Leaked spec and pics suggest Samsung is readying the candybar-shaped i550 for launch.

The all metal moby with that tasty brushed finish sports a different design that we've seen from Samsung before, those skinny keypad buttons inviting comparison with Sony Ericsson handsets.

Looks aside, it's got it going on - it's rumoured to be the world's first from Samsung with a built-in GPS receiver and a hot key to offer access to mapping.

A short-cut key for music can also being spied in the pic, as well as a trackball control.

Other rumoured specs include HSDPA connectivity, 3.2-megapixel camera at the back, FM radio, microSD card slot, 128MB of RAM and the phone will reportedly run the Symbian OS.

And all that in a package measuring just 115 x 53 x 13.8mm.

Rumours only, so no info on availability or pricing.
