Samsung Haptic 8M launched as Korea’s first 8MP camera phone

Samsung has just introduced the first 8 Megapixel phone for the Korean market: Samsung Haptic 8M (model name: SCH-W740).

It’s a full-touch handset that we’ve seen before, in some leaked photos, and now it’s finally presented in an official way. Unfortunately, it looks like it will only be available in South Korea.  

The 8MP camera of Samsung SCH-W740 comes with “face tagging”, auto focus, smile shot and xenon flash, so it should allow users to take some pretty nice photos.

There’s also an English recognition function that can automatically translate a document after you take a picture of it.

Other than that, Samsung Haptic 8MP features

  • HSUPA connectivity (up to 5.7Mbps)
  • T-DMB
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • Business card scanner

Samsung Haptic 8M will soon be available from SK Telecom, for 900,000 KRW (about $660).
