Did you know that Samsung once launched a phone with a nightvision camera?
Now, we won't blame you if you've never actually heard of this phone. After all, it was launched only in Samsung's homeland of Korea, where it sold for about $450. That was back in 2009. And the phone's design doesn't reveal anything particularly unusual about it - the W760 seemed to be a typical slider, with a pretty, 2.8-inch display. Still, it was an unusual phone, and what made it interesting was its "nightvision" front-facing camera. Simply put, the camera was sensitive to infra-red light. This allowed it to pick up an image, albeit a black-and-white one, even in complete darkness.
The fact that the Samsung SCH-W760 was a one-of-a-kind product leads us to believe that its nightvision feature didn't gain much of a fanbase. Perhaps image quality was to blame? Or the fact that nobody would really want to have a videochat in complete darkness? Our money is on the latter.
