Slashphone claims that Omnia 2 will hit the market on Saturday, July 18, but only in Singapore for now. The handset will be available unlocked for $615, no contract attached and this price makes it as appealing as other similar HTC devices, although the smartphone comes with extra neat features.
Expect a free ROM upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5 for this device, but that’s only a rumour for now and in case it’s real, you should get it at the end of the year. We remind you that Samsung Omnia 2 comes with a 5 megapixel camera, an 800 MHz CPU, a huge 3.7 inch AMOLED display and 8 or 16GB of internal memory.
This touchscreen bar phone comes with TouchWiz 2.0 UI with 3D effects, WiFi, GPS and an accelerometer. Moving on to the Symbian side of things, we learn that Samsung i8910 HD will also hit Singapore on August 1 for $750. This device comes with Symbian S60 5.0 (full touch UI), an 8 megapixel camera, DivX, XviD, video editing, 24 fps (HD) video recording and much more.
