Philips has announced that it will be releasing a new Xenium mobile phone that combines long battery life and features.
The Xenium X830 will initially be released into Russia and boasts a battery life span of 10 hours talk time with around one and a half months standby time which appears to have extended the standby period by at least a third on previous models.
The features for the new handset include quad-band GSM connectivity with GPRS and EDGE, a 3in TFT touchscreen display that packs in 320 x 240 pixels and spans 262k colours. A built in camera is included too with this model peaking at 5-megapixels along with autofocus. Entertainment is provided by music and video players along with a FM radio that also supports RDS. The low internal memory of 47MB can be upgraded by the included microSDHC card slot that supports cards up to 8GB. The design, that measures 105 x 53 x 15.5 millimeters and weighs in at 120g, also includes a miniUSB port.
No price details where forthcoming or details released of additional European territories.
