Samsung Electronics Unveils the SGH-P400 Camera Phone


Samsung Electronics unveiled its latest advanced in-built camera phones, the SGH-P400, SGH-P410 and SGH-V200. Inset is the SGH-P400.

The Samsung SGH-P400, with a rotating screen, allows users to talk, take and send pictures or data quickly and easily through a single device, with the convenience of a rotating viewfinder. It has a built-in CCD (Charge Coupled Device) camera that pivots 180 degrees, and a flip-up cover which doubles as the rotating viewfinder when taking pictures.

Its unique, independently rotating screen and pivoting camera give this phone camcorder-like convenience for picture taking. No matter where the camera is facing, the viewfinder can be rotated for the most convenient viewing.

“Our phones represent the light-hearted spirit of digital convergence, but are also serious business tools,” said Sang Jin Park, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Mobile Communication Division at Samsung Electronics.
“For those who are in constant need of taking digital pictures which can be transmitted wirelessly, they are incredibly useful phones.”

Samsung Electronics will also preview a new in-built camera phone, the SGH-P410. The phone features two colour LCD screens: the internal TFD 65,000-colour screen features a generous 128 x 160 pixel resolution making it bright and easy to read; the external 256-colour OLED(Organic Light Emitting Display) screen.

It has multi-shot-press the shutter and it will automatically fire off 15 rapid shots capturing your extra movement and a video capture feature, which records 40 seconds of footage. It also supports the photo editing features such as 5 Photo effects and 30 photo frames. The Samsung SGH-P410 will launch in the European market in early third quarter of 2003.
