The new Samsung i7110 is slim, sexy, Symbian-powered and it hates Americans. Huh? Ok, we made that last part up, but this is yet another instance of a high-end Samsung phone that we would have loved to get our hands on if not for the all-too-common lack of US-appropriate 3G spectra. Samsung, dude, you deal with US approval on tons of your crappier other phones and a quick radio tweak to ready a US version is hardly complicated. What’s up? Is America unworthy of your high-end feats? Can we not handle the awesomeness that is your upper class handsets? Nokia came around after a while and sure, it hasn’t done much for its US market share but Nokia has other problems. Just try it. Once, for your pals here at BGR. Make a hot high-end phone, toss an 850/1900 3G radio in there and see what happens. Anyway, here are the specs for the Samsung something-or-other that will be available sometime in some markets somewhere:

  • Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Dual band HSDPA 3.6 Mbps, 900 / 2100 MHz
  • 2.6 inch AMOLED screen with 262K colors and 240 x 320 pixels
  • Accelerometer
  • Optical mouse
  • GPS
  • WiFi, DLNA
  • DNSe 2.0
  • 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, Smile Shot, Blink Shot and VGA video recording at 30 fps
  • FM Radio with RDS, FM transmitter
  • Bluetooth 2.0 & USB 2.0
  • 50MB of internal memory
  • MicroSD & SDHC card support
  • 118 x 52 x 12.9 mm 1200 mAh battery
  • Talk-time: up to 11 h / 6 h (EDGE / WCDMA)
