UNVEILED: Samsung SGH-i620 Windows Mobile Standard Smartphone shows its face [UPDATE]

No, the Samsung SGH-i620 isn't available yet nor it was announced so far but some carriers hinted its existence already. And now, UK-based website Mobile Gazette posted the first photos and draft specifications of this smart QWERTY slider which is definitely following the SGH-i600 philosophy.
While not too much is known yet, Mobile Gazette says, the i620 will be a triband (only) GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone as well as supporting UMTS (supported bands are unknown), featuring two cameras (one with 2 megapixel and photo light). It's expected to be powered by Windows Mobile 6 and closed, the phone measures something around 59 mm width and 94 mm height while opened it's 131 mm:


All other specs like WiFi and Bluetooth support are speculated only (but can be expected). If the design above turns out to be true, it's interesting to see that Samsung continues with QWERTY phones but in a smart way we haven't seen before for "BlackBerry-like" devices.

Further information about price and availability aren't available today.

UPDATE: The Global Certification Forum (GCF) lists two versions of the new phone: the Samsung SGH-i620 and the SGH-i620V (V = Vodafone like the SGH-i600V is the Vodafone version of the i600?) and confirms, that both devices are triband GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz) only but also confirms support for HSDPA (UTRA FDDI) and video telephony. Definitely good news for Europeans but bad news for Americans since it's not quadband at all.

Cheers ~ Arne

Oh please, can anyone confirm it is true and we will see it with US HSDPA this summer?
This thing looks gorgeous and would be a wonderful replacement of my wife's Moto Q! Please, make this thing real!!!

I guess as long as there is no i627, I doubt we will see it in the US! sad
But I agree, looks lovely for women, while the i607 is for real men! wink

Love it! Hopefully Orange will sell it also!
Would be a wonderfully replacement of my current Palm Treo. And I'm male!
