Samsung has stayed true to its word and created a white-edged version of its F700 smartphone.

Samsung's F700V: now with white trim

When the original black-edged handset was released late last year, the Korean giant said it also planned to create several different colour versions of the handset. Until now, consumers had seen very little in the way of a colour change.

Will scratches and dirt show up?

However, a white-edged version of the handset has now appeared on Vodafone’s Spanish website, as the F700V Blanco. It also has a soap-white back cover, instead of the traditional black and blue rear.

Unfortunately, the F700V’s technical specifications are unchanged from the original F700’s. It still sports a three-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, HSDPA 3G connectivity and a chatter life of about six hours.

The handset is available now on Vodafone’s Spanish website for €280 (£190/$280). A UK-specific release date or price hasn’t been named.
