Sanyo Katana Eclipse pics
Even though it has not been formally announced by any company, Sanyo has posted images of a new Katana phone, the Katana Eclipse (a.k.a. 6750). The photos are high-resolution files in Sanyo's official image bank, and depict a new clamshell device with markings for American carrier Sprint. Significant aesthetics changes are present over previous Katana devices; immediately obvious are sleeker, rounded edges, the lack of a raised center column, and redesigned internal and external buttons.
The outside buttons now also include music controls, for playing, pausing and skipping tracks. Under the casing the phone is believed to have Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and some form of GPS support. A release is rumored to be due by the end of the month.
