Samsung intros music F400

The Samsung F400 dual sliding music phone is ready for launch, the Korean company announced on Thursday. The tri-band GSM phone was first seen back in February and features Bang & Olufsen's ICEpower technology for realistic music reproduction from its two large stereo speakers. Traditional features include a 3-megapixel autofocus camera, Bluetooth v 2.0 support, and 1GB of included memory on a microSD card. USB 2.0 is also available for using the phone as a mass storage device.

The F400 features other music-enhancing features, including Smart Bass and Smart Limiter, the latter of which does not allow the signal to exceed the amplitude threshold. A Digital Natural Sound engine (DNSe) 2.0 acts as an equalizer with presets for different music genres. All music can be accessed by a hot key button on the side of the phone.

Music, whether originating from the built-in FM tuner or another source, can be recognized via the embedded Shazam application. A built-in 3.5mm earphone jack provides an alternative to listening via the speakers.

The F400 will be available in black and white when it launches in France by the end of May, with a launch in other European countries as well as countries in Asia, Southeast Asia, and Middle East not far behind. [via Akihabara]
