Samsung Preps 8MP, GPS, DivX, 16GB Smartphone

With the iPhone 3G now on the loose and opinion divided as to whether it is quite the upgrade we had all prayed for one manufacturer is keen to demonstrate all its shortcomings...

Unsurprisingly, it is Samsung who has picked up this batten and with the leaked 'i8510' it could have a very good case indeed. Let's break it down:

*S60 3rd Edition OS

*7.2Mbit HSDPA

*8 megapixel camera with autofocus and dual LED flash

*120 frames per second video recording in QVGA

*GPS

*WiFi

*Bluetooth 2.0

*FM tuner

*16GB onboard storage

*3.5mm headphone jack

*microSD expansion slot

*multimedia playback including DivX

*280 hours standby, six hours talk time

*Slim dimensions of 106.5 x 53.9 x 16.9mm

Oh yeah - this handset means business.

Of course its slider format arguably makes the i8510 more of a competitor for the still unreleased Nokia N96 and on these stats it looks a battle Samsung's latest is more than capable of winning - even if, naturally enough, the OS still requires some spit and polish at this stage.

Pricing? Availability? Don't be daft. We're still waiting for more proof this uber phone even exists - but if indeed it does, then the smartphone world is facing one heck of a shake up...

i wish the manufacturers would start to focus a little bit more on the lens quality and optical zoom into those phones, only then will i trow out all my others gadgets and just get that phone.

I have to confess - I'm tempted, but I'm inclinded to side a little with the guys who want a 640-pixel screen, rather than 320x240.





Sure, the 8MP optics might not be that great but in many other regards, this is iPhone 3G-matching (or beating) spec with what would surely be a vastly better camera. If you can agree with me that far then all that's left is operating system: can Samsung (or anyone) rival Apple for interface slickness and userbility.





Maybe Google's Android can do it (or be easily modified by others to)...
