Hot on the heels of yesterday’s live video, the Samsung I7500 shows up again for a quick photo shoot. Higher quality than the first set of smudgy pictures we saw, this new set leaves no inch of Samsung’s first Android smartphone unseen, including all the ports, hardware buttons and a shot of the battery compartment.
One potential frustration, looking at the I7500 with its rear cover removed, is that the microSD card slot seems to only be accessible if you remove the battery. While many people are content to slot in as big a memory card as they can afford and forget about it (the I7500 supports up to 32GB cards, which are added to its 8GB of internal storage), others like the freedom to switch between or use external card readers, and this arrangement will come as an annoyance.
Nonetheless, it’s a handsome handset and we’re excited to get our hands on it when Samsung release it in Europe come June. The Samsung I7500 has a 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera and GPS/WiFi/HSPA; more details on specification here.
