Samsung slider handset en-route?

Potential release next week

Samsung may use next week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona as the launch pad for its latest slider handset, which according to rumour, has been dubbed as the G810.

Although the manufacturer’s keeping quiet about the handset’s existence for now, word on the web is that the slider handset, which is already being compared to Nokia’s N95, sports a 2.6in display and a five-megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom.

Bluetooth 2.0 with Enhanced Data Rate is on-board for short-range data transfers, but the G810’s also though to include 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and incorporate HSDPA 3G connectivity at up to 3.6Mb/s. Users may get around 150MB of on-board memory, in addition to a Micro SD memory card slot.

Since Samsung hasn't said a squeak about the phone’s existence for now, there’s no official word on pricing or availability. But, speculation suggests that the handset pitched at around €580 (£430/$860).

If Samsung does unveil the G810 at the Barcelona event, then it’ll have to share its limelight with LG’s KF510 handset launch, which is a three-megapixel and touch-sensitive slider handset.
