Obviously, Samsung has been working hard on the idea of an extremely slim phone
and after the Samsung Ultra 6.9 – X820 (the Trace for T-Mobile is based on it), the new Ultra 5.9 strips a millimeter down its thickness, now only 5.9mm or 0.23 inches slim. But the specifications didn’t suffer from that – the camera is now 3.2-megapixel and the on-board memory is about 80MB. Bluetooth is supported, and unfortunately the phone is tri-band GSM only. Knowing Samsung’s practice from previous models, we expect a US-bound version of it to appear later with either of the major GSM carriers.
