Samsung M8800 Pixon – Press Photos & Specs

We have finally been able to find photos (courtesy of GSM Arena) for the Samsung M8800 Pixon and have several updates about its impressive specs sheet that you may be interested in.

After we published a Samsung teaser on Friday, today we finally see the Samsung M8800 Pixon in its full glory.

Official photos of Samsung M8800 Pixon

First of all, the Samsung M8800 Pixon is thin – at 13.8mm. Samsung now have the slimmest 8 megapixel cameraphone but a point to note is that it only beats the LG KC910 Renoir by 0.2mm.

The Pixon has not only DivX, but also Xvid video support making it a true multimedia device.

Unlike the initial unofficial reports, the M8800 Pixon won’t be featuring tri-band UMTS support, so 3G is a no-go in the US (Sorry Guys across the pond).

Next there’s the tilt-and-flip photo browser, which allows flipping through your photos by simply tilting your handset. We didn’t pay much attention to that feature when we saw it back in the commercial video, but Samsung seem to be making a great deal of it so we thought it was worth mentioning.

Samsung are currently not commenting the GPS feature, which makes us wonder whether it will be possible to use it for anything else besides photo geo-tagging, guess we will need to wait for the official release to find out more .

The plan at the moment is to start shipping in mid-October starting in France and soon continuing to most other European and Asian countries. The price is estimated at £435 at the moment but knowing Samsung this could change any time.
