Samsung U900 coming to Verizon as the Flipshot

Samsung Flipshot Leak

Samsung's U900 Ultra Edition phone will be rechristened the Flipshot when it arrives in the US through Verizon, according to leaked details provided by Mobiledia. The device has had most of its American specifications revealed and will earn its name through its swiveling display: twisting the LCD horizontally helps turn the phone into an impromptu 3-megapixel camera or camcorder with a photo-friendly landscape view. An onboard flash and image editing software produce better-looking shots before they reach a computer or are sent to a friend.

In spite of its photography focus, the Flipshot will also have at least a partial focus on music, with MP3 support and a microSD slot to store both music and photos. EVDO Internet access and assisted GPS using Verizon's VZ Navigator are also confirmed, the report says. Verizon has not solidified a release date for the Samsung flip phone but is known to be readying a release before the end of the year.
