The Samsung Alias 2 (also known as the SCH-u750) is a cell phone made by Samsung. The phone is only available in metallic gray. It features a dual-hinge design that can be opened in portrait or landscape style. Arguably, the most notable feature of the Alias 2 is its E Ink-based keyboard. In landscape mode it features a QWERTY keyboard and VCAST music on the Verizon Wireless network within Australia and the USA.

The phone runs on Verizon Wireless's digital and Ev-DO networks. The Samsung Alias 2 was released on May 11, 2009.

Its external features are a postage stamp sized front display, touch sensitive music control buttons and a 2.0-megapixel camera. On the right side there is the power button, a "hold" button, and a microSD card slot. On the left, there is a Voice Activation button, an up/down volume rocker button, a headphone jack, and proprietary charger/data transfer port. Opened in portrait mode, a standard numerical dialing pad along with two soft keys, send and end keys, a camera button, a voice command button, and four-directional buttons with an OK key in the center are all available. Opened horizontally, the full QWERTY keypad is usable and a simple button press allows switching between the various alphanumeric functions. Stereo speakers are mounted on either side of the 2.6-inch screen. The u750 is compatible with all Verizon services, such as VCAST. It is also equipped with voice recognition, text message dictation, and two flash-based display themes, as well as the standard red Verizon Wireless themes. The phone was discontinued in October 2010.

Series[edit]

The Samsung Alias 2 was the successor of the original Samsung Alias, which did not feature the unique "magic" e-ink display. The keys were cramped up with all the functions of the e-ink display, which disappointed many users. After the Alias 2, the Samsung Zeal took over. The complete phone is unchanged from Alias 2 to the Zeal, except for the shape of the camera, which changed from a square to an oval.
