The Samsung i85 measures only 3.74 x 2.42 x 0.8 inches but it packs 8 megapixels, a 3.0-inch LCD screen and 5x optical zoom. Slim and stylish with a brushed aluminum body, the i85 is also a portable media player that can play movies, music videos, television shows and MP3 music on-the-go.

Its non-protruding 5x optical zoom (35mm film equivalent: 36~180mm) NV lens boasts a maximum shutter speed of 1/2,000 sec and a super macro focus of 1cm.

As a PMP, the i85’s bundled Digimax Converter software converts MPEG, AVI, MOV, WMV and ASF files for viewing on the i85. For music on-the-go, the software can also convert MP3 and WAV audio files in several simple steps. The software also allows users to view subtitles, adjust the screen size and crop and stretch the image to fit the screen as desired.

It also features Samsung’s i-movie mode, a high-resolution SVGA (800×592) MPEG-4 video, and advanced editing controls. More: Samsung ASR image stabilization, ISO 1600 sensitivity and 256MB of onboard memory with SDHC expansion.
