Samsung Z610 iPod-style cellphone appears at FCC

Samsung Z610 Cellphone

Despite Sony's conspicuous use of the Walkman name in its attempt to dominate the music phone market, its Korean rival Samsung is clearly set on distinguishing itself as the most music-friendly phone brand. Particularly strong evidence of this is the company's upcoming Z610, discovered today in an FCC filing by Czech site iDNES. It bears an uncanny resemblance to Apple's iPod, including a glossy and minimalist white shell with chrome accents and simple music controls on the front. Detailed specifications are not available in the filling; it will be a 3G-capable slider phone with AAC/MP3/WMA music playback, a microSD slot for extra storage, and two cameras for video calls and photography. As FCC updates point to imminent releases, expect the Z610 before the end of the year. Photos of the front and back are available after the jump.
