Samsung Halo “Superphone” To Be Announced Today
The Samsung i8520, also known as the Samsung Halo “superphone” is set to be announced today at the Mobile World Congress and will feature a nice set of features including the newly minted Google Android 2.1.
The Halo will also offer a 3.7 inch Super AMOLED display, with DLP pico projector support that uses a customized interface that provides for a low-resolution, yet large screen area.
The Samsung Halo will also feature an 8MP shooter with 16GB internal memory, 720p video recording capabilities and connectivity via 802.11n WiFi. Users will also find Bluetooth 2.1, a downgrade from the companies recently announced 3.0 Bluetooth Sig certification for their other new device, the Samsung Wave. Unlike the Wave the device is also expected to be lacking the companies TV-level imaging engine.
The Halo is expected to hit Asia and Europe in the summer, while a U.S. 3G version is still nowhere on the companies map. We’re also still missing pricing for the device and any type of expected pricing. [Electronista]
