Samsung's Omnia W is a stylish Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone, boasting a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen and a 1.4GHz processor
A Preview of the Samsung Omnia W
The Samsung Omnia W is the follow-up to last year's Omnia 7, as well as the UK-bound version of Sammy's US-only Focus Flash smartphone.
In terms of specs, the Omnia W packs a speedy 1.4GHz single-core processor, powering its 3.7-inch (480 x 800) Super AMOLED touchscreen - smaller than the Omnia 7's 4-inch effort.
Still, Samsung's latest 'Wondrous' smartphone also packs a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, capable of shooting 720p HD footage. There's also a VGA front-facing shooter onboard, taking advantage of Windows Phone's new-found support for video-calling.
That's not all the upgraded version of Windows Phone - Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) - has got going for it. Chief amongst its '500 new features', you'll find; multitasking support, Twitter and LinkedIn integration, voice-guided navigation, and bumped-up gaming features. Samsung has added its own features to the phone, too, including Office, Picture, Music and Video Hubs and an integrated RSS reader.
Other confirmed specifications include; a Bluetooth 2.1, HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, and a 1500mAh battery.
The Samsung Omnia W will be released in the UK before the end of the year, although pricing and availability details are still TBC.
A full review will be published here once the phone has been released.
