Samsung F300 (SGH-F300 / Ultra Music)

 Samsung F300 Discontinued
11th December 2006

The Samsung F300 is one of three new "Ultra Edition" phones - this one dubbed the "Samsung Ultra Music".

What makes the Samsung F300 so special is something that we can't show you.. because Samsung's press office have only supplied a picture of one side of the SGH-F300. Here's the clever thing: on one side of the F300 is a "music player" interface with a large screen and multidirectional pad.. on the other side is a conventional numeric keypad plus a much smaller screen. It's the first time we've ever seen this on a mobile phone, and it's just such a darned shame we can't show it to you. This arrangement is also found on the Samsung F500.

We'll call the numeric keypad side of the Samsung SGH-F300 the "phone side" and the side with the large screen the "multimedia side" just to be clear. The multimedia side features a large 2.1" 176x220 pixel display in 262,000 colours. Underneath that is a multiway navigation key that illuminates a little like the Samsung E900. Samsung say that the F300's multimedia control "makes navigation very intuitive".

 Samsung SGH-F300 Flip the Samsung F300 over to the phone side, and there's a two megapixel digital camera. Of course, with the numeric keypad on the same side, people who you photograph are going to wonder just what the heck you are doing. But the arrangement is still really, really cool.

Internal memory is 100Mb, and this can be expanded using microSD cards to a maximum of 2Gb. The F300's media player is pretty comprehensive, with support for MP3, AAC and WMA audio formats plus the SGH-F300 supports MPEG4 and H.263 video types. There's also an FM radio built in.

Of course, the Samsung SGH-F300 is a Bluetooth handset - in this case the F300 supports stereo Bluetooth 2.0. There's also a USB 2.0 interface so that you can connect the F300 to a PC.

Underneath it all, the Samsung SGH-F300 is a tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 device with GPRS and EDGE data (but no 3G). Physical measurements are 104 x 44 x 9.4mm, although the weight in not known.

Samsung haven't said exactly when the SGH-F300 will come out, nor how much it will cost. But whenever it does, the novel dual-face design and slim form factor will give it plenty of "wow" factor.
