Samsung Louvre handset

Limited information and an image of the Samsung B7610 Louvre handset has been revealed by a Dutch branch of Carphone Warehouse. The horizontal slider smartphone is due to replace the company's F700/Croix handset launched by Vodafone back in 2007, and will run on the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system rather than a custom platform. Other than the full QWERTY keyboard hiding behind the display, the handset may also get UMTS/HSDPA data network support, as well as a 5-megapixel camera and possibly Wi-Fi functionality.

The Croix had a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a feature the Louvre is likely to carry over, if not improve upon. It's not known if the resolution would improve, however.

The Samsung B7610 Louvre is expected to be available in certain European markets at the start of July, though no specific dates or prices have been confirmed. [via Pocket-Lint]
