The Samsung F480 is closely related to the Samsung F490, and is a 3.5G capable touchscreen phone with a 5 megapixel camera. Competing more with the LG Viewty than the Apple iPhone, the SGH-F480 looks like a promising device.

Touchscreen phones are all the rage at the moment, and Samsung have created quite a few in the past year.. and they seem to be getting pretty good at it.

 Samsung SGH-F480 This is a 3.5G capable device supporting HSDPA high speed data downloads of up to 7.2 Mbps. It also supports standard 3G (UMTS), GPRS and EDGE data, however the Samsung F480 does not support WiFi. The display is a large 2.8" 240 x 320 pixel panel, and on the back is a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash. The F480's camera also features video and image stabilisation, has a slow motion function and built-in video editor.

There is, of course, a multimedia player capable of playing back a variety of video and audio files. The Samsung F480 also comes with a FM radio with RDS. There's a microSD slot for memory expansion, and the SGH-F480 has Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity. In addition, there is built-in blogging support, an email client and web browser.

It's a relatively compact device at 96 x 55 x 12mm and just 91 grams in weight, which is impressive when you consider the number of features that the F480 includes. Samsung haven't given any guidance on battery life though, and we suspect that the F480 will make a tradeoff here. There appears to be an optional cover for the F480, and this will increase size and weight somewhat.

Samsung haven't said when the F480 will become available, nor do we have any indication of price at present.
