Philips Xenium K700 renders and specs fly in from Mother Russia

Philips makes cell phones? Sure the manufacturer is all but forgotten here in the US where handsets are concerned, but that apparently won’t stop it from churning out Sony Ericsson-like handsets such as the K700 for other markets. Truth be told, at the right carrier-subsidized price the K700 would likely fair pretty well here in the States. Purported specs:

  • 2.8-inch touchscreen TFT-LCD, 262,000 colors, 400 x 240 pixels
  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800/1900 MHz
  • Supported file formats RMBV, AVI, FLV, Divx, MP3, WMA, AC, FLAC, APE
  • Dedicated GPU / stereo
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with auto-focus and video recording
  • Up to 4 hours of video playback / Up to 25 hours of music playback in CD-quality
  • 48 MB of internal memory, support for MicroSD memory cards up to 8GB
  • Bluetooth 2.0 / USB 2.0 / FM-radio with RDS / jack 3.5 mm
  • Battery: 1000mA / h lithium-ion
  • Dimensions: 101 x 52 x 13 mm
  • Weight: 97 g
  • Standby time – up to 1 month, talk time – up to 8.5 hours

Not too shabby, really. No word yet on a release date, pricing or target markets but we have a feeling you’ll be hard-pressed to locate one of these puppies on North American soil any time soon. Hit the jump for another pair of renders.

Thanks, Vlad!
