Samsung W579 World Phone

Normally most concerned with its native Korea and the West, Samsung is introducing a world phone made for the often complex Chinese market. The combination of dual-band CDMA and tri-band GSM gives cellphone subscribers the ability to use networks in other countries without buying another handset. This clamshell design also caters to its Chinese target audience by including a 240x320 touchscreen and stylus to allow text messaging in the users' own tongues. A 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and built-in music playback are expected to complete the W579's feature set. No official release information has been listed, but Samsung promises to deliver the phone soon. A full photo is available after the jump courtesy of IT-168.
