Samsung's i8510 Primera is a super phone
Forgive us if we miss a feature or two here, but the Primera is so jam-packed that it will be the most feature-rich phone ever. It starts with the 8-megapixel, autofocus camera with LED (strangely it is not Xenon) flash. The phone runs off the latest S60 platform, navigated via the optical mouse also found on the OMNIA. It features 128MB of RAM, 16GB of internal NAND memory with microSDHC expansion and has 3G HSDPA 7.2Mbps, Wi-Fi, GPS (with aGPS) and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity. It is DLNA certified, and supports DivX, TV out and has a dedicated 3D graphics accelerator. On the audio front, the Primera offers a 3.5mm headset jack and stereo speakers, and for the first time ever on a mobile phone, there is support for 5.1 surround sound. The camcorder records in QVGA quality at up to 120fps for slow motion video. The screen is 2.8" with 16m colors, though it's not clear what the resolution will be. One report says QVGA, but with all the other features that doesn't seem right and we'd hope to see a VGA panel. At 106.5mm×53.9mm×16.9mm the Primera is a bit on the thick side, but with all those features, 17mm is pretty impressive. It is rumored to be announced mid-August, carrying an astounding €789 ($1240) pricetag!
