Its lens cover, which resembles that of a digicam, protects the lens from scratches even as it enhances the phone’s looks. The slider phone design also incorporates 2.4-inch 262K color display with QVGA resolution.

The Samsung G800 looks like a sleek and stylish digital camera on one side and a fashionable mobile phone on the other side.

With a November release, expect a sustained advertising campaign to drive not only public interest in the phone but also its price.
