LG GD550 and Philips Xenium X712 are a couple of upcoming handsets that has just been spotted recently, where the former comes in a slider form factor complete with a 5-megapixel camera and quad-band GSM connectivity. Some folks might think of it as resembling the LG Pure, and they couldn’t be too far off the mark. As for the Philips Xenium X712, this model sports a 5-megapixel camera as well, a dual SIM carriage slot and comes in a clamshell form factor. We do wonder whether the Xenium X712 will have a long battery life to retain Philip’s signature feature in their handsets. No word on pricing or availability on either as at press time.
