Philips has begun to create quite a reputation for itself in the mobile phone industry but not in the normal, expected fields – those glitzy areas such as feature counts, big advanced screens, multitasking and the like. Philips likes to think ‘battery’. As part of its ever growing Xenium range, the company has just announced a new entry into the fold called the Philips Xenium X312 with a long life battery included that results in a stand-by rating of one month.
The handset’s other features are difficult to pin down. However, observers have commented how much this design resembles the Philips X320 so wonder if the new X312 might also include Bluetooth, a music player, FM radio, a 2-megapixel camera plus a microSD card slot, according to the Ubergizmo website.
The phone is initially to be sold into the Russian market, no other information has been revealed. We’ll pass on more details when we receive them.
