SEOUL, South Korea – Deleted web pages from the Samsung website were found to contain information regarding three unannounced phones: the S3850 Corby II, Nari E2230 and Caruso E2330.
The GSMArena team dug up Google’s cache on once-indexed but now-deleted web pages from the official Samsung Mobile website. Revelations count with minor handsets which hadn’t met the public’s eye, as they weren’t supposed to, but show what the market might see in the coming months, or as soon as next week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Surprisingly, neither of the handsets, being low-end phones, count with Google Android as their operating system. Samsung limited them to simply feature-phones, and runs its proprietary operating system on them. The S3850 Corby II, for one, at least runs the touchscreen-intended TouchWIZ user interface.
The handset above-mentioned counts with a touchscreen display with supposedly QVGA resolution (240×320 pixels), Java support, possibly a 3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth and even a microSD memory card slot.
The Corby series is synonymous with success, as Samsung sold three million units of the S3650 Corby in less than four months from its market release. Affordable touchscreen-based handsets continue to make millions, and could begin to flood the market from this year.
