Samsung Omnia II i8000 and Omnia Lite B7300 smartphones announced
Alongside Omnia Pro B7610, Omnia Pro B7320 and the Jet, Samsung has also unveiled the Omnia II i8000 and the Omnia Lite B7300 – so there’s a total of five new phones announced by the South Korean company today (two more than Nokia).
First, let’s talk about the Samsung Omnia II i8000, which doesn’t look too different from the Jet. However, like all the Omnia devices, Omnia II i8000 is a smartphone, while the Jet is only a feature-phone (despite the fact that it’s presented as being “smarter than a smartphone”).
The Omnia II also has a bigger AMOLED touchscreen display: 3.7 inches with 480 x 800 pixels.
The other features of Samsung Omnia II include:
- Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
- TouchWiz 2.0 3D UI
- HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 5.76Mbps
- DVD-like (480p) video recording & playback
- Interactive 3D games
- Up to 48GB of total memory – probably 32GB internal and 16GB via a MicroSDHC card
It’s said that the smartphone also has a 8MP autofocus camera and GPS, but for the moment these features are not confirmed.
As its name suggests, Samsung Omnia Lite B7300 is not as advanced as the Omnia II. Anyway, the Omnia Lite is surely a nice handset, coming with HSDPA, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Opera Browser, “multi-codec supported high-quality video” and a 3MP camera.
Samsung didn’t say when the Omnia II i8000 and Omnia Lite B7300 will be available, and neither for what price. However, we should expect the smartphones to be released in Europe, North America and Asia pretty soon.
