Exemplifying the divide between Western and Asian cellphones, South Koreans will soon be able to buy the SCH-B750, Samsung's latest camcorder phone. One of the key features is the ability to actually control it like a dedicated camcorder: recording buttons are on the side, and the display twists horizontally as well as vertically, falling into the same position as a normal viewfinder. The image sensor meanwhile is rated at an unusually high three megapixels, and comes paired with an autofocus lens.
The phone also has an S-DMB broadcast tuner, and options for panoramas, night recording and business card recognition. It can play MOD, VOD and MP3 files, and uses a TV output for further recording and playback opportunities. Storage defaults to a microSD card. Unfortunately, no prices or release dates have been attached. [via AVING]
