New Samsung Lucido phone
Samsung UK on Friday announced the upcoming release of a new candybar handset, the Lucido. The name translates to "sleek" from Italian, and the slim, 0.46-inch (11.8mm) thick body is covered in brushed aluminum. The set's standout features include a 2.2-inch AMOLED screen that produces richer colors, an assisted GPS sensor that uses Google Maps, and 3G network support over HSPA for fast downloads and web browsing.
More common features include a media player, FM radio, up to 8GB of storage via an external memory card slot and a 5-megapixel camera that supplies autofocus, anti-blur, face detection and smile capture. The phone is due for an April release on various networks, although pricing is not yet known. [via T3]
