Samsung J400 (SGH-J400)

 Samsung J400 Discontinued
22nd January 2008

A familiar looking handset from Samsung, the SGH-J400 is based closely on a design that Samsung have used all the way back to the Samsung E700, and cropping up again last year in the Samsung M300.

This particular Samsung clamshell is a pretty basic 3G phone which is presumably being aimed at the value end of the market. There's a 1.3 megapixel primary camera, a secondary video calling camera, a 176x220 pixel internal display in 262,000 colours plus a small 96x96 pixel monochrome display on the outside, Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, microSD expandable memory and the SGH-J400 also has a multimedia player, web browser and email client.

 Samsung J400 There's nothing really special about this phone, in fact it has been a long time since we've seen anything quite this basic in the 3G market. The specification is not much different from the three-year-old Samsung Z500, so we can assume that the key selling point of the Samsung J400 is going to be cheapness.

It is a nice looking phone though, although if you only have a 1.3 megapixel camera, it's probably not worth mentioning it on the case as some of the publicity shots show.

At 101 grams, the SGH-J400 is pretty typical for a 3G device, although we have seen better specified phones that are much lighter. Talktime is quoted as 3 hours with up to 10 days standby time.

Samsung say that there are two colour schemes - "Luxury Brown" (which has sand coloured highlights) and Noble Black (which is actually grey). We have seen a third colour, an attractive black/steel blue combination (left) that may also be available in some regions.

There's no word on pricing or availability, but from the looks of things, the Samsung J400 should be in the shops during Q1 2008.
