Samsung M8800





We're still waiting on the official word from Samsung about the M8800 we previewed a few days ago, and Samsung still haven't released any photographs of the new device.. although we believe that the mockup on the right is very close to the final design.

We do have pretty detailed specifications of the new device, and the bad news is that it doesn't have a WVGA display that we had hoped for, just a 3.2" 240 x 400 pixel touch-sensitive panel in 16 million colours similar to that in the Samsung Omnia.

We can confirm that the M8800 has an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and autofocus, it also reportedly has VGA resolution video capture and image stabilisation.

This is a 3.5G device with support for HSDPA high-speed data but no WiFi. The Samsung M8800 does appear to have a GPS receiver too, although the exact capabilities of this are not known. Other hardware features are microSD expandable memory, Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0 and an FM radio.

We can also tell you that the Samsung M8800 supports MP3, AAC, AAC+, e-AAC+, WMA, 3GP, ASF, WMV and MPEG4 audio and video formats, it comes with an email client, web browser, RSS reader and document viewer

The M8800 weighs 122 grams and measures 108 x 54 x 14mm (compare this with 112 x 57 x 13mm for the Omnia). The 1000 mAh battery provides up to 7 hours of talktime and 16 days standby time.

As sometimes happens with Samsung products, it will looks like it will be marketed under different names in different regions, possibly the "Samsung Bresson" in the UK, but also the "Samsung Pixon" in some other countries. The exact launch date is not known at present, but we think that full details should be announced in the next couple of weeks.
