OMG! OMG! OMG! So the REAL follow up to the Samsung Omnia has finally leaked. This time the Samsung i8000 is touting windows mobile so it has every right to carry the name "Omnia".

So what do we get with the Samsung Omnia II? First, we get a bigger screen size, 3.7 inch TFT resistive touchscreen, and oh yeah, the Samsung Omnia II has that delicious AMOLED screen. Too bad that it's still resistive but that's only because capacitive touch screens will have an issue with Windows Mobile.

Second major upgrade is the camera. With the previous Omnia we have 5 megapixel but on the Samsung Omnia II i8000, we have an 8.1 megapixel camera with dual LED flash. The downer? Unlike the Samsung i8910 which can record videos at 720p, the Samsung Omnia II is only capable of capturing VGA videos at 30fps. I'm still not losing hope since not everything is official and this is only a leak, I'm crossing my fingers that Sammy is able to put in high def video recording on the Omnia II.

No word as to the processing power of the Qualcomm processor on this device as well as how much RAM will be on the Omnia II but it has all other goodies such as WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G, DivX/XViD. The Samsung i8000 Omnia II will still have Samsung's TouchWiz interface although there's an LG Arena like cube interface which seems cool.

I'm disappointed that it still has no physical QWERTY keyboard. If I got my hands first on the HTC Touch Pro2, the Samsung Omnia II may cease to appeal to me--or not. Anyways, we may get an official announcment at Samsung Unpacked event on June 15th. Till then, check out the video of the Samsung i8000 Omnia II.
