Son of Sam(sung) and X1 + 1 told you about the upcoming Samsung Omnia II. It’s no longer upcoming. It’s announced. And MobileBurn already has photos and a video (including the photo on the left). The Omnia II has a 3.7” AMOLED WVGA (480×800) resistive touch screen and Samsung’s TouchWiz 2.0 user interface. The underlying OS is Windows Mobile 6.1, which will be upgradable to 6.5. The Omnia II is coming to Verizon. For more details, check out Samsung I8000 Omnia II preview: First look.
The Omnia II isn’t the only new Samsung phone. There’s also the OmniaPRO B7610. And again MobileBurn already has photos and a video (including the photo on the right). This phone’s has a 3.5” AMOLED (resistive) touch screen is also AMOLED and only slightly smaller, 3.5”. However, unlike the Omnia II, the OmniaPRO B7610 has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Its OS also is Windows Mobile 6.1, upgradable to 6.5. I’m not sure currently which U.S. carrier will be getting this phone.
Both phones have an AMOLED screen. Screens: Why the Samsung Omnia PRO and Zune HD Will Be Great explains this technology, and includes a video by a Samsung VP.
