Samsung i8510 (Innov8) unboxed

Until fairly recently a 2 megapixel camera was about al you could hope for when it came to phones with built in cameras. There are some exceptions to this of course, notably the Nokia N95 with it’s 5 megapixel sensor. However, recently there seems to have been a race among several manufacturers to be the first out there with an 8 megapixel camera phone.

Recently we saw LG enter the race with their Renoir, Sony Ericsson with the C905 and now Samsung with their new i8510 Innov8. I’m not sure who actually won the 8MP race but Samsung are the first to actually send us their phone for review.


The Samsung i8510 Innov8


The Innov8 is a fairly good looking candybar style handset with a slider that reveals a numeric pad and looks a little like a bigger N95. The screen is a generous 2.8" QVGA which does make the handset a little more chunky than I would like.

We’ll have a review for you in a week or so once we have had a chance to use the i8510 properly. Until then enjoy the unboxing video!
