Samsung i8000 Omnia II gets official

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.


samsung i800 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.

    master yuga, may special discount ka ba sa mga cellphones/laptops? im planning to buy a new cellphone/laptop eh.

    thank you.

  2. bertsan531 says:

    nice looking phone wonder how much will it cost and is it available already in Manila

  3. Kiko says:

    my problem with this phone is that i dont find that cube/box design near the bottom worries with the wm6.1 since it can be upraged to 6.5 once it comes out.
    if only samsung made the omnia hd with windows mobile instead of symbian, i think that would be a better phone than the omnia II

  4. ricojake says:

    wow that is really a large screen! wonder how it will fare with iPhone 3Gs.

  5. zEr0-IcE says:

    I actually am waiting for this phone to come out and I’m very very eager!!!! Hope you get news when it will be released here!

  6. ganda ah.. at may bagong look, may “cube” na cla.. LOL

  7. jojo says:

    if this have any glitches, its back to the old one

  8. aie says:

    danda ng phone na to :D

  9. mark says:

    id say ill still wait for the omnia hd – its far way better.=)

  10. asian phones are taking it to next level – even surpassing european phones like nokia; with the right price these ones gonna sell like hotcakes! :D

  11. lance says:

    too bad they didn’t retain at least the 8MP camera :( or at least upgraded it to 12MP to match SE Idou.

    Hay… I’m confused then.

  12. jojovill says:

    If samsung will price the omnia i800 right
    im pretty sure that this model will be a tough competition
    to the 3Gs.


  13. culdado says:

    grabe i am also waiting for this.. kaso i really need a new one asap.. kaya baka omnia na lang bagsak ko.. tagal pa ata ng omniaHD at omnia2 eh.. hay! i believe i read it also na pwede i-upgrade ang 6.1 to 6.5 as soon as you buy it..

  14. culdado says:

    btw, omnia ba, pwede din upgrade win mo?

  15. Mike says:

    Any word on when the OmniaPro (AMOLED screen with slide out keyboard) will be available here in Manila?

  16. looks really great. How much would it be?

  17. Mark Jason says:

    5 MB is a little disadvantage sa model na to but the cube is really tempting to take home haha

  18. jctechcom says:

    still 5MP, only larger screen

    Its ok even if it is still 6.1, even the old omnia i900 can be upgraded to 6.5.

    The problem will be the software… will they run in Omnia 2? It has a larger screen now…

    for free omnia 1 software visit:

    and I prefer Omnia HD… why release omnia 2???

  19. irispen says:

    I email samsung philippines, sabi nila MID august daw magkakaron dito, around 30k yung 8gb while 33k yung 16gb..

    malapit lapit narin! hehe

  20. irispen says:

    lahat namn ng WinMO phones, pwedeng i upgrade.

    5MP is enough, masydo ng malaki ang 8MP kakainin lang yung memory nyo, hirap pa magsend via bluetooth. LOL

    Main selling point of Omnia 2 is:
    800Mhz Processor, Uber Sensitive Screen (even better than omniaHD’s), New Touchwiz 2 interface.

  21. carlo saldana says:

  25. ashe says:

    this is really hard. i’ve been lusting over omnia hd for quite sometime now and was about to buy one then this thing flashed out of the blue. i’ll wait till this new breed of omnia hits the market before buying a new phone. dAMI omnia ng samsung, there’s also what they call omnia pro and omnia lite. *dizzy*

    Hi Yuga,

    can you make a review? please compare samsung omnia ii and the i890 omina Hd, which is a better buy?

  30. WebGuy says:

    Magkano ba ito master yuga?

  31. Step says:

    I got this phone only last month. very nice phone. but the problem no asean language available for this phone considering samsung is originated in korea. also if u setup the regional settings be specific nagkakaroon ng problema sa time minsan nala-late.

  32. yan says:

    i have an Omnia Lite and it freezes too!! it hangs and it is really a hassle to use. brought it to the Samsung Service Center at SM Mall of Asia and Robinson’s Place (where I bought the phone) to have it checked or even replaced because of its defect but they kept on blaming the SIM card. they said that apparently, Samsung phones are “designed” for 64k SIM cards and since I’m using a 128k postpaid SIM card, it will cause the phone to hang, the battery will be drained faster, it will cause the phone to heat up faster and it will have intermittent network signal. and till now, after a month, my phone is still with them since they are still “checking” what the defects are. Samsung phones are just as equally poor in performance as the quality of service itself!!

  33. Rachelle says:
