Samsung Ups The Ante With 5-Megapixel Phone
Oct 20, 2004, 3:19 AM by (staff)
Samsung today officially announced the world's first camera phone with 5-megapixel resolution. The SCH-S250, available later this month exclusively in Korea, also includes the first QVGA display in a mobile phone that supports 16.7 million colors. A text-to-speech function is also included, allowing the phone to "speak" to-do lists and incoming text messages. The 5-megapixel camera, designed in cooperation with Asahi Pentax, features a high-quality CCD sensor, 1/1000-second shutter speed, and QVGA video recording. The unique "stretch" design protects the display and camera lens when not in use. 92 MB of built-in memory can store up to 100 minutes of high-quality video, and an RS-MMC memory card slot provides additional storage (32 MB card included). An MP3 player and TV output round out the features.
