Samsung AMOLED 12M Official: 12MP Camphone, 3x Optical Zoom

Is the AMOLED 12M (aka SCH-W880) a camera first, phone second? I mean, we've seen 12MP phones before, but it's the first with 3x optical-zoom, has a camera-like grip, and Touch Auto Focus controlled via the 800x480 3.3-inch AMOLED screen.

As a camera, the AMOLED 12M also has 720p video recording (30fps), image stabilisation, face detection, and a Xenon flash. But Samsung hasn't said too much about the phone side of things, even though it now says it will hit Korean stores next month.

From all reports, it's likely the phone will use the TouchWiz UI, and have UMTS/HSDPA connectivity, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a slot for microSD cards.

Samsung hasn't mentioned any plans for the phone outside of Korea, but it's early days yet. [Sony Hub and Crave Asia]
