Samsung Corby S3653 - Specs, Price, Photos

Samsung Corby S3653,
a New Addition to Samsung’s Full Touch line-up.




Samsung Mobile once again wows consumers with a new full-touch mobile phone, the Samsung Corby. This new mobile phone is specifically created for the young and the young-at-heart. It will reshape the way touch-screen phones are designed with its more sensual lines.

The Samsung Corby (model: S3653), a full touch-screen phone featuring a radical design, is expected to hit the Philippine market this end-September.



The Corby stands out with its stylish and distinctive curved design, which contrasts with the typical rectangular form-factor of other touch-screen phones.

The device represents a complete makeover for the youth segment, with its eye-catching profile featuring two-tone diagonal lines. The Samsung Corby is notable for both its body design and colors; which mark a significant break from the way full touch phones are usually designed.

“With the Corby, Samsung is making a bigger foray into the youth market. Given that existing full touch-screen models are tailored for businesspeople, we are aiming to gain a growing presence in the market by attracting younger consumers,” Younghee Lee, Vice President of Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics said.


This approach is a significant expansion for Samsung, which re-emphasize Samsung’s ‘Touch for every lifestyle’ strategy. Samsung has introduced a variety of full touch mobiles throughout the year from Jet, a mobile with brilliant touch performance, to Omnia II, the all-in-one redefined smartphone. Samsung Corby is now attracting the younger generation with its unique curvy design, cheerfully colored back cover, and specialized feature for social networking. Corby supports popular social networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. It also contains entertainment access features and a special user interface.

“To tap into the rapidly growing touch-screen phone market, Samsung continues to unveil a diverse product line in that aims to secure its market leadership down the road,” Younghee Lee added.

The Samsung Corby will be available in four colors: Yellow, Orange, White and Pink.

  8. Hi!

    Thanks for the comments.

    Anon - Price is around P8,500

    cj - Nope, this one doesn't feature wifi. But for P8,500 (more or less), IMHO, it's all good.

  9. Hi :)
    Do you know where we can purchase this?
    I've tried looking at a couple of stores, but they don't seem to have them. :(

    ReplyDelete
  10. it's 7500 here in pangasinan.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Dude, in cebu's main samsung branch it costs P7,500 without a memory card, though they have this promo that cost P500 for a 4gb SD card. In some stores, it costs about P7,300. But I'd rather buy the phone in a samsung store, more freebies that way.

    ReplyDelete
  12. i think the deal breaker is it doesnt have a wifi. if this phone is the targeting youth market, they should have included the wifi capability -- nowadays, kids looks for this feature since most campus or establishments near campus have a free wifi.. -- just my 2 cents.

    ReplyDelete
  13. So sad this phone doesn't have a WIFI.... :(

    ReplyDelete
  14. Its prices at Rs.7300 in Delhi Market, It does not have wifi. but overall a very good phone.

    Its big screen make viewing more clear and fun. u can also use ur finger to drag and drop items and icons.

    overall 8 out of 10, worth buying one.

    ReplyDelete
  15. does any1 have a cracked vid converter? i think the best feature of the phone is that it's expandable to 8gb but i can't take full advantage since i cant have my vids converted... help please??? :(

    ReplyDelete
  16. Doesn't have a 3G of Wi-fi

    how can that be appealing to the young and young at heart

    ReplyDelete
  17. can not belive it is only for PHP8500.. hmp.. sounds good.. :]]

  20. you might want to hold your purchase until the release of Corby Pro - the one with QWERTY slide out keypad, touchscreen, wifi and 3G.

    I believe there's a feature on Corby Pro on this site.

  75. Hey, I just bought samsung corby with wifi for only Php 8,000 at greenhills last 22 May 2010. It's so cool and awesome. I could use it to chat in Google chat, yahoomail and more. I could surf the internet but i don't know yet how to play video in youtube, seem like it needs some flash player or other sofrware, who knows how to play video in youtube? Furthermore, it has a built in dictionary where you can use easily.
