The triband GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz) SGH-X510 has 1.77-inch 128 x 160 pixels size 64K UFB display with 640 x 480 pixels resolution and the mobile phone features a simple VGA resolution digital camera with 640 x 480 pixels resolution, GPRS connection, Infrared port and and support for 16 bit (40 channels) polyphonic ringtones.

Though the new entry level Samsung SGH-X510 mobile phone does not have support for external memory, it has 2.8 MB of internal memory – 1 MB for pictures, 600 KB for ringtones, 100 KB for voice memo, 700 KB for MMS and 512 KB for Java.

Other features of the Samsung SGH-X510 mobile phone includes Java MIDP 2.0 support, a photo editor, and Infrared port, and a large 1,000 entry phonebook.

Samsung SGH-X510 seems to be targeted at the fashionable and price conscious Indian youth but with very small internal memory (2.8 MB) with no support for external memory card and lack of FM radio makes it less appealing. Besides its features and specifications are very similar to the Samsung SGH-X640 clamshell mobile phone handset which has double the amount of memory.
