Samsung launches Samsung Soul

Samsung has announced "Soul", its new flagship product for 2008.

According to the company, "Soul" is "the ultimate essence of mobile" and has been created to "honour" the completion of its exclusive "Ultra Edition" series. "Soul" is an abbreviation of "The Spirit Of Ultra".

The 12.9mm full metal body Soul boasts "Magic Touch" which means the navigation indicators on the keypad of the phone change according to the user's needs.

So, when in music mode, music related icons will light up on the navigation indicators. When in camera mode, camera related icons such as zoom and brightness icons will appear.

"Soul" also offers a new series of graphic user interfaces providing three different options for users. With this Thematic UI, users can change the UI according to their personal tastes. Additionally, users can create their own skins.

The handset boasts a 5-megapixel camera with features such as face detection and image stabiliser and offers 7.2Mbps HSDPA, where such speeds are available.

Music-wise, the MP3 playing phone boasts a digital power amplifier by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower.

The handset will be available in European countries from April. It's being displayed at the Mobile World Congress which Pocket-lint is attending, so we will aim to bring you more info from there.
