Nothing has been revealed about the mystery device’s technical specifications and it’s still unknown if the image is authentic - or simply a rendering by a Bada enthusiast.

Based on what you see above, though, the Bada phone surely boasts a touch-sensitive screen.

Bada is expected to become the OS of choice for Samsung’s mid-range phones. While the first Samsung Bada-based device could, according to a report by website GSM Helpdesk, be unveiled during Q1 2010. ®
