Samsung Loche phone coming

The previously leaked S8300 handset from Samsung will come to market bearing the name Loches, according to a Thursday report. The earlier specs also seem to be confirmed with this latest update, and the handset will be the flagship offering from the Korean electronics maker. It will sport a 12.8mm duralumin casing with a 2.8-inch, WQVGA resolution AMOLED touchscreen and 12-key number pad as the combined user interface.

The industry-topping 8-megapixel camera will share dual LED flash, autofocus and video recording features with the Samsung Pixon, another handset equipped with an 8MP camera. Other specs include HSDPA network access, Bluetooth 2.1, and GPS features, along with 60MB of built-in memory expandable via a microSD memory card slot.

There is still no indication of pricing or release dates, though both are expected to be made known at Mobile World Congress due to take place in Spain in mid-February. [via Pocket-Lint]
