Samsung Trace and U540

Two new Samsung phones are destined to arrive at US providers Alltel and Verizon, according to a tip received by Phone Arena. Though details remain scarce, the R510 (pictured, right) is likely a CDMA-based equivalent of the T-Mobile Trace and is due to arrive soon for Alltel's network in blue instead of the silver of its GSM rival. Existing technology such as the 1.3-megapixel camera is expected to remain, though the phone will use EVDO instead of EDGE for its mobile Internet access.

Simultaneously, the Korea-based company is planning to deliver the U540 (left), an update to the U520 already in service at Alltel. The clamshell will gain its own dedicated song controls on the outer surface as well as A2DP support for transmitting its music to Bluetooth speakers. It too should keep its 1.3-megapixel camera. Neither the U540 nor the R510 have received confirmed launch information but will both be ready soon.
