Samsung Alias U750 with dynamic keys due at Verizon

Samsung Alias U750 coming

The Samsung Alias, also known as the U740, is due to be replaced with this dual-band CDMA handset, the U750, which sports the first dynamic keypad in the industry. The dual-hinged phone will display numbers on its keys when opened up in a portrait orientation or a full QWERTY keyboard when flipped in the landscape view. Rumors have it that the feat is accomplished thanks to e-ink technology on each key, though this is not confirmed.

Detailed specifications are not yet known, but the phone will have a built-in camera capable of recording videos and microSD card slot for data storage. Bluetooth will be integrated, as will external music controls.

More information about the handset is expected to be unveiled at next week's CTIA show, and like its predecessor, the handset is expected to be available through provider Verizon at an unspecified date. [via PhoneArena]
