It's been a hot minute since we've heard what's up with the Samsung U550, successor to the U540 and little cuz to the magnificently... uh, gleamy U700 Gleam. Don't fret, though; turns out it's still in the mix and tracking for a release in the not-too-distant future. Our tipster points out that the new model fixes a niggle with the U540 -- a strangely shaped d-pad -- and may feature a 2 megapixel camera. Stay tuned!

[Thanks, anonymous tipster]
