Say hello to the new SCH-W740 “Haptic 8M”, the latest in Samsung’s line of high megapixel camera phone offerings. Destined for the Korean market, the touchscreen phone sports a 3.3-inch touchscreen display with 480×800 resolution, TouchWiz user interface, GPS, Bluetooth, 3.5G HSDPA, DMB tuner and an 8 megapixel camera with auto focus and face tagging. The face tagging feature allows you to make a call and send a text message directly from your captured image. Pretty sweet! Though the phone does not appear to be headed for the US market, perhaps the specifications and the face tagging feature will be wrapped up into another phone that is headed for the US — Samsung Memoir 2 anyone? The Haptic 8M will launch soon in Korea for 900,000₩ ($645).
