Samsung SHW-M120S mobile phone, bringing Bluetooth 3.0 to Android

Samsung has been making some waves recently what with the release of Samsung Bada (its new mobile operating system), then the Samsung Wave, the first Bada phone and also the first to have Bluetooth 3.0 and also the first to have Wi-Fi 802.11 n. Now it seems Samsung is likely to reach a new first, an Android based smart phone that has Bluetooth 3.0. Yes the Samsung SHW-M120S cellphone is likely to be the first to reach that lofty goal and this information was found through a Qualified Design Listing with the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group).

Of course we have no details regarding pricing or availability at the moment but just from the technical specifications we can tell that the Samsung SHW-M120S is probably targeted towards South Korea because T-DMB (a mobile TV format most commonly used in, yup you guessed it, South Korea) is listed in the specs for the Samsung SHW-M120S smart phone.

Other known features for the Samsung SHW-M120S mobile phone include a 3.3″ WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, GSM roaming and HSDPA (which means 3G access), Wi-Fi and a 5 Mega Pixel camera with auto-focus. If that is not enough then the Samsung SHW-M120S Android based smart-phone handset will also have GPS (most likely with Google Maps of course) and an accelerometer and proximity sensor.

Bluetooth 3.0 is of course (for those of our readers who are uninformed) theoretically capable of file transfer speeds of up to 24 Mbps which means that it should be (again theoretically) capable of up to 3 MB/s data transfer rates which is pretty phenomenal considering Bluetooth 2.1 is only capable of 3 Mbps. That’s not even a 1 MB/s transfer rate, far less actually.

In any case, even with the limited details available regarding the Samsung SHW-M120S smart phone, it seems like a pretty good phone, firstly because it has some pretty interesting specifications and secondly because the Samsung SHW-M120S cellphone runs Android (and hopefully the latest one when it is available).

We sincerely hope to get our hands on a Samsung SHW-M120S mobile phone for testing as soon as possible.
