Another touchscreen from Samsung, the SGH-F490 is a 3.5G HSDPA device with a large 3.2 inch screen with an unusual 240 x 432 pixel resolution. This is roughly a 16: Samsung F490 9 ratio, indicating that the F490 is optimised for widescreen video playback if rotated by ninety degrees. SGH-F490

The Samsung F490 features the same “Croix” interface found on the Samsung Armani phone, which probably pitches the handset directly against the iPhone in terms of market appeal. The screen also has a type of tactile feedback, so pressing the icons results in a slight vibration, similar to Motorola’s “haptic” technology.

On the back is a 5 megapixel camera with flash, but there is no mention of autofocus which would be a serious omission on a camera of this type. And although the F490 supports HSDPA high-speed data in addition to 3G, the handset does not support WiFi.

Internal memory is 130MB, and this can be expanded with microSD cards. The SGH-F490 also has a standard 3.5mm socket for headphones, USB 2.0 and Bluetooth 2.0. It’s a relatively slim unit at 11.8mm thick.

There’s no wording on price or availability, and Samsung haven’t exactly been forthcoming with all the technical details, but we would expect to see it in the next few months.
