The leading provider of mobile phone and telecommunication equipment, Samsung has announced the launch of its new Soul, which is the new premium multimedia cellphone in the Samsung Ultra Edition line, featuring a 2.2-inch (320 x 240 pixel) QVGA TFT display, MagicTouch interface by DaCP, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, face detection, image stabilizer and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) optimizer.


“We believe that Soul is the answer for today’s style-conscious consumers, excited by outstanding quality design and performance,” said Geesung Choi, President of Samsung’s Telecommunication Business. “Soul is set to continue the success of past Ultra Edition handsets, such as D900 and U600, and will further enhance Samsung’s leadership in the premium phone category.”

According to the company, “Soul also offers a new series of graphic user interfaces (GUI) providing three different options for users. With this Thematic UI, users can change the UI according to their personal tastes. Additionally, users can create their own skins with the on-handset User Created Skin (UCS) setup. Display skins are customizable with various options such as background images, fonts and colors.” It’s cool, right?

The new 3G, HSDPA-enabled Samsung Soul mobile phone which measures just 12.9mm thin will be available in European countries from April 2008.
