Samsung X520 Phone

Although Samsung's most recent efforts emphasize premium designs such as the 10-megapixel B600, the company is preparing to bring its aesthetic to less expensive handsets, according to Slashphone. The upcoming X520 will bring the thin and narrow profiles of high-end models to a more affordable level. While specifications are anticipated as modest with an 0.3-megapixel camera, FM radio, and MP3 ringtone support as the phone's primary features, its signature two-tone design is widely expected to challenge the normally conservative design of other budget phones. Samsung is gearing the X520's as yet unspecified pricing towards prepaid cellular carriers such as Virgin Mobile and will release the phone before Christmas this year. Complete photos can be found after the jump.
