Samsung Omnia 16GB, Samsung Android Phone and more leaks

Well, it looks that today is Samsung leak day.

Just few hours ago we reported that there’s a new Samsung 12 megapixel handset and probably 8 mpx handset with 3x optical zoom coming out at MWC 2009 in Barcelona.

Now the Dutch site GSM Helpdesk, which has been spot on many previous Samsung leaks confirms it. And adds some more info info about these new handsets.

The 8 mpx/Zoom one will be a direct successor of Innov8 and will probably run on Symbian S60 OS. The 12 mpx Samsung phone will be a feature phone that will run on Samsung’s own OS.

GSM HelpDesk also says that within next two weeks (that’s right inline with the start of MWC 09) Samsung will announce it’s first Android phone. Though no other details are available for now.
