Korean manufacturer Samsung Electronics has launched an upgraded version of its horizontal LCD phone, a new form-factor introduced by the company last year. The SCH-V600 brings a more compact design and improved features while maintaining the basic product concept of its predecessor, the SCH-V500.
The V500 was the first mobile phone with a LCD screen which allows users to view images and video files horizontally.
The improved V600 has a more sophisticated design and smaller size. The length was reduced by 6.5mm, the width by 3.3mm and the thickness by 1.6mm. Embedded with a high-speed MSM 6500 CPU chip, the V600 offers faster menu selection and an enhanced gaming experience. Two horizontal mode games and three vertical mode games are embedded in the phone.
The V600 also obtained a Korean national certification S-Mark, for its anti-bacterial silver nano-particle coating technology. The phone offer other features such as a 1.3 megapixel camera and external transflash card slot.
The phone operates on CDMA 2000 1X EV-DO network, measures 92.5mm x 48.7mm x 29.3mm and weighs 127.2g. The display is a 1.9-inch 262K Color TFT LCD (176mm x 220mm). It provides stereo sound output, embedded assisted GPS and mp3 player.
The phone will be available in Korea at the end of this month.
