The Samsung X820 is the slimmest handset in the world to date at just 6.6mm thick - slimmer than even the diminutive VK2000 - and it weighs just 66 grams, which also makes it one of the lightest phones on the market.

 Samsung SGH-X820 Despite its small size, the Samsung X820 doesn't compromise on features. Theres a 1.9" 220x176 pixel display, a 2 megapixel digital camera, Bluetooth, 80Mb of internal non-expandable memory, a multimedia player and TV output. It also has a multimedia player capable of playing back MP3, AAC and WMA audio tracks and we understand that the SGH-X820 supports stereo Bluetooth too.

It's a tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 handset with GPRS and EDGE. In physical terms, the Samsung X820 measures 113x50x6.9mm which is a pretty normal size for a mobile phone (apart from its thin-ness). Unusually, the SGH-X820 comes with a "landscape" format screen that's wider than it is tall, at 220x176 pixels.

To be honest, the Samsung X820 isn't really a pretty phone. It lacks the "wow factor" of a device such as the Motorola RAZR V3i for example, but it does seem to be a much more practical phone to use with a proper keypad.

Samsung say that they intend to launch the SGH-X820 in Russia in June 2006, followed by other regions later. At present there is no indication of cost or marketplaces where the X820 will be available.
