Samsung Telecommunications India, has just unveiled a new range of cell phones which has been dubbed “Mobile Tracker Phones”. The three new entry-level mobile phones from Samsung are the SGH- E250, SGH-X520 and SGH-C140.
The highlights of the new mobile phones launched by Samsung include new security features like Mobile Tracking (MT), emergency SMS, and privacy lock. This surely empowers consumers with security during mobility.
Speaking about the new security features of the newly launched Samsung mobile phones, Ryu Hyun Chul, MD, Samsung Telecommunications India, said, “Samsung understands Indian consumer needs and through our secured phones, we have tried to address three of the lager issues of mobile security i.e. securing mobile phones and preventing any untoward usage or incidents through MT, securing the safety of near and dear ones through emergency SMS, and securing the confidential data’s that are stored in that phone.”
The SGH-X520 mobile phone from Samsung is a very chic and slim phone, which comes in exotic colors such as Indigo Blue and Wine Red. The Samsung SGH-X520 mobile phone has features such as FM Radio, VGA Camera, and 65K color CSTN LCD screen that measures 4.8cm with a resolution of 128×160 pixels. Moreover, this mobile phone comes with an internal memory of 2.8MB.
The second phone launched by Samsung is the SGH-E250, which according to the company is the most fashionable slide-up style mobile phone available at a very low price. The SGH-E250 is embedded with a VGA camera and the latest multimedia features. Besides, it also sports a 5cm TFT screen, stereo FM radio, video recording, Bluetooth wireless support, 12MB internal memory and a MicroSD slot that is expandable up to 2GB.
Lastly, the SGH-C140 mobile phone from Samsung is an entry-level bar phone which has a compact and stylish design. It sports a 65K color LCD, a speaker phone meant for Handsfree communication, and 16 polyphonic ring tones. The Samsung SGH-C140 mobile phone has a screen that measures 3.8cm with a resolution of 128×128 pixels, and an internal memory of 700KB.
However, the most important features, which are common to all the three newly launched mobile phones from Samsung, are mobile tracking, emergency SMS and privacy lock. The Mobile tracking feature detects unauthorized usage of the mobile phone. When a different SIM card is inserted into any of the three newly launched mobile phones, the Mobile Tracker-enabled phone automatically sends an SMS to up to two numbers pre-defined by the original user revealing the IMEI number of the phone along with the new SIM number. This helps to retrieve the mobile phone back incase it lands up in wrong hands.
The emergency SMS feature allows the user to send an SMS for help when in trouble or when in some kind of an emergency. All the user has to do is push the volume key four times consecutively to activate the emergency feature. Once it is activated, it automatically sends an SMS to up to 10 predefined numbers with an accompanying text that read “Emergency. Help Plz”, after which the phone goes into ‘emergency receiving mode’ where the user can only receive calls from the 10 predefined numbers. Further, when they call back, the phone automatically receives the call with one vibration.
And the last feature common to the SGH-C140, SGH-X520, and the SGH-E250 is the privacy lock feature that enables users to lock all the files and folders inside the phone. This helps to safe guard information against unauthorized access.
All the three newly launched Samsung mobile phones SGH-C140, SGH-X520, and SGH-E250 are available at a MRP of Rs 2,579; Rs 6,149; and Rs 8,299 respectively.
