BARCELONA—Samsung Telecommunications America and T-Mobile USA, along with photographer and model Helena Christensen, officially unveiled the Samsung Memoir, the touch-screen phone with an 8-megapixel camera. It’s available exclusively through T-Mobile USA beginning Feb. 25 and will sell for $249.99 with a two-year contract, $50 rebate and qualifying data plan.
Christensen was the first to gain hands-on experience with the Memoir, using it as her official phone and camera to shoot images during her travels around New York and Barcelona, the companies said.
The built-in 8-megapixel camera comes with digital imaging features, including Xenon flash, CMOS auto focus and 16x digital zoom. Accessing the Memoir’s camera menu, users can adjust the brightness and flash, change the default destination of images, select a timer and zoom in or out.
Users also can record video for up to 60 minutes depending on the resolution.
