Today another 8 megapixel mobile handset by Samsung company became official. Some Russian team already previewed the full touchscreen Samsung M8800 and provides us some nice photos of the handset.

However the name of the handset which was called Bresson before, is now told as M8800 Pixon. As we have already told you it is second mobile phone after Symbian-powered Samsung i8510 INNOV8 to have a 8 megapixel camera. However it is now for sure that M8800 is not a smartphone without a keyboard but has a large 3.2″ touchscreen display. The interface of the handset is what we are familiar with in Omnia and F480 Tocco, the TouchWiz interface. The only difference is the addition of Weather and Google widgets to the interface.

Although we don’t have a smartphone on the podium, feature list is very crowded one, as follows:

* Built-in GPS receiver
* Built-in Accelerometer
* DivX playback
* Quad-band GSM, tri-band HSDPA
* 107.9×54.6×14.9mm, 110 g
* 3.2-inch touch screen display (240 x 400 pixels)
* 8 megapixel camera, auto focus, face recognition with smile detection and blink detection, WDR (wide dynamic range), ASR (advanced shake reduction), GPS geotagging, ISO 1600, WVGA (720×480 pixels) and VGA (640 x 480 pixels) @30fps video recording
* FM radio with RDS
* microSD card slot
* Bluetooth
* Landscape virtual QWERTY keyboard
* Handwriting recognition
* ShoZu integration – direct image and video upload
* Office document viewer

Only negative feature is the lack of Wi-Fi which is also bad reputation against its rival LG KC910 Renoir.

As for the release date, the Samsung M8800 Pixon will be available as soon as 10 November 2008 and its price will be around 550 euros.
