Samsung i7110 (GT-i7110)

 Samsung i7110 Discontinued
20th October 2008

We first gave you a glimpse of the Samsung i7110 a few days ago, and now Samsung have confirmed details of this powerful but conventional looking Symbian smartphone.

The understated design hides the fact that the i7110 is only slightly less impressive than the acclaimed Samsung i8510. On the back is a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, the main display is a 2.6" AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic LED) display that should give bright, sharp colours. Inside the i7110 is a dual-band UMTS 900 / 2100 device with quad-band GSM, HSDPA data support and WiFi. The i7110 also has a GPS receiver, and unusually it comes with an FM transmitter that allows it to play back over a car or home radio (assuming that it is legal to use in your country). Of course, the i7110 has microSD expandable memory, Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0 as well.

 Samsung i7110 The i7110 runs the clumsily named Symbian OS V9.3, S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 operating system.. which is basically the same thing that you'll find on a Nokia smartphone. We don't know if Samsung have enhanced the interface in the way that they did with the i8510, but from press photographs it does seem to include at least some elements from its big brother. The navigation pad can be used as a mouse, and the i7110 has an accelerometer which should mean that it changes screen orientations automatically.

The digital imaging features look particularly impressive. In addition to the 5 megapixel sensor, autofocus and LED flash, the i7110 has face detection features and can capture VGA resolution video (640 x 480 pixels) at 30 frames per second, or QVGA video at 120 frames per second, which is useful for slow-motion playback. In conjunction with the GPS receiver, the camera can geotag images with the picture's location.

You want more? Well, the Samsung i7110 can play back DivX movies, plus all the usual formats including MP3, Windows Media and RealPlayer formats. There's an FM radio, and as we already mentioned, the i7110 is one of only a small number of phones to feature an FM transmitter.

The GPS functionality comes with a driving map and a pedestrian map of major European cities. Another clever feature is that the satellite navigation function also uses the FM transmitter, so you can listed to  spoken directions on your car's loudspeakers.

Powerful devices such as this can drain the battery pretty quickly, so fortunately Samsung have installed a large 1200 mAh cell that can power the i7110 for up to 6 hours talktime on 3G and 11 hours on GSM, with a standby time of around 17 or 18 days. The i7110 is a little larger than you might expect at 118 x 52 x 13mm, although Samsung haven't said how much this multimedia monster will weigh.. or how much it will cost.

There's no doubt that the Samsung i7110 is a very impressive bit of kit, and along with the i8510 it provides some serious competition for Nokia in the Symbian smartphone market. Samsung say that the i7110 should start to be available in Europe from November.
