The smartphone will be sold in Deep Blue and Pearl White colors. The smartphone will break cover in early 2014 according to Samsung for an undisclosed price.

Some of the software features on the smartphone include Screen Curtain which hides the content on the display for privacy. Other features like a voice guided camera, instant voice recording application and the ability to read text through the camera and read it out loud (Optical Scan) are present on the handset.
