The Samsung Wave II (S8530), the successor to the original Wave (which was the first smartphone to be powered by Samsung’s own Bada OS), has finally made it to the UK. The Wave II runs Bada 1.2, the latest version of the OS, and was previously seen landing in Germany, South Korea, and India, and was supposed to hit the UK in December.
The Wave II is available right now on Pay Monthly plans from O2 and retailer Phones4U. Phones4U can hook you up with the Wave II on Orange, Vodafone or O2, and if you want the phone for free, you’ll have to get a monthly plan of at least £20. There are very many options, depending on which plan you choose and on which operator, so head straight to Phones4U to make your pick.
The Samsung Wave II has a 3.7-inch Super Clear LCD capacitive touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP camera with LED flash, HD video recording, HSDPA 3.6 Mbps on the 900/2100 bands, quad-band GSM, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, 2 GB of internal memory expandable via a microSD card slot, a 3.5 mm headset jack, and a 1500 mAh battery.
