Samsung i607 Phone Details

The Samsung i320 made a significant impact on the smartphone market by bringing the Korean electronics maker's newfound appreciation for slim phones to the data-thirsty earlier this year. Samsung may repeat its success soon, sources have discovered. Discovered in an FCC filing, the i607 is a successor that should improve the earlier design significantly. Its primary advantages are its greatly increased connection options. Previously, the i320 was a tri-band GSM phone meant only for areas such as Europe and its native Korea. The i607 adds the fourth band necessary for some North American providers and also gains HSDPA support for 3.5G mobile Internet. Bluetooth, a camera, and a microSD slot are also standard.

Yet more convincing information about the phone has also surfaced courtesy of photos by a member of HowardForums. As taken, the new images confirm that the i607 has not only been approved by the FCC but will also ship first to Cingular subscribers and will be powered by Microsoft's Windows Mobile 5. Finalized launch details should appear within the next few weeks.
