New Samsung Phone at Helio

The virtual network operator Helio is set to replace its swiveling, Samsung-made Kickflip phone with a new, more conventional design from the Korean company, according to an image provided by an anonymous source. The new device, named the Drift by Helio and codenamed the Astropop by Samsung itself, more closely resembles the latter's typically Korea-only slider phones but sports features similar to the Kickflip, which was recently discontinued by Helio. Early information reveals that its primary enhancement over the outgoing model will be the addition of a Bluetooth transmitter that can both sync with a host PC as well as connect to A2DP-supporting wireless headsets and speakers. The Drift will be released next month, though the source hasn't specified whether its price will vary significantly from the $200 of the Kickflip. The full leaked image is available after the jump.
