Philips Xenium X830 has 5MP camera, Wi-Fi and GPS

10 June, 2009

Every once in a while Philips remind us of themsleves with some new mobile phones. Their Xenium line is known for giving you over a month of stand by. If you're thinking that the prolonged battery life comes at the expense of features - you're wrong. Their latest full touch device - the Philips Xenium X830 - comes with a 5 megapixel camera.

The X830 is a feature phone that builds on the X800 and X810 - a big 3" touchscreen with WQVGA resolution and 262K colors. The camera is also quite respectable - 5 megapixels with autofocus and LED flash.

The phone is headed to China and Russia, so it doesn't have 3G support. The Philips X830 offers quad-band GSM/EDGE. It makes up for the lack of UMTS by offering Wi-Fi.

The GPS receiver is another goody that made its way into this power efficient handset. The other connectivity options of the X830 include Bluetooth and USB. A microSD card slot, music player and FM radio will help make the commute to work shorter. The built-in memory is 47MB.

The physical size of the Philips X830 of 105 x 53 x 15.5mm makes it quite compact, though its 120 grams are a bit much. The phone will be available soon though there's no word on pricing yet. We don't know the stand by time either, but its predecessor - the X810 - manages a respectable 1 month.

Well, these comments are over 8 years old! Truth is Philips moved its factory to Shenzen and joined with Sangfei, under supervision from Philips. I distributed Philips in Africa. Good handsets at the time.....
