5 new phones: Samsung F200 Music Phone, Samsung F310/ Bang&Olufsen Serenata, Samsung E590, C510L and T729 approved by FCC
Samsung F200 Music Phone was first spotted by GSM Arena during 3GSM Tradeshow in Barcelona this February. However no official announcement or even info on the specs of this phone was available at the time.
And it’s still the same. No official news or specs on Samsung SGH-F200. Except that it has now been approved by FCC and should be coming to U.S. pretty soon:
Samsung F310/Bang&Olufsen Serenata is another interesting and unannounced mobile phone model, which seems to be the result of joint venture between Korean cellphone giant and Danish High Tech Fashion powerhouse.
F310/Serenata, that can be seen on FCC site, is an oval shaped 1900GSM/WCDMA/EDGE flip phone with Bluetooth and will probably be sold through 2 separate channels. Traditional cellphone/retail channel as high end Samsung F310 Fashion Phone and through Bang&Olufssen retail outlets as B&O Serenata.
Samsung E590 is another Fashion Phone, which unlike most of the others, has been officially announced by Samsung. Just not for the U.S. Market yet.
Samsung E590 is a candybar shaped GSM 900/1800/1900, GPRS/EDGE phone was designed by Jasper Morrison. It features 3 mpx camera, 1.79″ 220×220 262K color display, FM Radio, MP3 player, Bluetooth 2.0 EDR, 70MB of internal memory and microSD card slot.
Samsung E590 has also been approved by FCC and should be on sale in the U.S. sometime later this year:
Another Samsung phone to pass through FCC approval is Samsung C510L. It’s a cheap GSM clamshell with FM Radio and VGA camera, which you should be able to get for $1 through most of your wireless carrier plans:
Samsung T729 is the last phone to pass through FCC yesterday. Here too, very few details, except that it’s a 850/1900 GSM/EDGE Phone with Bluetooth, is available. The looks and numbering scheme for Samsung T729 suggest that it may be upgrade to the popular Samsung T719 clamshell with Blackberry Connect and Sure Type keyboard:
It appears that Samsung will have quite a few new phones to offer for this summer/fall season in U.S.
