More Samsung phones at SWC
Not content with its more style-oriented devices, Samsung has announced a host of other phones coming in the near future. Among these is the F400, which like the Serenata is based on Bang & Olufsen sound technology in the form of two stereo speakers, concealed within a dual-sliding design. Onboard is a FM radio, a three-megapixel camera with autofocus, and a microSD slot. The F400 should be out in late March, at a cost of €370-390 ($537-566).
The i200 is in many respects a basic candybar phone, but comes with the unusual addition of Windows Mobile 6, along with 3G broadband. A microSD slot provides storage, and photos are shot with a two-megapixel sensor. The phone is due sometime this spring, at a price somewhere under €200 ($290).
Samsung has confirmed the existence of the G810, although features are currently unclear. It is expected to have built-in Wi-Fi, HSDPA and a GPS receiver, along with other high-end features such as a five-megapixel camera with 3x zoom and a macro mode.
The F490 is being updated with the W420, a model for South Korea with a two-megapixel camera and mobile TV through T-DMB. A Europe-only phone will be the P960, which tunes in its TV through DVB-H. Its only other major feature, at present, is a three-megapixel autofocus camera. It is unknown when or even if the P960 will see release in its current incarnation. [via Mobile-review]
