Samsung partnered with industrial designer Jasper Morrison to create the SGH-E590 mobile phone.
The stylish E590 comes in simple contours and clean lines which comprise this compact bar design. Jasper Morrison put one side phone keypad and LCD screen while the other side is outfitted with dedicated camera functions, which is not really something new.
The design of the SGH-E590 is a bit too old-fashioned for my taste. The highlight of the phone is the 3MP camera with auto focus, half shutter and panorama shot. Other features of the E590 include 1.79 inch screen with 220x220px resolution, Bluetooth 2.0, 90MB internal memory and GPRS Class 10 / EDGE / Tri-Band (900/1800/1900) connectivity.
Measurements of the E590 are 94x42x13.5mm and the weight is 66g.
“The SGH-E590 is a very pragmatic work of art that reflects the synergy between Samsung and Jasper Morrison. We have teamed up to satisfy our users with high-performance technology and emotional design.” says Geesung Choi, President of Samsung’s Telecommunication Network business. He added, “Through the partnership with renowned designers, Samsung will strengthen our design power to bring design excellence to our customers.”
The Samsung E590 is available in two colors, noble black and snow silver, and will be launched in Europe, China and South East Asia in June.
