We talked about Samsung S8000 this April and we discover together his secret specifications. Nothing was official then, but now we know for sure all about this new mobile device released by Samsung.

The new gadget, known also as “Jet” comes with a 3.1″ Amoled touchscreen display and 16 M colors support. The sensitive display is equipped with a black glass and the surface around the buttons is made by a matte material. On the right side of the phone are the hold/lock and the cube/shutter buttons, while on the left we find the volume rocker. The top of the phone has the 3.5 mm audio jack and the microUSB port-for charging and connectivity option.

On the back we discover the 5 megapixel camera along with auto focus camera with dual-LED flash options. At the bottom is a small loudspeaker grill, unfortunately with no stereo speakers.

The 800 Mhz CPU provides a great experience through Touch-Wiz user interface. You can move the icons/widgets from the home screen or you can navigate into the menu very easy, just using your finger. Applications such as: Media Gate, Motion Gate, File Browser, Gallery, Music Player will be very helpful from now on.

Internet experience is very different with this phone, WebKit-based Dolfin web browser comes with Flash and Java support and even an built-in AdBlocker.

    This phone looks great. I plan to take it, but my concern is divx codec. Does it support all divx files? I had bad experience with divx codecs on previous phones, since I had to convert files.
