Samsung Flagship Phone for 2008 Is Soul

No, I’m not talking about the song stylings of people like Corrine Bailey Rae, nor am I going into some sort of discussion concerning the circumstance of the afterlife. Instead, the Soul is Samsung’s flagship mobile phone for 2008, wrapping up everything that the Korean manufacturer stands for in the world of cellular phones.

Naturally, the Samsung Soul is a remarkably slim slider phone and that’s why it easily earns its spot among the Ultra Edition series that we’ve come to expect from Sammy. The 2.2-inch QVGA display is surrounding what appears to a brushed aluminum finish, but underneath is not your standard five-way navigator. Instead, controls are done through a touch capacitance navigation panel, not unlike that found on the LG Venus. These navigation icons change according to the applications being used.

The rest of the goods are pretty impressive too. For starters, the Samsung Soul comes equipped with a five megapixel camera that boasts autofocus, face detection, and an image stabilizer, all features that you may expect on a standalone digital camera. Other specs include Web 2.0 tools (Gmail, mobile blogging, RSS reader), quad-band GSM/EDGE, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, Bluetooth 2.0, FM radio with RDS, MP3 playback, and a microSD expansion slot. The Bang & Olufsen digital power ampilifer brings some serious sound to the table too.

Look for the Samsung Soul to launch in European markets this April.
