January 1, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


The third edition of Android-based handsets from the Samsung assembly line has made it to China. The Korean major has unveiled its new Android phone christened i899 on the China Telecom network.

The i899 comes with a 3.2-inch AMOLED display, but uses a resistive touchscreen. The handset is said to have been built only with China Telecom, the Communist nation’s third largest carrier, in mind and would support CDMA/EVDO networks. The i899 would hop on to the China Telecom network and would also have the capability to support WiFi, a feature now absent in many of the Chinese smartphones.

A strong 800MHz processor powers the i899. On the storage department, the handset has incorporated 512MB space, which can be further expanded with a 32GB microSDHC memory card. The i899 also sports a 3.2 mega pixel camera, complete with autofocus and flash options. Other notable features include GPS, DivX support, 3.5mm headset jack, 1440 mAh battery and the other regulars.

Samsung has preferred to keep the 126-gram handset slim and the size specs read 116.5 x 56.4 x 12.8 mm. Expected to be rolled out in the initial days of the New Year, the i899 could be picked up by Chinese smart phone enthusiasts as soon as it hits retails stores. We are now waiting to hear more on what number Samsung would attach to the price tag.
