The phone has a 3.2" color display and incorporates a touch screen/touch pad interaction system and a slide-out QWERTY key pad. The phone contains a 3 megapixel camera. Furthermore, the handset is HSDPA and Bluetooth 2.0 compatible and possesses USB and microSD memory slots.[2] A Korean design patent for this black, rectangular, round-cornered phone was filed by Samsung in December 2006 prior to the release of the image of the iPhone[3] but after the release of the HTC TyTn which it resembles with its rectangular design and slide out keyboard.

The touchscreen allows to control the entire handset. The "Croix UI" was awarded the iF Communication Design Award for 2007.[2]

The phone was also introduced as the Samsung Glyde or Samsung SCH-U940 on Verizon Wireless in May 2008. [4]
