Samsung Presents the "Diva Collection"
2010 marks the year of the Diva...phone that is. Samsung has announced that two new phones will be hitting the market and they "will satisfy every woman’s fascination and desire for mobile phones." Named the Diva and the Diva Folder now called the Samsung Olivia, both phones are decked out with quilted back covers, because nothing says haute couture like quilts.
The dynamic duo also come with some unique features including a "Beauty Effect", a retouching function that makes photos "flawlessly beautiful. There's also the "Lomo Effect" that makes makes plain pics look like works of art (umm, okay). The phones also have a wish list, etiquette mode, and security features like "SOS Message" and "Fake Call" to save ladies for those uncomfortable bad date situations.
Now for the differences. The Diva (S7070), is "designed for women with exquisite taste, glowing sophistication and amazing personality." That being said, it comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera, the embossed quilted cover in pearl white, and a distinctive diamond-shaped button on the front.
If you're more of a showstopper than maybe you should check out the Olivia (S5150) . The phone is "for women who are always in the center of attention, wherever they are." The clamshell folder comes equipped with a hidden LED screen called "glittering LED" that lights up when a call comes through. There's also the quilted back, but this one comes in shiny, potentially blinding silver.
No word on the exact date when the 2010 Diva Collection will hit shelves. According to the press release it's scheduled to touch down in Europe in January, then Southeast Asia and China with no mention of the States.
