Samsung E420 (SGH-E420)

 Samsung E420 Expected November 2006
31st October 2006

The Samsung E420 is a low cost member of Samsung's "La Fleur" series of fashion phones.

It's a basic clamshell phone, with a 128x160 pixel OLED display in 65,000 colours, a VGA resolution (0.3. megapixel) camera and that's really about it, apart from the E420's attractive looks.

In fact, it's the SGH-E420's looks that give the game away - the interior and basic specifications mark it out as an upgrade to the Samsung X400 (see below) from 2003. Yup, this is essentially a three-year-old phone with a bit of a facelift and a few new features. Just how basic the Samsung E420 is becomes apparent when you look at what it doesn't include - there's no Bluetooth or MP3 player, and certainly no expandable memory. On the other hand, the E420's internal 2Mb of memory will be plenty given the resolution of the camera and lack of multimedia features. Samsung haven't confirmed the weight, but given that the old X400 weighed 70 grams, you should expect the SGH-E420 to weigh in at not much more than that.

Features aren't everything though, because the Samsung E420 is designed to be a low cost handset.. although at around 190 / $220 / 115 (before tax and subsidy) the SGH-E420 looks somewhat overpriced, especially given that it doesn't support Bluetooth. It's an attractive phone though, and it manages to look good on both the inside and outside which is better than many rivals.

Samsung say that the SGH-E420 should be available in Russia in November 2006, followed by some other regions at a later date.
