The recently announced to be the second largest market share holder Samsung is about to release a few more additions to its mobile devices range. The engineers of the company have paid attention to each form factor producing bar shaped, clamshell and slider phones. Here is a quick preview of the newly accepted members of the Samsung family.
The Samsung S730i is a stylish i-mode enabled slider with touch sensitive keypad. It features a 2 megapixel camera which can record video in CIF (352 x 288 pixels) resolution, as well as a microSD memory card slot which allows for extending the 80MB internal memory. The handset has a 262K color TFT display with a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. Its Bluetooth capabilities include support for the A2DP profile which allows listening to music on stereo Bluetooth headphones.
The Samsung S730i is quite compact, standing at 100x50x14.8 mm and weighing only 83g. Overall, it's not that impressive specs wise, but it's a job well done for an i-mode enabled handset. Availability and pricing of the Samsung S730i remain unknown.
The Samsung ZV60 is a 3G clamshell with 91x46x18.3 mm and weighs 105g. It has two displays with the external being a 1" CSTN 65K color one with 96 x 96 resolution while the internal is 1,9" TFT 265K color one with a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. There is a 2 megapixel camera and a secondary VGA camera for video calls. The internal memory is 30 MB, but the ZV60 comes with a microSD memory card slot. No word on availability and pricing.
Finally comes the bar-shaped Samsung Z170 which also sports 3G support and is the slimmest of the three standing only at 9.3 mm thickness and weighing 76g. The Z170 display is 1.8' 262K one with 176x220 pixels resolution. There is a primary camera with 1.3 megapixel CMOS sensor and secondary one (VGA) for handling the videocalls. Video recording is available in QCIF (176x144) resolution at 15 fps. Z170 can connect with other devices through its Bluetooth v.1.2 or via the USB port.
