Samsung M8800 Pixon (AKA Bresson) appears

The 8 megapixel full touchscreen Samsung M8800 seems to have been announced today – rather quietly in fact. And it’s already been previewed by a Russian team, who provided some nice images along the way.


The Samsung M8800, be it Bresson or Pixon, is the second 8 megapixel handset by Samsung, following the Symbian-powered Samsung i8510 INNOV8 .


The Samsung M8800 however is not a smartphone and has no keyboard but a 3.2-inch touchscreen display and has the same TouchWiz interface as the Samsung Omnia and Samsung F480 Tocco, however this time they’ve added Weather and Google widgets.

  • Quad-band GSM, tri-band HSDPA

Unfortunately, the lack of Wi-Fi functionality is a bit of a downer and would make it hard to compete with the rivaling LG KC910 Renoir.

The Samsung M8800 is set to start shipping as early as 10 November 2008 at a starting price of 550 euro (800 US dollars).
