The Samsung Monte S5620 mobile phone has been officially announced by the company after numerous rumours and leaked images were spread all over the internet.
Samsung described the new handset as an affordable touch-screen device with a touch of style, but most observers were more interested in whether it was the first bada operating system-equipped phone. Not so, it appears. The new Monte will, instead, include Samsung's own TouchWiz 2.0 Plus user interface along with a range of social networking features for access to MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and Bebo, according to the Korean Newswire website.
The design will feature a range of decent features including Wi-Fi, HSDPA connectivity for fast data transfers, GPS, a couple of Google utilities such as Google Latitude and Google Sync, a full internet browser plus a camera with a decent specification of 3.2-megapixels complete with face detection, smile shot and panorama shot facilities.
Samsung will present the Monte S5620 at MWC 2010 on 15-18 February.
