Full specifications are still a little scarce, but several online reports have said the square-edged phone – which seems to have a brushed aluminium backing – sports a 240 x 400 touchscreen display. The pictures also show several physical keys resting below the touchscreen.

The big disappointment is that the X810’s only said to be set-up for Edge connectivity, although it does support quad-band GSM.

The X810 has a 3.2Mp camera, Bluetooth, a USB port and a slot for Micro SD memory cards.

Bluetooth and quad-band GSM, but no 3G

The device is said to measure 104 x 52 x 14mm and weigh in at 100g. Standby time should last you up to one month, which isn't at all bad.

No details about a potential launch date or price have emerged yet. ®
