Last week we reported
that a brand new, affordable handset by Samsung featuring a touch sensitive screen, had passed FCC testing. According to new information, the S3650 will roll out as the Samsung Corby and actually be quite a good-looking cell phone
. It´s contract-free, unlocked version will probably become available at a price within the $150-200 range. Certainly, you can´t expect to get Samsung Omnia HD-like functionality with such a price tag, but still, its specifications look promising indeed - a 2.8-inch QVGA display, 2-megapixel camera, FM Radio with RDS, Bluetooth and microSD slot. The device will be a quad-band handset, coming without 3G support. If the Samsung releases the S3650 in color versions similar to the one you can see in the pictures, kids and teens are going to love it, that´s for sure.
It seems the slider M2520
that CellularCafe.com.br reports of is aimed for the same audience and will join the M2310 and M2510, lending some color to the low-end music range of the manufacturer. All we know about the M2510 is it´s going to be a quad-band, Bluetooth capable handset and it´s quite possible it turns out to be a localized version of the M2510 for Brazil and Latin America.
We will certainly keep you posted on the Samsung´s range of affordable handsets.
