Samsung unveils G800 phone with 5 megapixels, 3X zoom

Samsung G800

Samsung Mobile today launched what it says is a genuinely unique offering in media phones. The previously leaked G800 slider includes a 5-megapixel camera sensor like the N95 and other high-end phones but teams this with a genuine 3X optical zoom lens. Combined with xenon flash and software features like face detection, the hardware allows users to properly focus on subjects in a photo without the pixelated effects that stem from the digital zoom found on nearly every other phone, the company says.

The handset provides on-device video editing and connects to the Internet over HSPA, which delivers the added speed needed to upload videos as well as to share them. MicroSD storage and Bluetooth are also known to be standard on the G800. Samsung plans to ship the phone to Europe in November with prices varying by country. A North American release is not expected given the phone's current lack of 850MHz support for AT&T, Rogers, and T-Mobile.
