Helio to pick up second Samsung phone?

Samsung A303 for Helio

Customers of the media-savvy virtual carrier Helio are about to get the option of a second Samsung phone, according to leaked images provided to Phone Arena. Characterized as a challenger to LG's ever-present Chocolate, the new handset known to date as the SPH-A303 (pictured) would share both the basic slider design as well as the Chocolate's trick of hiding touch-sensitive buttons in a glossy black shell, making them visible only through a backlight. It should also be music-ready, the source claims, with 140MB of built-in storage.

The mystery cellphone should be placed into Helio's lineup as a step below the other Samsung device at Helio, the GPS-equipped Drift, by using a lower-resolution 1.3-megapixel camera. EVDO broadband will stay intact, however. A ship date and price for the carrier's fourth phone are currently unknown.
