Samsung parades 'sleek' handset

The new Tocco?

Reducing security risks from open source software

Despite packing in much of the latest in mobile phone technology, Samsung’s most recent handset is far from bulky – in fact it’s quite sleek.

Samsung's Lucido: sleek

The Lucido – which apparently takes its name from the Italian translation of the word 'sleek' – is a 114 x 46 x 12mm candybar handset that looks deceptively similar to the firm’s existing Tocco Ultra Edition model.

Lucido has a 5Mp camera on board that’s able to spot both faces and smiles. Captured images and shot 15f/s video are stored on Micro SD memory cards of up to 8GB. Pictures can also be geo-tagged.

Web surfing’s possible thanks to the phone’s 7.2Mb/s-capable HSDPA 3G connection, while sites will be displayed on the 2.2in screen. The phone also supports quad-band GSM connections.

You’ll also find Bluetooth 2.1 on board.

Samsung said the Lucido will be available in UK stores from early next month, but a price hasn’t been given. ®
