Samsung B7610 Louvre with AMOLED touchscreen emerges

A new image purporting to be of Samsung's B7610 "Louvre" Windows Mobile smartphone has emerged, complete with the latest version of the handset's spec-list.  The Louvre is believed to have a 3.5-inch AMOLED WVGA display, 5-megapixel autofocus camera with image stabilization, and 3G 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity.

There's also WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS, an FM radio with RDS and a microSDHC slot content with cards up to 32GB.  Samsung have also apparently squeezed in an accelerometer and 1GB ROM, together with a standard mini-USB 2.0 port (a welcome change from their previous proprietary connector) despite the B7610's overall dimensions of 112 x 58 x 16 mm.

At launch, which is expected to be roughly July on Orange Business and SFR Business Team in France, the Louvre will run Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro with Samsung's own graphical overlay.  However it will be upgradeable to Windows Mobile 6.5 once that OS is released.  Pricing is tipped to be between €250 and €500 ($352-704).
