Samsung Ultra 10.9 Slider
Samsung's cellphone division was today revealed to be working on a potentially record-setting handset. Titled the Ultra Edition 10.9, the phone should stand as the thinnest slider design available, measuring only 0.43 inches thick despite its two-layer body. Similar to the Ultra Edition 5.9 announced today, the 10.9 will still have features normally found only in much bulkier models. A 3.2-megapixel camera, 80MB of internal storage (with microSD expansion), and Bluetooth will be part of the core design; music and video playback are also staples of Samsung's new communicator.
An official release date has not been provided, but the phone should make its first public appearance at the 3GSM conference in Barcelona next month with a launch to follow soon after. Availability beyond Europe has not been determined. Click through for larger photography. [via Unwired View]
