Seoul , Korea - August 2, 2006 – Samsung, a leading provider of mobile phones and telecom systems, is reinforcing its technology leadership with the launch of HSDPA handset (model: SGH-Z560). As a market innovator, Samsung has introduced the world’s first HSDPA phone (model: SGH-ZV50) into France and Italy in early June. With the launch of a slim HSDPA phone which was unveiled at 3GSM 2006, Samsung will continue to deliver new HSDPA models in various styles and features.

The Z560 is slim yet has a wide display for the convenient use of multimedia functions at a very high speed data. It uses a 2.3” QVGA 262K LCD to ensure a clear and sharp screen image.
