EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK!


We were fortunate enough to be given a chance to play with the phone ahead of the official announcement, which you can read here.

Samsung today officially announce their latest flagship phone; the Tocco Ultra Edition (aka S8300). It combines the best of both worlds, with a traditional keypad and large touchscreen display.

The handset comes with 3G/HSDPA support, GPS, 8-megapixel camera, memory expansion and the latest TouchWiz user interface, already seen on the original Tocco (F480) and Pixon (M8800).

The phone should be released by the end of March on most, if not all, network operators in the UK. At first it will be available in platinum red/black, but other models including exclusive limited edition designs will follow later in the year.

The Tocco Ultra Edition will also be released around the world, with different naming (Ultra Touch) in certain territories.
