The following is an E-Mail from a Samsung Representative that was posted on

"the 940 (Giant) will have Bluetooth, but Speakerphone is not showing on the feature list (of course it didn’t show on the list for the a880 either, but that phone has it, so it is possible that the 940 might as well.)

The 960 (Oracle) will be a mid-tier VOD phone with camera/camcorder, and will be our first capable of supporting packaged downloads (pick a download package/theme from Sprint and it sends you menu wallpaper, screensavers, ring tones, external LCD picture, etc, all in your theme. For example, the NASCAR theme makes the external LCD (which is a gorgeous OLED) look like a fuel gauge, and gives you NASCAR themed menu clips and ring tones that sound like the cars speeding past on the track, etc. Very cool.

No pricing indication on either yet, but should be approximately in the a800 range or a little higher. Sprint sets the pricing, so it is hard to say?"

From this, we can deduce that the A960 handset will most likely indeed support Samsung's flash UI which enables the user to quickly download a customizable graphical user interface of their choice. Furthermore, from the fact that it was mentioned that there was an OLED display, we can say that it will a flip device. No mention of a time frame for release however.

As for the A940, there is a speakerphone button on the side, so it will definitely come equipped with one. The A940 should be out soon.
