Samsung P520

The Samsung SGH-P520 fashion phone is also more commonly referred to as the Samsung Armani phone. The P520 was revealed in September 2007 at an Armani fashion show and was made available to consumers two months later.

The stylish Armani phone comes in a credit card-sized form factor which Samsung calls a “card phone”. The P520, which was preceded by the SGH-P310 card phone, measures 3.5 x 2.1 x 0.5 inches and weighs in at 3.6 ounces.

With its small form factor, the P520 comes with only five physical buttons: the call and end keys on the front, the volume rocker on the side and a dedicated camera button also on the side. All the rest of the functions of the phone are accessed through the 2.6 inch, 262k-color QVGA (320x240) resolution touchscreen.

Key Features

In addition to carrying the world-famous name of Giorgio Armani, which is prominently emblazoned on the P520’s face, the other main selling point of the phone is Samsung’s award-winning user interface called the Croix (French for “cross”). The interface, which won an IF Communication Design Award in 2007, features a cross-based navigation style as implied by its name. Navigation through menus and other features involve vertical and horizontal movements through the interface. The Croix interface on the Armani phones also features icons exclusive to the P520.

The Armani phone features a 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash that snaps pictures up to a maximum of 2048 x 1536 pixels and shoots videos at CIF(352 x 288 pixels) resolution. Also included are an audio player (MP3, AAC, AAC+), voice memo functions, organizer and a document viewer supporting .pdf, .doc, .ppt, and .xls formats.
