Samsung goes up against iPhone with F490

Samsung goes up against iPhone with F490

Samsung has launched a barrage of phones in a quick fire press conference giving us just the basic facts for the new handsets.

Top of the list is the already-revealed F490, an iPhone challenger that will feature a 3.2-inch, 16:9 ratio touchscreen display.

However, hoping to trump Apple's smartphone, the device will also feature a 5-megapixel camera as well as HSDPA connectivity.

The phone will be exclusive to Vodafone in the UK.

Samsung has also announced the launch of the F480, featuring a touchscreen display and a 5-megapixel camera.

The company has updated its flagship camera phone launching the G810. The new model, which appears to come in the same form factor will come with 5-megapixel and 3x optical zoom, however it will also add GPS beyond the original G800 handset launched last year.

The phone has also added the Symbian operating system.

Other handsets announced are the F400 - a music-focused phone - which includes a 3.5mm headset, and a business-focused handset - the i780 complete with QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen.

Elsewhere the company announced the L760, a basic 3G handset and the B100 a basic handset aimed at the lower end of the market.

More coverage including first looks and picture galleries will be posted shortly.
