Samsung gets own models confused
Tocco Ultra Edition becomes Ultra Touch
MWC Keeping track with the latest mobile phones is tricky, especially when several new devices launch each day. But Samsung appears to have gotten slightly confused with its own mobile models.
Samsung's Ultra Touch: looks identical to the "flasghip" Tocco Ultra Edition
Last week, the firm announced that the Tocco Ultra Edition would be its “flagship handset for 2009”.
However, the phone failed to make an appearance in Samsung’s latest 2009 handset brochure but – weirdly – appears to have been renamed the Samsung Ultra Touch.
Despite looking like the Tocco Ultra Edition’s long-lost twin, the Ultra Touch also sports all the same specifications.
For example, it has an 8Mp camera and is capable of 30f/s video capture. It also boasts 7.2Mb/s HSDPA, quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge and Assisted GPS.
A Micro SD memory card slot gives users up to 16GB of storage and files can be moved around using Bluetooth 2.1 or USB.
And, as is that wasn’t proof enough, the two phones also both measure exactly 110 x 51.5 x 12.7mm.
Both phones have the same specs
We could run you through the entire specifications of the
Tocco Ultra Edition Ultra Touch, but instead you could just read our earlier coverage - because both phones are actually the same model, aren’t they, Samsung?
Presumably, the Ultra Touch is now Samsung’s flagship phone for 2009. ®
