Samsung unveils the Samsung G800 camera phone, which is the world’s first 5MP camera phone with 3x optical zoom (emphasis on optical zoom, 5MP camera phones are not unique anymore, see also the Samsung G600 launched this Summer). Update: The Sharp 910SH available through Softbank in Japan also has 5MP and 3x optical zoom and is apparently already available since a year. Thanks Paul S.
On the backside the Samsung G800 looks like a normal digital camera featuring a sliding lens cover.
Other camera features of the Samsung G800 include Xenon flash, panorama shots, multi shots, and macro shots, video editing functions and video sharing options to upload images and videos to the net.
The Samsung G800 slider features 3G/HSDPA connectivity and 2.4 inch screen. Measurements of the G800 are 101x51x19mm.
The Samsung G800 will be supported by a major advertising campaign across Europe and will be available in European countries from November.
