New Sanyo Katana Spotted on FCC Site

Article Comments  27  

May 24, 2007, 3:10 PM   by (staff)

Sanyo is taking another stab at the Katana clamshell, which is likely bound for Sprint. The Sanyo SCP-6650 Katana II is the same thickness as its predecessor, but shrinks 2 millimeters in width and 4 millimeters in height. It features a larger external display which is positioned slightly lower on the front of the phone, and a 2.5mm headset jack, based on the pictures. It carries over the camera and Bluetooth and has an internal antenna. Little else is revealed in the filings, and neither Sprint nor Sanyo have discussed this new phone yet.

They are also releasing the Katana DLX, which does have an MP3 player, and is EVDO. I got to play with it earlier this week.

ARE EITHER THE KATANA II OR KATANA DLX ANALOG? (AMPS 850)???

Confused Confused I MUST HAVE ANALOG FOR MY THIRD PHONE!!! I ASSUME THE DLX DOES NOT AS IT IS EVDO, BUT THE KATANA II SHOULD BE AMPS LIKE THE NEW SANYO 3200!?!? DOES ANYONE HAVE A DEFINITIVE ANSWER REGARDING THIS??? THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP. Smile Confused Confused

Does it fix the speaker volume.

This phone the 6600 had a known issue with a low speaker volume. Crying or Very sad

Hope this is one of the main things the 6650 will fix, also will this phone be EVDO?

As a side note

Every time I glance at the name Katana, I think it says Katrina which is kinda confusing Paranoid
it reminds me of the character in the game Mortal Combat (only spelled slightly different)

huh...yay sanyo...or not

how different is this? yet again, Sanyo...disappoints.

it may be, MAY be a tad smoother, not that different in design. no thanks.
...
There WILL be a Katana II with Power Vision as well.
...
Ive seen the K2... i attended the Data Evolution Tour and one of the fellow attendees was Beta Testing it... it doesnt have a SD card slot... the key pad looks prettier and its a tad nicer to hold and handle... thats about it... nothing to swoon over ...
