Just a day off since some hot information about Samsung G800 leaked, and we face the next rumored Samsung phone - the bar-shaped Samsung i550. It is supposed to be a GPS-enabled smartphone, running on Symbian OS S60 UI.
The Samsung i550 is a fresh reinforcement to the high-end smartphone portfolio of the company. Samsung i550 will be the first Samsung GPS-enabled smartphone, sporting 3G and HSDPA (3.6 Mbps). The 3.2 megapixel camera will make technology freaks really consider its purchase. It is also worth mentioning that this will be the first bar-shaped Symbian smartphone of the South Korean company.
The Samsung i550 will also feature dedicated keys for GPS, music player and internet browser. Other specifications include a 2.6" display, FM radio with a 3.5 mm jack, 128 MB RAM, microSD card slot and microUSB.
All this functionality is packed into surprisingly small dimensions of 115 x 53 x 13.8 mm.
At this stage no information regarding its availability and pricing is available.
Not only that, but it reminds me of a blackberry pearl in a cheap-looking body.
Why does this remind me of W880i somehow? Is it the similar button arrangement? Or the round fire-button? Or the thin keypad buttons?
Now have a look here upcoming SGH-i570 Symbian smartphone. This looks Samsung. http://www.slashphone.com/102/7871.html I dont know where GSMarena got the i550 from????
