Philips Xenium X830 photos
Specs and photos for an upcoming handset from Philips, the Xenium X830, have surfaced on Friday, revealing a handsome, if entry-level device. It will support quad-band GSM voice networks and GPRS and EDGE data connections, but the phone's headline-grabbing feature is its battery's 1.5 months of standby time and 10 hours of talk time. A 3-inch, 320x240 color touchscreen acts as the interface, and there is a decent 5-megapixel camera with autofocus integrated into the device.
An integrated music and video player lets users entertain themselves, with the internal 47MB of memory supplanted by microSDHC cards up to 8GB in size. An FM radio tuner with RDS brings tunes over the air. Users can connect compatible headphones via a stereo Bluetooth connection.
Which carrier will claim the Xenium X830 remains to be seen, and as such, ship dates and pricing information for the handset remain unknown. [via UnwiredView]
