The Korean electronics giant has announced a candy-bar version of its Soul (or Spirit of Ultra) handset. Called the Soulb, this new mobile phone measures a slim 9.9 millimeters and "fully covered in an elegant metallic body which is softly brushed with a hairline pattern," according to the company.
Among its key features are a 3-megapixel camera with LED light, FM radio, 1GB onboard memory with microSD card slot, and a 2-inch QVGA display. The triband Soulb also comes with a multimedia player, document viewer/editor, Bluetooth, and HSDPA support.
Available in five colors (including Soul Grey, Platinum Silver, Metallic Black, Soul Pink and Amethyst Violet), the Soulb is expected to be available first in Germany in early June, followed by other markets such as Europe, Middle East Africa, Asia (China), Southwest Asia, Southeast Asia, and South America. Pricing will be made known closer during launch.
