“Everyone is incredibly excited about the handset,” said Samsung UK and Ireland general manager Derek Williamson. “The handset will be available through all channels but we’ve had some calls for exclusive colours from individuals.
“It’s a fantastic device with a new design that will set the standard. It has a more traditional look and feel to that of the Pixon, for example, but still has all the functionality of a top of the range handset.”
