The Samsung/Armani Night Effect

Sporting a black hue and 'Night Effect' codename, details of the M7500 handset have cropped up on the websites of several online retailers, including Expansys and The Link – part of DSGi, the group formerly known as Dixons.

The M7500 has an electric blue light strip – a little like those found underneath boy-racer cars – running around almost all its edges. The line’s broken on two sides though, once by the all essential “Emporio Armani” logo and another time by music shortcut keys.

This coloured bar’s designed to change colours according to what’s happening on your phone. For example, a pink light could notify you of an incoming call, whilst a green light could signify an email invite to Calvin Klein’s next catwalk show.

GA’s famous eagle files prominently underneath the phone’s 3.2-megapixel camera, and another GA logo sits underneath the talker’s “mineral glass display”.

Data storage is possible thanks to a Micro SD memory card slot and the phone also supports data transfers over Bluetooth and mini USB. Pictures can be printed using PictBridge.

The phone's enabled for web access with its HSDPA 3G connectivity and will link you into quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge networks too.

Samsung’s Armani M7500 is expected to grace the world’s catwalks in November, but a price hasn’t been located yet.
