It seems that Samsung have another budget touchscreen phone in store for us besides the already available Samsung S5230 Star - meet the Samsung S3650. It's got a quite compact design, unique colors and a 200 euro price tag. And it's almost knocking on your door due for release within 10 September.
Samsung are ready to introduce their next low-end cheap touchscreen phone. Next in line after the S5230 Star and the S5600 Preston is called Samsung S3650 (codenamed Corby) and comes in extremely compact and unique design. The handset's front is painted with standard black color while the rear panel shines in yellow.
The smallish rounded S3650 (called internally Corby - it should have another marketing pet name) has a 2.8-inch QVGA touch display, a 2 megapixel camera, quad-band GSM connectivity, Bluetooth, FM radio and microSD card slot. The S3650 is only 13mm thin and weighs 92 grams.
Following the recent trends, the Samsung S3650 will also come with native social networking integration including MySpace, Facebook and YouTube.
The Samsung S3650 is supposed to hit Europe before 10 September with a retail price of 200 euro. Even better - it has also passed the FCC scrutiny so the US should have it soon as well. We really hope that price will go down to at least 150 euro as otherwise it would be really hard for it to beat tough competition such as that of Nokia 5530 XpressMusic - the third most popular phone in our database.
Bear in mind though, that Samsung have not officially announced the S3650, so we're yet to hear all the details from the horse's mouth.
