Samsung Omnia W Windows Phone announced with detailed specs

Samsung has announced the Omnia W, the Omnia 7 successor, and it's set to sport a 3.7" Super AMOLED screen, 1.4Ghz processor and a 5MP rear camera (with FF VGA camera). We previously caught a brief overlook of the specifications from SamFirmware and they stated that the handset will be available at stores in October starting with Italy and advancing through Europe.

What's yet to be decided is how Samsung will price the device, probably aiming to battle with the HTC Radar. The Omnia W will be powering Windows Phone Mango. Check out the full specification chart after the break.

Samsung Omnia W Windows Phone announced with detailed specs


Luckily no real reason to update my Omnia 7 yet.. I like my WP7 squared, not with curves at the top/bottom. :)

No, not interessted. As their support in sweden is so crappy it will take some time before I ever concider a Sasmsung product again.

"probably aiming to battle with the HTC Radar." Probably not. This phone has a 1.4ghz processor and a amoled display. The radar is running 1ghz with lcd display. Not in the same ballpark.

So based on this and the Focus S we can only assume at this point the non-american verision of the GSII equivalent will be the "Omnia S"

I think this works. Fast processor, 8 gig memory running Windows Phone Mango? Oh yeah this works. I'd dig a larger screen size myself but my HTC Arrive is quite enjoyable. I think the OS is what makes the difference. The experience will truly be enjoyable.

You would have to like a larger screen than the Arrive, right? Would't a 3.8 or 4.0 range screen be sweet? I don't get all of the smaller WP7 screens and just a couple of larger ones. The whole graphical layout of WP7 seems to beg for more real estate to show off to beautiful lateral screen transitions. Maybe it's just me.

When I read this on Engadget and BGR earlier this morning, it was in addtion to the GSII LTE and GSII HD units that Samsung also announced running Android. Looking at the 3 units together, it's sad to see how WP7 gets the ugly duckling of the bunch. The new GSII models here and abroad are much more appealing (to me at least) with the larger screens and more sleek designs than the Sammy WP7 offerings.How nice would a GSII be running WP7 Mango directly from the manufacturer?? C'mon, guys...step it up.(I so want to like WP7 and still can't see the point of the wasted homescreen real estate for the white arrow space. It looks so much better on the WPCentral home page phone store add where someone photoshop'd the arrow out and made the tiles wider to fill the entire homescreen)

You have corrected me and for that I thank you, sir. I'd forgotten about that one since it wasn't really shown (until the post today) when the HTC Titan pics came out.Hopefully Sprint gets a few of those big ones to choose from soon.

As much as I like WP7, I cannot see a reason to upgrade my Omnia 7. Slightly faster processor and thats about it. Smaller screen making it appear that it has better resolution instead of really upping the resolution is a bit of a cheek from samsung. Nothing new from Samsung or HTC, the specs are more or less the same as the first wave of WP7 devices.
