Samsung unveils the Pixon

Samsung has officially unveiled their latest eight-megapixel camera phone, the Pixon. We saw the specs last week and it can now be confirmed that the Pixon, at only 13.8mm thin, will be the world's slimmest eight-megapixel camera, at least for a while. The Pixon uses a full touch-screen interface measuring 3.2-inches with a display of 240x400 pixels. There's built-in A-GPS, a TV out functionality, FM radio and office document viewer.


However, it's the camera functionality that really stands out. As well as promising an authentic digital camera feel, users of the Samsung Pixon will be treated to an array of functions including auto-focus, fast-shutter, face detection and 16x digital zoom. With the aid of the built-in GPS, photos will also be able to be geo-tagged meaning you can reference them with the location of where you took them. Samsung has also bundled in an integrated Photo Browser that enables photos to be easily shared and viewed with friends and family.


The Samsung Pixon is the second eight-megapixel camera phone the manufacturer has produced following the Samsung i8510. The Samsung Pixon will be available from 1 November, though no pricing details have been announced as of yet.
