Samsung SPH-M8400: WiMax, AMOLED and only in Korea

Time for us to play "What really cool phone is being released overseas that we'll never get here!", one of our favorite games.

This time the lucky country is Korea, who is getting Samsung SPH-M8400 aka they need a better name for it.

To the point, here are the specs:

  • WiMax (WiBro)
  • 3.7" AMOLED WVGA
  • WM6.5
  • 5MP AF camera
  • Digital Mobile TV
  • WCDMA, WiFi, Bluetooth

Actually, though the fine folks at AkiHabaraNews liken it to a worthy competitor to the HD2, even we scoff at the notion.  No, this is a worthy competitor to the Omnia 2...in fact, it's very similar sans the 4G support.  Still, it does look pretty nice.

  • I think I prefer the slightly slimmer version on the right of the picture. Which is also good be I'm right handed...
  • Nice looking phone, shame its only in Korea, as you said...
  • I honestly don't understand why Samsung is the only manufacturer using AMOLED screens. Not only do they include it, but the rest of their specs is typically amazing too while keeping the price typical of the industry ($700).
