Samsung M8800 Bresson appears, strangely named Pixon after all

25 Sep, 2008

The 8 megapixel full touchscreen Samsung M8800 seems to have been announced today - rather quietly in fact. And it's already been previewed by a Russian team, which provides some nice images along the way.

The Samsung M8800, be it Bresson or Pixon, is the second 8 megapixel handset by Samsung, following the Symbian-powered Samsung i8510 INNOV8. The Samsung M8800 however is not a smartphone and has no keyboard but a 3.2-inch touchscreen display. The Samsung M8800 has the same TouchWiz interface as the Samsung Omnia and Samsung F480 Tocco, however this time they've added a Weather and Google widgets.

Unfortunately, the lack of Wi-Fi functionality is a bit of a downer and would make it hard to compete with the rivaling LG KC910 Renoir.

Here's the official Samsung promo video of the Samsung M8800:

The Samsung M8800 is set to start shipping as early as 10 November 2008 at a starting price of 550 euro (800 US dollars).
