LG, Samsung Symbian phones

LG and Samsung have premiered new phones at the Symbian smartphone show, Crave reports. The Joy will be LG's first phone to use Symbian, running OS v9 and S60 third-edition feature pack 1. Physical features will include a 2.4-inch color screen, an expandable microSD slot, and broadband connection through HSDPA (3.5G). Two cameras will be on-board: a 2 MP still camera, and a VGA camera for video communication.

Samsung's SGH-i520 should be very similar to the Joy. It too will use OS v9 and S60 third-edition feature pack 1, as well as HSDPA, a 2 MP camera, and a microSD slot. Where the phones will differ is in the i520's 2.3-inch screen and support for A2DP Bluetooth stereo. Neither LG nor Samsung have announced pricing details on the phones, or when North American versions might be released.
