Each packing 80MB of embedded memory

Samsung has unveiled two mobile phones that are the slimmest of their kind, according to the company.

The SGH-X820 is both slender at 6.9mm and light at 66g, but it still manages to pack a 2Mp (megapixel) digital camera. The triband GSM phone comes in a chocolate-bar form factor. It will be available in Russia from June and then in other European markets.

The SGH-D900 is the thinnest slider-type phone available, Samsung said. It is 13mm thick and weighs 93g. There's a 3Mp digital camera and the phone is a quadband model.

Both phones can play music in the MP3, AAC, AAC plus and Windows Media Audio formats. They come with Mpeg4 and H.263 video recording capability, Bluetooth, USB and PictBridge printing software. Each has 80MB of embedded memory.

The X820 has a 1.9in screen with 176x220 resolution, while the D900 has a 2.1in screen with 240x320 resolution.

The phones will be on show at the Sviaz ExpoComm 2006 exhibition, which runs from 10 to 13 May in Moscow. Pricing was not announced.
