Samsung preps super-narrow Ultra F200 music phone

Samsung Ultra F200

Among its other products hidden at CeBIT, Samsung has revealed the Ultra Music F200. The handset is a spiritual successor to the company's narrow, pocket-friendly X830 swivel phone but shifts its attention to music with a digital amp and enhanced 3D audio. In contrast to the US-bound F300, however, the F200 won't rely on internal storage for its media library; Samsung drops the internal storage from 1GB to 5MB and reliea instead on an easily accessible microSD card slot to keep the bulk of owner's collection of MP3, OGG, or WMA tracks.

Controls are also simpler, photos reveal: the characteristic wheel and two-row number pad of the X830 are scrapped in favor of a simpler five-point directional pad and a wider three-row set of keys. Whether or not Bluetooth and a camera will reach the finished phone is unknown.

A launch date is also unavailable, though the device may follow the F300 through Sprint or another major US carrier within the next several months. [via SOGI]
