Samsung Omnia 7 i8700 and LG Optimus 7 officially unveiled a bit early

There are still a few hours until Microsoft kicks off its Windows Phone 7 launch event, but Samsunng and LG have went ahead and already announced two WP7 devices: the Samsung Omnia 7 i8700 and the LG Optimus 7.

The Omnia 7 i8700 has been announced by Samsung Russia, which unveiled some of the smartphone’s features, including: 4 inch Super AMOLED WVGA display, “Metro UI”, Wi-Fi, Xbox Live, Zune, 5MP camera with LED flash, 8GB of on-board memory, and 1GHz Qualcomm processor.

The price and launch date of the Samsung Omnia 7 are yet to be disclosed.

The Optimus 7 has been mistakenly announced in a post over at LG UK’s official blog. The post has been quickly removed, but Pocket-lint managed to gather some details.

The new LG Windows Phone 7 handset features a 3.8 inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display, 3G, Wi-Fi, 5MP camera with 720p video recording, 1GHz processor, and 16GB of internal memory. The Optimus 7 also comes with Play-To (a DLNA multimedia sharing platform), a Voice-to-Text feature, and a Scansearch app that lets users “access real-time information about shopping, dining, weather, entertainment and banking, bringing together your online and offline worlds for an easier life.” Xbox Live and Zune are obviously included, too.

Like in the case of Samsung’s Omnia 7, the launch date and price of the LG Optimus 7 are not known. We’ll bring more details as soon as we have them.
