Last month we all got a nice taste of Samsung leak love when some initial details about the L870 made the rounds. To refresh your memory, it looks hot. A Symbian slider running the latest version of S60 with a metal face, 3 megapixel camera and a quad band GSM radio (or so we thought). We also knew that this puppy was going to be nice and fit, sporting dimensions of 102 × 50 x 13.55 mm. Now it’s looking like the L870 will also be home to an interactive directional pad, a front-facing secondary camera and some more goodies although the quad band radio looks like it will now be tri band alongside 2100 UMTS. Some more specs:

  • Tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900), 2100 UMTS, 3.6Mbs HSDPA connectivity
  • Symbian 9.3 S60 3.2 OS
  • 2.3″ 260K color QVGA 240 × 320 pixel display
  • 3 megapixel rear camera, VGA front camera for video calls
  • FM radio with RDS
  • USB 2.0 and Bluetooth 2.0
  • microSDHC support

Typical Samsung. Take the juicy handsets and make sure that GSM 850 and US-compatible UMTS is omitted. Other regions can expect to see this Soul-like smartphone announced next month at Communic Asia or even sooner. For the rest of us here in the US it looks like it pretty much doesn’t matter anymore.
