AT&T has announced the Samsung Focus 2, the first Windows Phone with support for 4G LTE to come from Samsung.

The Focus 2 is not a high-end smartphone like the Focus S from last year, but it is closer to the Focus Flash, which was an entry-level Windows Phone device. The Focus 2 features a 4-inch, WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) Super AMOLED(INFO) display and runs Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango." As such, it offers all of the features one would expect from a Windows Phone smartphone,including Microsoft Office and SkyDrive integration - as well as Microsoft's slickly simple Metro user interface styling. Under the hood it has a 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor with 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Inside is a 1750mAh battery.

The new Focus 2 features a 5 megapixel main camera that can record 720p HD video, and also comes equipped with a VGA-resolution forward-facing camera for self portraits and Skype video chatting. The mid-range Samsung Focus 2 measures a reasonable 10.98mm (.4in) thick and weighs 122g (4.3oz).

AT&T will offer the Samsung Focus 2 in white on May 20 for $49.99 with a new two-year contract.
