The Samsung SCH-B600 10MP camera phone was first unveiled at CeBIT back in March, and the company has moved fast to live up to their October launch date.

The SCH-B600 is both thinner and lighter than their 7MP SCH-V770 camera phone despite having a better camera. Samsung claims that the SCH-B600 offers the same amount of accuracy and picture detail that a 10 megapixel standalone camera might have, including a 3× optical zoom and a 5× digital zoom. Other features include integrated mobile TV and satellite service, an LED auto focus, white balance controls, manual focus, rapid picture taking and interval picture-taking functions.

The large 2.2-inch color TFT LCD display supports up to 16 million colors and is able to playback recorded movie clips in QVGA resolution with up to a 30 frames-per-second rate. You can decide to save the movie clips to the removable MMCmicro memory card or to the phone’s internal memory.

The SCH-B600 is currently only available in Korea.

Actual phone specifications are below:
