Ever wanted a cell phone that resembled that wonderful hand-made quilt your great-great grandmother knitted a long long time ago? Of course you did right? Why else would Samsung make such a device then? Samsung has just unveiled the first two members of their new line of cell phones from the Diva series, the S5150 Flip and the S7070 Touch. It seems Samsung is targeting women with these phones mainly because of the "Diva" name but also because in a press release about the S5150 and S7070 it was said "Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. today debuts two phones that will satisfy every woman's fascination and desire for mobile phones..." and "...Samsung plans to introduce Samsung Diva Collection models annually to satiate the inner needs of women mobile phone users." Sounds exciting doesn't it?
The S7070 Touch has a few features that may actually appeal to some of you out there, other than the "beautiful" quilted exterior. The Touch comes with a 5-megapixel, autofocus camera as well as a 3-inch resistive touchscreen display. The display has WQVGA resolution and runs TouchWiz UI. Connectivity includes a standard microUSB connector as well as Bluetooth connectivity. In addition to that, the Touch also has built-in FM radio and a microSD slot. The touch also has a feature called "Beauty Effect". This gives you "perfect photo retouching so portraits will look flawlessly beautiful". The Touch also has Lomo Effect, which enriches ordinary snapshots into "artistic photographs".
The other quilted wonder unveiled by Samsung is the S5150 "Clamshell". The S5150 has a super shiny quilted finish as well as a concealed LED (not LCD) that lights up in different ways when calls come in or other events happen. The S5150 has a 2.2-inch display with QVGA resolution as well as a 3-megapixel camera. The S5150 also offers features like Beauty Shot and Lomo Effect as well as built-in security features like "SOS Message" and "Fake call".
If you desperately seek a phone like this then you are in luck because Samsung has announced that they should be available in Q1 2010 though no word on pricing has been released.
