will be ready on April 7th for $200 on contract.

The Magnet, in turn, is positioned as one of the lowest-cost QWERTY candybar phones available; it will use a non-smartphone OS and should have just a basic (but unspecified) camera as well as 2G-only networking. AT&T is silent on most details, including launch dates, and says only that the Magnet will be available in coming weeks at an "affordable price."
