At just ten dollars more than the seven megapixel S760, the otherwise identical Samsung S860 has a sensor resolution of eight megapixels coupled to a Samsung-branded 3x optical zoom lens. This provides a fairly typical zoom range from 38mm to 114mm, with maximum aperture varying from a fair f/2.8 at wide angle to f/5.2 at telephoto. The S860 can focus to a minimum of ten centimeters at wide angle in macro mode.

The Samsung S860 also features a high resolution 2.4" LCD display with 230,000 pixels, USB 2.0 connectivity, 11MB of built-in memory, ISO sensitivity from 80 - 1000, shutter speeds from 8 - 1/2000 second, a maximum of 3x digital zoom and 12.8x playback zoom, and a Motion JPEG movie mode with audio.

Other S860 features include multi, center, and face detection AF; multi, spot and face detection metering modes; seven white balance modes, eleven scene modes, DIS (Digital Image Stabilization), and a five-mode built in flash. Samsung's S860 stores images on Secure Digital cards (including the newer SDHC cards), or the previously mentioned built-in memory. Power comes courtesy of two AA batteries (with alkaline disposables in the product bundles), and the included software is Samsung Master.

The Samsung S860 digital camera ships January 2008, with a suggested retail price of US$179, and will be available in black, silver, pink and blue finishes.
