The Samsung Pixon M8800 (aka Bresson) isn’t exactly a smartphone. At first glance, you might think its 3.2-inch (240 x 400 pixels) touchscreen display is the highlight of the phone. But, you’d be wrong. The main attraction of the 13.8 mm thin Pixon M8800 is its 8 megapixel camera. The images taken by the phone is said to rival those taken by a digital camera, which is great for the on-the-go snappers. The camera supports video recording at WVGA (720 x 480 pixels) at 30 FPS, VGA (640 x 480 pixels) at 30 FPS, and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) at 120 FPS. The camera also has 16x zoom with dual power LED flash and face detection. Video demo and full specs after the jump.
The Samsung Pixon M8800 is a quad-band GSM phone supporting HSDPA 7.2 Mbps connectivity. GPS, Bluetooth, microSD slot, accelerometer (detects phone’s orientation), virtual QWERTY keyboard (ala iPhone), DivX playback, FM tuner with RDS, and handwriting recognition round out the phone’s features. Sadly, the Pixon has no Wi-Fi. The Samsung Pixon M8800 should hit Europe on November 10 for 550 Euros ($800 USD).
