RUMOUR: Samsung Omnia 2 leaked?

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.

Samsung Memoir gets official


Samsung’s got a decent line in cameraphones going on, with last year’s Pixon and Omnia, and now it’s throwing this – the Memoir – into the mix. It’s got an 8-megapixel sensor, 16x digital zoom, and a xenon flash, along with full touchscreen and aGPS.

There’s five shooting modes, and uploading your snaps to the internet is easy, with Flickr, Kodak Gallery, Photobucket and Snapfish integration. There’s 3G for uploads, but no Wi-Fi sadly, so you might consider uploading in low-quality, at least until you can get home. No word on pricing, but it should be arriving this month.
