Samsung launches SCH-B600 10 megapixel camera phone

Mobile phones

Is it primarily a phone or a camera? Who knows – but Samsung is certainly turning a few heads with the SCH-B600 10 megapixel camera phone, which it has just launched in Korea.

The SCH-B600 is actually 6mm thinner and 10g lighter than it’s previous big camera phone – the 7 megapixel SCH-V770. The new model features 3x optical zoom, 5x digital zoom and an LED autofocus feature for clearer, sharper images, even in poor light. There’s also white balance, manual focus, continuous picture-taking and movie recording, along with Bluetooth for sending your pictures wirelessly, a high-colour TFT LCD screen and TV out to view images and movies externally.

Despite all that – and looking like a camera, it is very much a phone, with all the usual functions, plus MP3 player, business card reader and mobile TV via DMB. Will we see it in Europe? Who knows, but it’s on sale now in Korea for the equivalent of around £485.
