SEOUL, South Korea — Samsung Electronics said it has developed the first 10-megapixel camera phone, that the company asserts could usher in a new round of mobile convergence.

Samsung said its SCH-B600 camera phone will be disclosed during the one-week CeBIT 2006 show in Hanover, Germany, which started Thursday (March 9).

The 10-megapixel camera features a 3x optical zoom, 5x digital zoom and a 1/2,000th of a second shutter speed. Samsung claims it is the first camera phone to adopt an auto-focus, fill-light function to deliver higher-resolution pictures.

The phone is equipped with a 2-inch, 16-million-pixel color TFT LCD, supports satellite digital multimedia broadcasting services and comes with a dual-face and dual-speaker system. It also includes TV-out and MP3 player functions.

Earlier this week, Samsung unveiled what it said is the first smart phone equipped with an 8-Gbyte hard disk drive. The SGH-i310 combines a phone, a digital camera and an MP3 player that can store about 2,000 songs.
