SAMSUNG Electronics Releases Mobile Phone with Color TV Function

Seoul, Korea-June 9th, 2003: Samsung Electronics has introduced the TV Phone (model: SCH-X820) in Korea that accesses color TV in real time over VHF/UHF channels (local stations KBS, MBC, SBS and EBS). Previously, mobile phone users have had to pay separate fees to service providers to watch TV. However, the SCH-X820 has a built-in TV tuner that receives TV broadcasts directly from the station free of charge.

Not only does the TV Phone’s high-performance antenna, receive both TV and mobile phone signals, but it also offers high-quality TV images. For added convenience, the phone can automatically select the channels with excellent reception. The TV screen can be adjusted for viewing either horizontally or vertically. Moreover, you can listen with an earphone so as not to disturb others.

In addition, the user can capture and save up to 50 frames of any TV broadcast (such as a favorite scene or dramatic sports play) for use as the screen background image.

The main screen is a 262,000-color TFT-LCD that reproduces high quality images. The SCH-X820 also has an external 256-color organic electro-luminescence display.

A Samsung Electronics spokesperson said, “We now have a camera phone, camcorder phone and TV phone in our multimedia mobile phone lineup, and we will soon add a music-on-demand phone, as we aggressively go after the domestic market.”

The SCH-X820 will retail for under KRW700,000 in Korea.
