Samsung SGH-Z560 UMTS (HSDPA)

Samsung Korea unveiled at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona a new HSDPA phone, the SGH-Z560. The SGH-Z560 benefits from the high-speed 3.6 Mbps HSDPA technology, and will offer transfer speeds of up to 1.8 Mbps, which is almost 6 times better than of the currently 3G handsets. The SGH-Z560 clamshell has a compact design, with only 16 mm thickness. Samsung Electronics stated that the phone will also include a 2 megapixel camera with autofocus, 30MB of internal memory, and an mp3 player with external controls. In addition, the phone features a 2.3 inches QVGA main display, with a 240 x 320 pixel resolution and 262k colours, which can enable a viewing experience similar to that of the recently launched handset SGH-P900.

The Samsung SGH-Z560 has imaging covered, paring a 2.0 megapixel auto-focus camera with a 2.3" QVGA internal screen, and performs equally well with audio, including dual speakers and a MP3/AAC/AAC+/Real/WMA compatible music player and control keys on the front of the flip. To store all this multimedia goodness, the SGH-Z560 includes 30MB of on board memory and a microSD expansion slot

With several carriers rolling out HSDPA services in Europe, the Samsung SGH-Z560 should be commercially available during Q2 this year. While Cingular is currently upgrading its network for HSDPA, no US version of the handset has been announced.
