Samsung has introduced a new handset which it claims will be among the most powerful on the market.
The company said that the new Samsung Jet would use a processor running at up to 800MHz, and offer multi-touch support through the TouchWiz 2.0 interface, a sharper screen quality and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync support.
Samsung hopes that the Jet will be able to take advantage of the growing demand for computing power in handsets to keep up with more complex software offerings.
Apple recently beefed up the processing power for its iPhone 3G S handset, pushing the speed from 400MHz to 600MHz.
Samsung hopes that the device will appeal to buyers in an increasingly crowded smartphone market.
"Samsung Jet provides a seamless and unrivalled mobile experience as a result of our accumulated technology leadership and pursuit of perfect craftsmanship," said J K Shin, executive vice president and head of mobile communications for Samsung.
"Our aim is to deliver ultimate satisfaction to our consumers, and I believe that Samsung Jet answers the calls of today's mobile users who want smart features and an easy-to-use user interface."
