Samsung has launched a new mobile phone called the L870 that will come with Apple’s Safari browser found in the iPhone.

The new handset due out in Europe in August later this year will run the Symbian S60 operating system and will feature Apple's Webkit-based, Safari browser so far only seen on the Apple iPhone.

Although not "touch"-enabled the device will allow people to use the browser to surf the web.

On the spec front, the new slider phone will be 13.5mm thick and come encased within a stainless steel body with hairline pattern.

Sporting HSDPA connectivity there is a 2.4-inch QVGA TFT display, a 3-megapixel camera, FM radio with RDS, music player and Bluetooth v.2.0.

There will be 100MB internal memory with a microSD slot for expanding it further.

In February, Google revealed that it had seen 50 times more search requests coming from Apple iPhones than any other mobile handset.

The figures were so high that the search company initially thought they had made an error compiling the data.

UPDATE: The Safari browser feature appears to be a misunderstanding, the L870 will not feature the Apple Safari browser.
