Samsung’s Mobile World Congress new phone line-up is getting even more interesting.

We’ve already heard the rumors about upcoming Samsung i900 Windows Mobile (or not) handset. Some info about it’s Nokia N95 competitor – Samsung G810 Symbian smartphone found it’s way to the net too.

Today, through Akihabara, we get the official news about the new Samsung flagship handset for 2008, a really interesting feature phone – Samsung Soul.

Samsung’s “Soul” name comes from the abbreviation of the “Spirit of Ultra” and marks the “completion of it’s exclusive “Ultra Edition”. (Does that mean that there won’t be any more Ultra Edition phones?)

And it surely looks good:


For the phone control and navigation, Samsung Soul features “Magical Touch” DaCP pad, which is basically a small 1.2″ interactive OLED touchscreen (first introduced in Samsung E950) , which changes it’s controls according to the phone function.
