Yesterday we told you about the new Samsung 12 megapixel cameraphone, that will probably get introduced at Mobile World Congress 2009 and now we’ve got more leaks to check out. Samsung is also planning on launching an 8 MP cameraphone with 3x optical zoom, plus an Android device AND a new Omnia, all of them ready for an official introduction at MWC.


Dutch site GSM Helpdesk confirms this info and claims that the 8 MP phone with 3x optical zoom will be an INNOV8 follow-up and it’ll run Symbian S60 OS, while the 12 MP handset will be running Samsung’s own OS. No info on the Android phone for now, but what we know is that an uber-smartphone is coming, Samsung Omnia 16 GB, according to Windows Mobile Italy.

Its incredible specs include a graphics chip with 3D acceleration and Direct 3D support, a Marvell PXA312 624 MHz CPU, 256 MB of ROM and 128 MB of RAM. Omnia 16 GB will be working in quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks or UMTS/HSDPA ones (up to 7.2 Mbps) and it’ll incorporate a 3.2 inches WQVGA touchscreen display with a 240 x 400 pixels resolution.

The new Omnia uses the famous TouchWiz GUI and it comes with a 5 megapixel camera with flash and autofocus, a secondary camera for video calls, GPS, FM radio, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, a microSDHC card slot (32GB max) and a 1440 mAh Li-ion battery.
