Samsung made it clear during Mobile World Congress that their slim-line Ultra Edition flagship, the Samsung Soul, was ready to take its secondary, haptic-feedback display to Europe. Today, Samsung has announced that their 12.9mm thick Samsung Soul is ready to rock in Europe. As such, US-friendly frequency support for HSDPA, let alone GSM, is sadly left off the Samsung Soul’s spec-sheet.
But, Europeans will probably find the European-spec HSDPA (7.2Mbps), 5 megapixel camera with face detection, Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and image stabilization, FM radio with RDS, and that unique secondary Magical Touch display more than worth the €400 ($635 USD) asking price. It’s unclear if the Samsung Soul will make it Stateside with support for US-flavored frequencies.
Look for the Samsung Soul to drop in France, the UK, and Germany, with other countries to follow.
