It proved worthy digging into the official LG and Samsung websites. We discovered three new phones, which have never been announced via press release. Meet LG KS365, GD550 and Samsung S5530.
It's a cheap slider with full QWERTY keyboard following the design tradition established by the youthful KS360. The specs sheet is exactly the same as its older sibling - 2.4-inch QVGA touch-enabled screen (only for dialing), 2 megapixel camera, EDGE connectivity, FM radio and microSD card slot. The only visible difference is the slightly redesigned front panel.
The next LG phone that we found is the GD550. It's a standard slider featuring 2.4-inch QVGA TFT display, 5 megapixel camera with D1 video recording, 3G with HSDPA, Bluetooth, FM radio and microSD card slot. LG GD550 is made of high-quality materials - it has metallic body and uses tempered glass on the display.
Finally comes the Samsung S5530. It's a smallish slider bringing some old-school memories. It packs 2.2-inch QVGA display, 3.2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, FM radio and microSD card slot (up to 16GB).
There is no information on availability and pricing, but we expect all these handsets to be reasonably priced and launched soon.
