Samsung B7610

As part of launching a suite of existing phones in its native Korea, Samsung on Monday launched the B7610. The handset is arguably its new flagship with a 3.5-inch, 800x480 AMOLED touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard underneath. It also gets a 5-megapixel camera, 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi and has a simplified front interface designed for finger input. Although just 1GB of storage is built-in, it has a microSDHC slot for 16GB or more of added space.

The phone is now believed to be labeled the Omnia Pro and currently runs Windows Mobile 6.1. Its performance is strong enough that an upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5 should be available after September, when the new Microsoft OS should be more widely available. Pricing isn't known, but the B7610 should at least reach Europe. Support for North American frequencies isn't known.
