HTC Touch Pro, Samsung Omnia and others confirmed for Verizon, pics leaked

Two of this year’s nicest mobile devices, HTC Touch Pro and Samsung Omnia, are now confirmed for an upcoming release via Verizon Wireless, the giant CDMA US carrier.  

Phone Arena has it that Verizon will launch both said handsets sometime in November, thus offering its customers early Christmas gifts.  

After being officially announced by Sprint, HTC Touch Pro is now making its way to Verizon too. The handset will apparently be called Verizon Wireless XV6850 and it should replace the old XV6800.

There’s now word yet on how much the Touch Pro / Verizon Wireless XV6850 costs, but since Sprint sells it for $299 with a contract agreement, Verizon will probably offer it for a similar price.   

Here is how Touch Pro from Verizon should look like:


Its features will include, besides the full QWERTY keyboard:

  • A 2.8 inch VGA touchscreen display
  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
  • EV-DO Rev. A
  • GPS & Wi-Fi
  • 3.2 MP camera with autofocus & video 

Verizon’s Samsung Omnia will be a nice alternative to any other full-touch phone out there in the US. The handset will come as the CDMA version of the GSM one, and its features should not differ too much from the ones found in the latter.


So, expect to find the following in the CDMA Omnia:

  • 3.2 inches TFT touchscreen display with 240 x 400 pixels
  • Accelerometer
  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro
  • GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • 5 MP camera with autofocus
  • 8GB of internal memory

HTC Touch Pro and Samsung Omnia surely represent great news for Verizon’s customers, but there’s even more: Verizon will also launch Samsung Saga i770 and Samsung Renown SCH-U810.

The Saga i770 is a Verizon version of AT&T’s Samsung Epix and it will look like this:


The specs of Samsung Saga i770 probably include: 

  • A 2.55 inches touchscreen display with 320 x 320 pixels
  • WinMo 6.1 Pro
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • Wi-Fi
  • A-GPS
  • 2 MP camera

And finally, Samsung Renown SCH-U810 is a global clamshell that works on CDMA and GSM (quad band) frequencies.


The features of Samsung Renown SCH-U810 include:

  • 2 MP camera
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Visual Voice Mail
  • MicroSD cards support  

Both Samsung Saga and Samsung Renown should be offered by Verizon at about the same time as Omnia and Touch Pro, hence starting November.
