Samsung’s Omnia W shows it face


The first pictures of the Samsung Omnia W (one of the current Omnia 7 successors) for Windows Phone 7 has finally been released by Samsung, and we’re not quite sure what to think of it. The Omnia W is the international version of the Samsung Focus Flash which will be released in the USA, as leaked by AT&T earlier this month (which we predicted as well). We already knew about the specs, but let’s give another quick rundown of the phone:

  • Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango)
  • 3.7-inch 800 x 480 Super AMOLED display
  • 1.4GHz processor (single core)
  • Front Facing Camera (1.3 megapixel)
  • 5 megapixel rear camera (with 720p recording)

It’s touted as Samsung’s lower end Windows Phone, and it’s expected to go head to head with HTC’s lower end phone – The HTC Radar. Of course, those looking for a good low end phone with good specs can’t go wrong with the Omnia W, that’s for sure. Head to Head, it’s certainly got the Radar beat on all levels (based on the specs we know of course), but it’s got a slightly smaller screen than the Radar. As for ourselves, we find the phone interesting but we’re not exactly sure the slightly different look is good (it reminds us a bit too much of Acer Android Phones).

Still, we’ll be waiting for their flagship model – The Focus S (probably the Omnia S or something) to make it’s debut, because that looks enticing as well. But for a budget Windows Phone 7, the Omnia W is as good as they come.
