Samsung announces new 5 megapixel camera phone

The F490, which launches in the UK in mid February, offers a huge 3.3 inch 16:9 wide screen display, enabling panoramic views of photos and videos.

Samsung is also pushing the phone's internet browsing capabilities, because, in addition to the large screen, the phone comes with a Google search engine and renders pages both vertically and horizontally.

Despite a beefy set of features, including HSDPA web browsing speeds, the handset measures just 11.8mm deep, which is positively slimline for a smartphone. It also features the new Croix UI user interface, which enables users to control the phone's features by tapping and dragging. For example, you can adjust music volume by stroking the screen from left to right or right to left.

Other top features include 30fps video playback, stereo Bluetooth and a 3.5mm headset jack.
