On top of the technological advancements, the SCP-8400 by Sanyo has a fresh new appearance and features a unique new personalization accessory called the "Sanyo FaceMask."

FaceMasks come in a variety of shapes and designs and complement the colors of the phone while allowing extreme personalization. The Midnight Black phone comes with a Blue FaceMask, Electric Blue phone with Black FaceMask, and Powder White phone with Metallic Lavender FaceMask. Additional FaceMasks are available for purchase.

The SCP-8400 by Sanyo supports the latest version of Sprint Themes, allowing for even more personalization.
