Photos, specs of Samsung Armani phone outed
Images and specs of the Samsung Armani W8200 have finally been spotted online, some five months after it was first promised. What has been gleaned is that the device sports a 3.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen along with a slide-out hardware keypad. The device will support high-speed HSDPA data networks.
Otherwise, there is a DMB TV tuner, Bluetooth and a 5-megapixel camera. Storage will be expandable through a microSD memory card slot, but it's unknown how much internal memory is retained. Unlike what was previously expected, however, it appears the device won't ship with Windows Mobile but rather a proprietary Samsung OS.
Despite the leak, shipping dates or pricing for the Samsung Armani handset are unknown. Judging from the source of the images, it's likely the device will launch in Korea first. [via Samsung HD Blog]
