Samsung G810 at 3GSM?
A new, high-end Samsung smartphone will be announced at this month's 3GSM conference in Barcelona, a Czech website claims. The phone would be the G810, a successor to the G800, which is currently available in Europe but is not yet in North America. Like the 800, the 810 is a slider with a full-featured five-megapixel camera -- it not only features 3x optical zoom and autofocus, but a macro mode, face recognition and anti-shake technology. It will continue to have HSDPA broadband, as well as a microSD slot and Bluetooth, specifically Bluetooth 2.0.
The 810 appears to differ most cosmetically, with a black housing, a larger directional pad and rearranged button placement. It is also said, however that the phone has built-in GPS navigation, which should increase its appeal to the high-end market. Other features include 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, a micro-USB connector, and 150MB of internal storage. Pricing is expected to be €580 ($861), but no release dates or countries are known. [via Unwired View]
