The Samsung F480 (also known as Tocco in many English-spoken countries, or Player Style in France) is a touch-screen mobile phone announced in February 2008 and released in May 2008 by Samsung Mobile.[1] The F480 is available from Orange, T-Mobile, 3, Virgin Mobile, Telstra, Optus, and O2 mobile carriers under both contract and prepaid plans. Models without a SIM lock are also available. It comes in three colours: black, pink, and gold. The devices uses a 2.8 in (7.1 cm) HAPTIC TFT touch screen that can render 256,000 colors.

The phone operates on the GSM and EDGE standards at 900, 1800, and 1900 MHz bands.

The F480 supports 3G HSDPA data at 7.2 megabits per second on the 850 MHz band. It offers a WAP 2.0-compliant web browser, and uses MIDP 2.0 as its Java support platform. This allows installing the Opera Mini browser, which is more up-to-date and advanced than the native browser. The latter is still good for quick access to the mobile Internet.

The phone features a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus, face recognition, smile mode, 4× digital zoom, and video recording capability. It allows users to edit photos and videos, and add effects to photos. The device also contains music-recognition software. With up-to-date firmware, it can support 16-gigabyte MicroSD cards. Bluetooth support is included.

The F480 uses a 1,000 mAh lithium-ion battery that provides up to three hours of talk time or 250 hours of standby time.
