Samsung I8000 the Omnia 2?

Well, well, well. What have we here? This odd little phone from Samsung (that'd be for the cube button at the bottom) snuck up on us and could well be the next in the Omnia line. First, the deets, from Lithuanian site Mobili Linija [via]:

  • Quad-band EDGE, 2100MHz HSDPA.
  • 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen (!) at 480x800 pixels
  • Qualcomm MSM6290 processor
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • WiFi b/g
  • aGPS
  • 1500mAh battery
  • MicroSD card
  • 8.1MP camera with flash, VGA video at 30fps.

Now, the odd (but cool) stuff: Phone Area also says this handset has also appeared with the Cubic37 codename. Pair that with the cube button at the bottom of the phone, and it's getting pretty likely that it could sport Samsung's rumored 3D cube UI.

Obviously this isn't something we'd see here with only the 2100MHz 3G band. But it's defintely something we'll an eye out for more on it in the future.
