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.


  1. 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.

  2. I have this phone and my bff has sky vega racer theyre both korean phones and first and second dualcore proxessor phones so basically theyre li ke twins lol i prefer both

  3. How to upgrade my kt tech s200? Because I’m trying to update using my phone regarding the sw upgrade but it doens’t upgrade and it always says FAILED.
