Samsung Lucido to hit UK in April

Samsung has unveiled its latest feature-rich cameraphone in the form of the Lucido, which is set for release in April.

The candybar handset is intended to act as a replacement for the Samsung U800 and is equipped with a host of mid-range features.

These include a five megapixel camera, with anti-blur, face detection and smile capture technology, as well as a large 2.2 inch OLED screen.

The handset also offers HSDPA for fast downloads at up to 7.2Mb, Bluetooth compatibility, a media player, integrated Sat-Nav with A-GPS linked to Google Maps and an FM tuner.

Internal memory is 110MB, with a microSD card slot available to boost this further.

Samsung has yet to confirm which UK networks will be carrying the phone and has remained tight-lipped on price points.

However, a £1 million advertising campaign has been announced by Samsung to promote the Lucido, following its high-profile promotion of the Samsung Tocco Ultra.

Lucido is Italian for shiny and this is reflected, according to Samsung, in the metal detailing used in the handset.
