Xenium X530 is the latest flip phone to bear the Philips name – although it’s actually manufactured by a Chinese company that bought the mobile division of Philips Electronics.
Since it’s from the Xenium series, the X530 comes with a long-lasting battery capable of providing up to 8 hours of talk-time or up to 850 hours of stand-by time.
The rest of its specs are pretty much on the entry-level side, but at least the phone looks good, both when closed and when flipped.
The full spec-list of Philips Xenium X530 includes:
- Tri-band GSM/EDGE connectivity (900/1800/1900 MHz)
- 2.2 inch internal TFT display with 240 x 320 pixels and 262K colors
- 1 inch OLED external display
- Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
- Music player
- FM radio with RDS
- 2MP camera
- NXP 5210 chipset
- 99.1 x 47.1 x 18 millimeters
The handset was recently approved by the FCC, but it will probably be commercialized only in Asia and Europe. No word yet on pricing.
