The wait is over. Samsung has officially announced its HD video recording phone Omnia HD in India. For a decent price of Rs. 33,990 and the rich feature set, I think it’s going to be tough for Nokia to justify N97’s price. Anyways, back to Omnia HD, the phone as we know boasts a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, TouchWiz UI, 8MP camera with 720p video recording, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, DLNA, HSDPA 7.2Mbps, HSUPA 5.7Mbps16GB internal memory with expandable up to 48GB via microSD card, accelerometer, GPS navigation and maps from NAVTEQ and 3D games. Another interesting tidbit is the processor. As per previous reports, it has a 600MHz ARM Cortex A8 but this one is claimed to have a Gigahertz of clockspeed. The proof is in the gallery albeit a blurry one.
Omnia PRO B7320 was also announced today. It’s a smartphone targeted at business-class users. The phone runs on WinMo 6.1 Standard edition but will be upgradeable to WinMo 6.5 later on, 528MHz processor, 256MB ROM and RAM, 3G, 3MPcamera, GPS, Wi-Fi, Office Suite, microSD slot (up to 16GB) and 1480mAh battery. It will go for Rs. 16,500.
