This week at CeBIT in Germany, Samsung is showcasing a 7-megapixel camera phone that blurs the line between mobile handsets and digital cameras. In fact, the SCH-V770 resembles a still camera more than it does a phone. It includes a 3x optical zoom lens and 2-inch TFT display above a dial keypad.
Samsung has also added photography features not found on most camera phones, including manual focus and controllable shutter speeds. Like most new consumer handsets, the SCH-V770 includes an MP3 player for music playback. Samsung has not announced pricing or a release date, but said last month it expects only a 5-megapixel phone to reach the United States this year.
