In addition to the sleek new finish, the slider style phone also has a new function - the haptic touch. This new feature allows the touch-sensitive keys on the keypad to vibrate to the users touch, which Samsung says will provide a better response.
The svelte Samsung U600, which measures 10.9mm thick and weighs 81g, also boasts a 3.2 mega pixel camera, video capabilities and Bluetooth functionality. It has 60MB of internal memory and an external memory card slot.
It is available exclusively from O2 on pay monthly contracts or £99.99 on Pay as You Go.
