Samsung Omnia II (I8000) and LITE (B7300) Announced

Yes, you heard that right. Samsung's just announced their fourth and fifth mobile phones of the day. The Samsung Omnia II and OmniaLITE have both been confirmed. Samsung is obviously trying to reassert themselves as an industry leader, and releasing a storm of brand new smartphones is a fine way to start.

The Omnia II has a huge 3.7” AMOLED screen, TouchWiz 2.0 UI, Advanced Resistive Touch, and 7.2 Mbps HSDPA. It can hold up to 48 GB, which will help with its 480p video playback and recording. It's also WiFi capable, and also has HSUPA 5.76 Mbps.

The OmniaLITE has TouchWiz 2.0, a 3D multimedia player, multi-push email access, and access to the Microsoft Office Suite. It's got HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, plus an integral Opera Browser. A 3 megapixel camera and A-GPS completes the package.

The Omnia II is definitely the heavy hitter of the pair. I'd bet on it sitting on the upper end of the price scale, and Samsung will probably market it as a high-end multimedia smartphone. The OmniaLITE looks like a much more practical (and somewhat less awesome) business smartphone. I'd bet on it being cheaper than the Omnia II, although we don't have price info on either phone yet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
