Samsung is targeting so-called “Active Seniors” with its newest handset, the SCH-W690, or simply, the Anycall Origin. And while Samsung didn’t make it entirely clear what exactly Active Seniors were, well, I think the terms “active” and “senior” in there more than sum it up.
One of this new handset’s key features is its 2.6-inch AM-OLED screen, giving it great readability. There’s a front-facing camera that can presumably be used for video calls as well. Besides which, there’s also a 2-megapixel camera on board, with FM radio, GPS, 8GB of internal memory.
While this simple-looking mobile phone looks, um, simple so far, it’s features actually go a lot further than they first seem.
For example, its 2-megapixel camera is said to have a smile-shutter feature that makes it automatically capture photos of subjects when they smile. Plus, it’s equipped with a bunch of health-related features that many “active seniors” will surely love.
Pricing and availability of this phone has not yet been specified.
