Samsung handsets have been leaking like a faucet in an old horror movie lately and today seems to be keeping the trend alive. Thankfully, this time around we’re seeing blurrycam photos and preliminary specs of what looks to be a full-featured handset rather than a river of entry-level phones. With an eye on multimedia, the Samsung Acme i8910 has a familiar form factor and what is rumored to be a heck of a spec sheet. As for the moniker – Acme – yeah, we have no idea but we don’t remember Wile E. ever pulling one out of a package. Here’s what the rumor mill has so far:

  • 8 GB and 16 GB versions
  • 8 megapixel camera
  • Secondary front-facing camera
  • HD video recording
  • DLNA and DivX support
  • HDMI output
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • Wi-Fi
  • GPS

Wow. There’s no word on when or where this puppy will drop or what the price point will be but with all of the Samsung handsets leaked over the past few weeks it’s a pretty safe bet that several of them will make their way to the show floor at MWC. Let’s hope this is one of them because all those multimedia features actually have our interest piqued. How about you guys? Hit the jump for a pair of shots.
