Samsung Illusion Announced

Posted by Admin Monday, November 28, 2011

Verizon has announced a new mid-range Android smartphone.  Called the Samsung Illusion, the handset boasts modest but delectable specs that are bound to attract a good chunk of the current Android crowd.

We have no idea what's up with the "Illusion" name since nothing about this device screams particularly deceptive or tricky.   Or maybe there is and we just don't notice it.  Dun-dun-dun…
Details of the Samsung Illusion include a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display (800 x 480 resolution), a 3.0 megapixel camera module, aGPS, 3G with HSPA, WiFi (with mobile hotspot capability), Bluetooth 3.0 and microSD card expansion (up to 32GB).  Processor is a single-core 1GHz Hummingbird.
The styling is identifiably Samsung, with its rounded corners and familiar face design.  It uses a bunch of environment-friendly materials, too, although the green angle appears to be downplayed in the marketing.  Android 2.3 runs at the helm, boasting all the usual favors like Google Mobile Services, corporate email support and robust messaging.
From today through the 28th, the Samsung Illusion will be available free on contract from Verizon Wireless' website.  It won't hit physical Verizon stores until 2012, so you'll have to order online to get it.  After the 28th, price bumps back up to $79.99.
