Thought to be code-named 'Brensson' and labelled the Pixon M8800, if and when it hits the shops over here, Samsung’s second eight-megapixel snapper looks set to sport HSDPA 3G connectivity and quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge network support.

The phone may have a 3.2in touchscreen that’s able to display all your images, which should be well framed and crystal clear because the snapper is complemented by auto-focus, face recognition and shake reduction.

Image geo-tagging has also been mentioned, and video capture will be possible on the M8800 too.

Pictures, videos and music will be stored onto Micro SD memory cards for easy portability onto other devices, while Bluetooth will also be on-board for short range data transfers. An accelerometer allows the onscreen display to be flipped between horizontal and vertical layouts.

Other nifty features thought to be included are handwriting recognition and an FM radio with RDS.

According to a report by TechTree, Samsung’s M880 will be priced at $980 (£545/€683) and be launched next month.
