Haven’t seen any official PR yet, but Russian site mobile.mail.ru says that 8 megapixel Samsung M8800 PIxon (codenamed Bresson) full touchscreen handset has been announced.
They’ve already got time to play with it and have and interesting hands-on review to prove it.
Samsung M8800 Bresson is a new 8 megapixel full touchscreen feature phone, that will probably replace current feature/touch flagship – Samsung F490 and looks like a formidable challenger to LG KC910 Renoir.
Samsung Bresson M8800 specs include:
- Quad band GSM, tri-band HSDPA
- Qualcomm MSM6281 chipset
- Native Samsung OS
- 3.2″ 240x400px TFT Display
- 8 megapixel camera (3264×2448) with VGA video recording at 30 fps
- built-im GPS sensor used for photo geotagging only
- FM Radio with RDS
- Built-in accelerometer
- 100MB of user memory
- microSD card slot
While Samsung M8800 Bresson looks like a really cool cameraphone, it misses a couple of things that, I think, any high end handset should have these days – Wi-Fi connectivity and full fledged GPS Navigation. It seems to have built-in GPS sensor, but it is used only for geotagging photos, not navigation. At least that’s what early reviewers had to say.
The price of Samsung M8800 Bresson should be somewhere around 550 EUR when it starts shipping next month.
Update: Looks like this new handset is getting really official. Here’s Samsung M8800 video promo on YouTube:
