Samsung Lucido smartphone

Samsung has unveiled the Lucido - its latest smartphone, which features GPS navigation and a 5Mp camera.

According to the Samsung, the 114x46x12mm Lucido handset, utilises the styling made popular by the manufacturer's Tocco mobile phone.

The 5Mp camera combines with the GPS to offer geo-tagging and also benefits from an LED flash along with auto-focus, face-detection and smile-shot technology that closes the shutter as soon as it detects the subject has smiled. The camera is also capable of capturing video at 15 frames per second (fps).

The handset has a 110MBinternal memory but supports microSD memory cards up to 8GB.

The Samsung Lucido is expected to be made available in April. No pricing or network details have been made available yet.
