Samsung develops new slider smartphone

Samsung i620 phone

Samsung is said to be developing a new smartphone called the i620. Though nominally related to the i600, it is considerably different stylistically, since it is not only a slider but clad in metallic colors, and equipped with seamless frontside buttons. The direction pad, meanwhile, has been flattened out into a wheel. Features are otherwise very similar, such as HSDPA, Wi-Fi, and a VGA front camera; the only real upgrade is the rear camera, which has jumped from 1.3 to two megapixels. No regions or dates have been attached to the phone, but since it is merely a GSM tri-band unit, it will likely remain in Asia and Europe. [via Unwired View]
