Samsung i550 GPS phone

Previously the subject of informed speculation, Samsung has now confirmed the existence of the i550 GPS phone. Aside from a built-in GPS receiver, its main highlight is likely to be its 3.2-megapixel camera, which is equipped with both flash and autofocus. The phone is also capable of EDGE and UMTS/HSDPA broadband, and connects locally via Bluetooth 2.0 or a USB 2.0 cable.

Music is another important focus, as the phone has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as a built-in FM tuner. Digital music should be storable in 150MB of internal memory, which can be augmented by microSD cards. The i550 is expected to ship in November; a North American release is unlikely however, as the phone's broadband operates in the wrong frequency. [via Unwired View]
