While we’re waiting for the Omnia HD to become available in the Philippines, Samsung has once again announced another upcoming Omnia smartphone. The Samsung i8000 Omnia II is the real successor to the Omnia series.
GSM Arena has a preview here but see list below for a run-down of the specs of the new Omnia II.
- 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen (480×800 pixels)
- HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps
- 800 MHz CPU
- 8GB or 16GB storage memory
- microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
- Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional with custom TouchWiz 2.0 UI
- 5 MP autofocus camera with dual LED flash (video at 720×480 @ 30fps)
- WiFi 802.11 b/g
- Bluetooth with A2DP
- GPS receiver with A-GPS
That’s a very large screen, large storage capacity (48GB total) and a high-capacity battery (1500 mAh) in one device. One thing that could be a bit disappointing is that it will come with Windows Mobile 6.1 instead of the newer 6.5 version.
