Despite the global economic crisis, it seems that Samsung sees some potential in the luxury phone segment of the market as they’ve decided to push through with their S9402 mobile phone. It's now called the Ego GT-S9402 and looks a lot more sophisticated than the leaked shots we showed you guys in the past.
We’ve also now learned that it’s made of a liquidmetal composite which is said to be a lot better than titanium in almost every aspect and justify the additional zeros in its price tag. Aside from the fancy new material, most of the specs we mentioned in the past are still intact. It’s got the AMOLED display, 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, image stabilization, smile detection and LED flash, FM radio, tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth, 1GB internal memory, microSD card slot that supports up to 8GB additional storage, and the thing that’s most unique about it, active dual-SIM functionality.
It’s expected to retail for 1200 EUR (roughly $1500) but where it can be purchased is yet to be known. Anyway, with a lot of great bargains in the market today, we’re not at all that excited with this uber-expensive phone from Samsung, but hey, if you've got the cash, then the S9402 might just be the phone for you.
