RUMOUR: Samsung Omnia 2 leaked?

Share

A video showing what could well be the new Omnia offering from Samsung, or the GT-I8000 to give it its technical title, has emerged in webland.

The details are a bit patchy, nothing has been confirmed officially as of yet, but hey, it’s different to the iPhone and varIety is the spice of life and all that.

Murmurs suggest a launch date of 15th June.

Probable spec is a 3.7-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen, possibly with an AMOLED panel, an 8.1-megapixel camera (take that, Apple) with dual LED flash and VGA video recording at 30fps.

It should have 3G, UMTS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and miniUSB. It should also boast GPS and a microSD card slot.

There’s a bit of debate going on regarding the UI. The video suggests a new cubic style setup, still using Windows Mobile though.

It looks pretty decent and, on paper, the spec looks like it could be considered as a possible iPhone rival. But we all know it won’t really worry Jobs, Schiller and the gang.
