In Japan, Samsung Omnia packs a 800 x 480 pixels display, built-in TV tuner and comes in red too

Samsung Omnia has been only today announced for Japan, several months after the handset went on sale in Europe.

However, Japanese mobile users seem to be a bit luckier than the European ones, as Omnia will be launched by SoftBank with some upgraded features.

The official name of the Japanese Omnia is SoftBank 930SC Omnia. The phone has a 3.3 inch TFT touchscreen display that supports a resolution of  800 x 480 pixels. Now compare that with the 240 x 400 pixels, 3.2 inch display of the regular Omnia

The Japanese Omnia also has a built-in 1-Seg TV tuner, which is, of course, not included in the handset’s versions for other countries.


SoftBank will release the phone in three color versions: black, white and red. Unfortunately, the red Omnia might not be found anywhere else except Japan. 


Apart from the bigger display and the TV tuner, the features of SoftBank 930SC Omnia are the same with the ones we can find in the original handset, including Windows Mobile 6.1, a 5 MP autofocus camera and 8GB of internal memory. 

Samsung Omnia will be commercially available from SoftBank starting November, for a price that is not known yet.
