Samsung E850 (SGH-E850)

 Samsung E850 Discontinued
19th November 2004

The Samsung E800 series of sliding phones has proved to be very successful for Samsung globally, becoming one of the top ten selling phones in most markets. To date the E800 range has been made up of the E800 itself, a variant made for Vodafone called the E810 and another slightly modified unit for T-Mobile called the E820.

The E850 follows closely behind these other phones, but with one rather obvious difference - it has a pop-out rotating camera in the side, which neatly sits inside the camera when not in use, protecting the lens against dust and scratches. In addition, the styling has been worked on a little, making the E850 a more attractive handset than the original E800.

This is a dual-band GSM 900/1800 phone, and has GPRS and a WAP browser. There's no Bluetooth, but the Samsung E850 does have infra-red and can be connected to a PC via a cable. In addition to taking stills photos with the rotating camera, the E850 can also take video clips and of course it supports MMS messaging.

Size and weight are unconfirmed, but it's likely to be around 87x43x24mm and 88 grams, with a 128x160 pixel display in 65,000 colours. The camera is most likely a standard VGA resolution unit.

It doesn't seem to be that exciting a phone at first glance, and really none of the E800 series are particularly advanced. However, they are very compact and feel very well made, so the E850 should sell well.
