Samsung has announced its new flagship model, the Samsung Jet, a touchscreen feature phone that the company calls "smarter than a smartphone."

With a 3.1-inch WVGA AMOLED display that is four times the resolution of a WQVGA display and an 800MHz Samsung 6410 processor called that the company referred to as the "Jet Engine", the Jet runs the 2.0 version of Samsung's proprietary TouchWiz operating system.

The OS includes 3D Cube multimedia effects, a motion responsive user interface with accelerometer controls and a smart unlock feature that allows users to use gestures to open particular apps from the lock screen. The device also supports Exchange ActiveSync data synchronization.

The Jet uses a WebKit-based browser called Dolfin that can open up to 5 windows at a time, allows users to create website widgets for the home screen, includes an ad blocker to speed up browsing, and more.

The Jet is packed with features. This 3G device includes WiFi for high-speed local networks and Bluetooth for hands-free support. The device's 5 megapixel autofocus camera with dual-LED flash can shoot pictures and can record DVD-quality video. Users can save up to 2GB of multimedia to internal memory or more to external microSD cards. Usability should be long-lasting with its 1100mAh battery.

No carriers have signed on with the Jet yet, but Samsung tells us a version of the Jet might be available later in the U.S. Pricing details are not yet available.
