Korean carrier KT Telecom has announced pricing and availability for the world’s first 1.5GHz dual-core smartphone, the TAKE Janus KM-S200. Based around Qualcomm’s MSM8260 processor with 1GB of RAM and a 4.3-inch qHD 960 x 540 touchscreen, the smartphone runs Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread.

There’s an 8-megapixel camera on the back, with autofocus and a flash, together with a 1.3-megapixel camera up front for video calls. Other specs include HSUPA roaming support, SRS WOW HD audio, 1080p HD full HD recording and playback, GPS, an internal DMB-TV tuner and 16GB of integrated memory, along with a microSD card slot.

The whole thing measures in at 128.5 x 65 x 9.8 mm, which puts it just in-between the Galaxy S II and Sensation in terms of thickness, and will be available in black, white or two-tone black & white. Lucky South Koreans will be able to get their hands on it for the equivalent of around $740 SIM-free.

    If it performs as good as its specs this thing deserves a ‘GEE-ZUS!’

    Ever heard of Pantech Vega Racer? That should be the first 1,5GHz dual-core smartphone. Funny enough, it features Qualcomm’s MSM8660 processor, so it should be even more powerful – and it was announced nearly two weeks ago.

  • I’ll but it too!!
