MWC is closing in and Samsung is gradually revealing its wares for the biggest telecommunication show. Confirmed today is Monte (S5620) that is a translation of word ‘mountains’ in Italy, Spain and Portugal.
We saw live pictures of the phone couple of weeks back and unlike our speculation of it being a bada device, Monte runs the same proprietary OS but with TouchWiz 2.0 Plus UI. The exact changes to the UI are not known but it seems the sidebar widgets are gone. Though the TouchWiz phones had multiple home screens, the screens are now numbered along with an Edit button on the side that presumably allows to customize the home screens.
The feature set includes a 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen LCD with 16:9 aspect ratio, 3.2MP camera with face recognition, smile shot, GPS with geotag, Wi-Fi, 3G, 3.5mm audio jack, Smart Unlock, Exchange ActiveSync, Google Sync and of course Social Networking Service supporting various social networks and instant messengers.
Samsung will showcase the device at MWC 2010 next week.
