Samsung V9500 Introduced

Furthering its reputation for slim cellphones, Samsung today revealed the V9500, one of the company's thinnest clamshell designs to date. It measures only 11.9mm (0.46 inches) when closed thanks to its use of special materials: a shell made of aircraft-grade fiberglass keeps the phone thin without compromising its strength, Samsung says. Its 2.2-inch QVGA screen is also large for its class. A 2-megapixel camera is promised, as is Bluetooth and a microSD card slot to store music and videos. With support for CDMA and EVDO broadband, the Korean handset is likely to appear in North America in the near future in addition to its recent release in Korea. A larger photo is available after the jump.
