Four new handsets with a distinct audiophile flavor appeared on the Samsung website today. The sliders Samsung S6700 and Samsung C5510 offer decent mid-range functionality, while the music-oriented duo Samsung M2510 and Samsung M2310 are targeted at music lovers on a tighter budget.
Easily, the most interesting of the bunch Samsung S6700 offers quad-band GSM and dual-band UMTS (with HSDPA 3.6Mbps) support. It packs a 2.4" QVGA LCD display, capable of showing up to 16 million colors. There's also a 3 megapixel autofocus camera on board, complemented by a dual LED flash.
Samsung S6700 has 120MB of internal memory, expandable by up to 16GB through the microSD card slot. It other noteworthy features are built-in GPS receiver, Bluetooth and USB.
The other mid-range offering, Samsung C5510 sports a 2.2" 16M color LCD display of QVGA resolution. Quad-band GSM support and dual-band UMTS, make it capable of worldwide roaming (although the 3G speeds won't be available everywhere).
The camera onboard the Samsung C5510 has 2 megapixel resolution and sadly no autofocus. Bluetooth v2.1, USB v2.0 and a microSD card slot with support for up to 16GB memory cards complete the specs list.
Moving on to Samsung M2510 we see quad-band GSM support and a 2.2" TFT QCIF display. The 3G support has been sacrificed in order to bring the price down, but all music-related features seem intact.
The Samsung M2510 comes with DNSe audio enhancement technology, FM radio with RDS and a 3.5mm standard audio jack. There is also a microSD card slot with support for up to 8GB memory cards for storing your music collection. Bluetooth and USB give you two more options for transferring it to the phone. A 1.3 megapixel camera should do for adding images to the contacts in your phonebook.
Finally we come to the clamshell Samsung M2310. It sports a main 2" Q-QVGA (120 x 160 pixels) display and 1.06" secondary one with a resolution of 96 x 96 pixels. Quad-band GSM support is also present as well as a VGA camera, Bluetooth and USB.
The internal memory of Smasung M2310 is only 9MB but the microSD card slot can handle up to 8GB cards. A VGA camera completes the list of what the handset has to offer.
As of now there is no information about the availability or the pricing of any of the four new handsets.
I enquired from Samsung Helpline 30308282 on 06/07/2009 about these new models. Howvever they are not aware of these! When these are likely to come in the Market?
