At the Samsung UNPACKED event (as well as Communicasia 2009) in Singapore, Samsung has unveiled their new range of Omnia mobile phones including the Omnia II. The maker has recently announced the availability of the Omnia II as well as the i8910 HD (or Omnia HD).
SINGAPORE, JULY 13 2009 – Following the showcase of its robust range of touch mobile phones for every lifestyle at last month’s CommunicAsia, Samsung will introduce in Singapore two highly-anticipated full-touch highlights – the Omnia II this weekend followed by the i8910 HD two weekends later.
While both boast the world’s largest 3.7-inch AMOLED screen, each brings a unique flavour to Samsung’s full-touch mobile phone proposition – the i8910 HD is the first Symbian full-touch handset featuring high quality HD video recording while the Omnia II offers a highly customisable user interface with 3D effects, providing touch-optimised usability to make multi-tasking convenient for smartphone users. Packed with outstanding multimedia applications, Samsung’s latest full-touch phones bring the power of multimedia and business performance to consumers.
Samsung Omnia II
Building on the success of the Omnia, the Samsung Omnia II provides smartphone users with an excellent array of applications to enhance their multimedia experience.
Like the i8910 HD, the Omnia II provides unbeatable screen clarity through its 3.7-inch AMOLED display which has an advanced R-type touch screen, enabling a faster, more accurate response for a user-friendly touch experience. Equipped with a 5-megapixel camera and DVD-like (480p) video recording and playback, users can shoot and edit their digital images by utilising the in-suite video editing application.
With the high-powered HSUPA 5.76Mbps, HSDPA 7.2Mbps and Wi-Fi capabilities, users of the Omnia II will experience smooth internet browsing and quick content download on-the-go. With ability to store up to 8GB and 32GB of internal and external memory respectively, users will have unlimited access to their favourite videos and web content.
The Samsung Omnia II is available from this weekend at a recommended retail price of S$898 without contract. It will also be updateable to Windows Mobile® 6.5.

First unveiled at Mobile World Congress as the first Symbian full-touch handset to be released by Samsung Electronics, the Samsung i8910 HD provides seamless integration of style, multimedia and business performance into one mobile phone. The sleek full touchscreen device features a 3.7-inch 16:9 AMOLED screen which offers crystal clear images and unrivalled sharpness in tones through its 16M colour QHD display.
