SAMSUNG Sets New Standard Of Quality For Camera Phones


LAS VEGAS - January 8, 2007 - Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung) will showcase its innovative line of camera phones at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show. From the 3.2 megapixel SCH-a990 to the 10 megapixel SCH-B600, Samsung's camera phones offer true digital convergence of innovative technologies and a broad photographic feature set available on a mobile handset.



The SCH-a990, the first 3.2 megapixel camera phone currently available in the U.S., produces photos comparable to a stand-alone camera and has the ability to transmit the images to a Bluetooth-enabled printer. The device is also Mobile Web 2.0-capable and accommodates V-cast technology for video and music downloads.



"In 2006, convergence of mobile phone technology became even more prevalent with the launch of the SCH-a990 in the United States," said Dale Sohn, President, Samsung Telecommunications America. "However, no matter how much increased functionality we bring to mobile phones, consumers want a good phone first and foremost. The quality of Samsung phones is what sets us apart."



The SCH-a990 from Verizon Wireless and SAMSUNG is the first 3.2 megapixel digital camera phone currently available to Verizon Wireless customers as well as the American market and remains the premier print quality camera phone. The SCH-a990 enables photo enthusiasts to take high-resolution photos of a similar print quality as a standalone digital camera. In addition, the SCH-a990 boasts a number of media features, including video recording capabilities, V CAST to view video and V CAST Music to download music directly to the phone and Bluetooth® wireless technology, which allows a customer to print pictures wirelessly from the SCH-a990 to a Bluetooth-enabled printer basic print profile. The SCH-a990 has a unique design that holds first like a phone and then, when the screen is rotated 180 degrees, like a camera. This innovative design, along with the high resolution and features such as a flash and in-camera photo editing software, make the SCH-a990 the first mobile device that is as much a camera as it is a multimedia phone.



Globally, Samsung Electronics is the first to bring a 3, 5, 7 and 10 megapixel camera phone to market. The World's First 10 Megapixel Camera Phone (model: SCH-B600) is 6mm thinner and 10g lighter than the 7 megapixel camera phone (SCH-V770) and sets itself apart from its previous megapixel camera phones by combining mobile TV capability in Satellite standard. The B600 offers the same level of picture-taking sophistication that a 10 megapixel digital camera offers. The camera function includes 3x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom. It also has auto focus and a flash unit that performs optimally for 10 megapixel photographs. Also, the B600 comes fitted with a LED autofocus feature which assists users to capture clear, crisp photos even in dark settings. Located next to the lens, the LED autofocus automatically determines the distance and utilizes the appropriate focus setting for optimal photo shooting.
