Samsung G800 Enroute

Samsung is developing an even more advanced camera-focused phone than its recent G600, according to a forum moderator. The G800 would share the same 5-megapixel sensor as its lesser cousin but would include a sliding cover that reveals a lens with a 5.6-17.4mm autofocus range, providing the real-world zoom often missing from cellphone cameras. Flash may also be upgraded from LED to a bright Xenon to illuminate more distant subjects. Internet access may also be upgraded to HSDPA to add bandwidth for the front video calling camera.

Most other features of the G800 remain unclear due to its early development state, including whether it will use Nokia's Symbian Series 40 or 60 interface and whether the design hides a sliding numberpad or relies solely on its directional pad or a touchscreen for input. The device is said to be early in its development process and isn't scheduled to appear until early 2008, when it will likely be released primarily with Europe in mind.
