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 3.15 megapixel camera (early reports claimed a 5-megapixel sensor). Furthermore, the handset is HSDPA and Bluetooth 2.0 compatible and possesses USB and microSD memory slots. 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 but after the release of the HTC TyTn which it resembles with its rectangular design and slide out keyboard.
The touchscreen allows the control of the entire handset. The "Croix UI" was awarded the iF Communication Design Award for 2007. A Trusted Reviews article said that the Ultra Smart F700 "kicks iPhone's butt."
The F700 was succeeded by the Samsung F490 in 2008.
