Seems like the CeBIT 2008 has got things running as Samsung announced their new Samsung G400 mobile - part of what seems to be now Soul family. The Samsung G400 Soul comes in the clamshell form factor (you've guessed it), and boasts a unique dual screen setup.
The Samsung G400 Soul has a high-gloss brushed metal finish and a rich touch-centric user interface. The unique about the Samsung G400 Soul is that it has two identical displays - a 2.22-inch 262K color one on the outside, and a 2.22-inch 262K color one on the inside. The external display is fully touch-operated and gives access to multimedia features such as FM radio, music player, camera, and photos. It also displays the phone's system notifications. The external display also provides haptic feedback with short vibrations when touched. Pity enough, we don't have an image of the display actually working at this stage.
The Samsung G400 Soul is also equipped with a 5 megapixel autofocus camera that comes with advanced features such as face recognition, the widely advertised Samsung's Wide Dynamic Range optimization and image stabilization.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the G400 has fast 7.2Mbps HSDPA support with video calls, Bluetooth, and USB. A microSD memory card slot is also there to fill in.
Somehow we couldn't help but think that the G400 was meant to be announced along with the G900 Soul in Barcelona as Samsung used to do with their two previous Ultra lineups, but obviously the company has decided to keep thinks on focus and concentrate their marketing efforts on one product at a time.
The Samsung G400 Soul will be available in Europe from June.
