Delicious. Samsung is fast emerging as the main competitor for Nokia in the S60 space, it is actually not merely competing but setting the bar pretty high if the leaked Samsung Acme i8910 is anything to go by. Not only did Samsung beat Nokia in the race to the 8MP camera, it also seems all set to trump it in getting the first HD video recording capable handset to the market.
The Samsung Acme i8910 will also be the third S60 touch handset after the Nokia 5800 and the N97. It is clearly focused on Imaging and also packs a HDMI out slot. Eldar from Mobile-Review had an opportunity to try the HD video capture on the device and reports that the phone dies in a mere 40 minutes with HD recording in play, although that might/probably will change by the time the device gets to the market.
Here are a few other major specs of the upcoming Samsung:
- A wide touchscreen display – Exact resolution uncertain
- WIFI & DNLA
- 8MP camera with a single LED flash and HD video recording
- DivX support
- A 3.5mm jack
With the Mobile World Congress just around the corner we can also expect to be surprised by the Finish giant, for all we know Nokia’s Imaging flagship might also be on its way. What eventually happens – we’ll know in 9 days.
