samsung_i8000_omnia2Today Samsung unveils another mobile phone model: I800 Omnia II. It looks close to Omnia HD and iPhone, but we will see is different inside.

It come s with a very large 3.7″ resistant WVGA AMOLED touchscreen with 16M colors, same as Omnia HD model, but larger than iPhone models.

Under the display we find 3 buttons, the middle one is a 3D cube and is has very interesting interacting options. At the top of the phone you will find: the power button, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a microUSB port. On the left side is situated the volume rocker and on the other side you find Back key and the task switcher / shutter key combo .

It weights 117 g, have round edges and the following dimensions: 118 x 59.6 and 11.9 mm thickness. We dare to say is not big, is not small and looks perfect in our pockets.

Comparing to Omnia HD, the I8000 camera has just 5 megapixels and includes features such as autofocus, Dual Power LED flash, Geo-tagging, face and smile detection. Videos are shoot at a resolution of 720×480 and 30fps(3GP format).

The phone runs Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system on a 800MHz CPU. It is quite understandable why, because the  TouchWiz user interface has to support impressing applications:

  • 3D Media Gate, a 6 side cube which gives you access to 6 multimedia features: Photo album, Music player, Video player, FM Radio, Games and internet.
  • Motion UI give access to multimedia favorites as well as speed dialing just by tapping, tilting or flipping the handset.
  • Touch Player which plays and supports video, audio and playlist files.
  • The Photo Gallery has lot of modes that help you to view images: grid view mode, 3d arc view mode.
  • Internet experience is through Opera 9.5 browser and supports Flash.
  • Built-in Gps receiver with Gps navigator.
