Everyone and their grandmother rocks a camera phone these days. We’ve finally reached a point where even the cheapest of cheap entry-level handsets is at least packing a 1.3 megapixel shooter, allowing user to capture those dark, fuzzy, pixelated memories while on the go. Samsung’s freshly-announced handset however, the Pixon M8800, should most certainly not be lumped into the same category as these shoddy camera phones. In fact, it’s more of a “phone camera” than a camera phone. Sure it can make calls, send and receive messages, browse the web and handle a few games, but none of those features will even be a consideration for would-be owners. No, it’s the 8 megapixel camera and the wide array of top-notch photo and video features that take center stage here. In fact we’re going to list them separately in the specs since the rest is really just gravy:

  • 8 megapixel camera with autofocus
  • 16x digital zoom and Fast Shutter
  • Dual Power LED flash
  • ASR (Advanced Shake Reduction)
  • WDR (Wide Dynamic Range)
  • Face Detection, Smile Shot, Face Link (face tagging) and Photo memo
  • Auto Panorama Shot
  • Geotagging support (integrated GPS)
  • Photo Browser (Accelerometer Sensor, Tilt and flip, Sorting by Face/Time/Color/Folder)
  • 30 fps D1 (720 x 480) video capture
  • 120 fps (QGVA) slow motion video capture
  • MPEG4, WMV, DivX, XviD playback support
  • TV-out

That’s right people, we weren’t joking. The Pixon M8800 is strictly business when it comes to photos and video. The rest of the story; Meh.

  • Quad Band GSM (850/900/1800/1900) / GPRS / EDGE
  • WCDMA 2100 / HSDPA 7.2 Mbps connectivity (2100 only?! Fail)
  • 3.2″ 240 × 400 262K color WQVGA TFT display (262K colors?! Fail)
  • FM Radio with RDS
  • Music Player (MP3, AAC, e-AAC+, e-AAC+, WMA)
  • SRS (Surround Sound System) Virtual 5.1CH
  • DNSe (Digital Natural Sound engine)
  • Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0

So there you have it people – Samsung’s new Pixon M8800 phone camera. As far as a launch schedule goes, it will be available in France sometime near the middle of October and will then be released throughout Europe and Asia. As for US availability… Please, this is Samsung we’re talking about here.
