Samsung officially announced five new super-slim handsets today. From left-to-right we see the 0.59-inch SGH-Z510 which Samsung claims is the world's slimmest W-CDMA (3G) handset, the SGH-Z540 3G clamshell which (gasp) we haven't actually seen before, the love-it-or-hate-it vintage-TI-calculator styled SGH-P300, and finally two tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE SGH-D800 and D820 sliders. All five models feature MP3/AAC playback, Bluetooth, MPEG-4 video recording, and a 1.3 megapixel shooter. The D800, Z510 and Z540 also feature WMA playback with 80MB, 138MB, and 150MB embedded storage respectively while the D820 is quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, packs in 73MB, a MicroSD slot, and even, er, TV-out if our Babelrean is working correctly. Oddly, the P300 is rumored to have 90MB of flash storage yet there is no mention of any storage in the press release. All models should be available in Europe later this year. Pics of the P300 after the break with a slightly different key layout than we've seen previously.
