Samsung announces two more additions to the Omnia family: Omnia II and Omnia LITE

Samsung is just unstoppable today, having announced more new phones in just the past few hours than some companies announce in a year. Two Omnia Pros, a Jet for good measure and now we’re introduced to the Omnia II (I8000) and Omnia LITE (B7300). Starting with the more exciting of the two handsets, the Omnia II will be Sammy’s successor to the popular to the Omnia as we’re sure you guessed. Specs are as follows:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional (upgradable to 6.5)
  • Massive 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen display
  • TouchWiz 2.0 UI
  • Advanced R Touch (Resistive Touch) that “enables faster, more accurate touch response”
  • 480p video recording and playback
  • HSUPA 5.76Mbps, HSDPA 7.2Mbps
  • Wi-Fi
  • Up to 48GB of storage

Wow. Ok, now let’s have a look at the scaled down Omnia LITE:

  • Full touchscreen form factor
  • TouchWiz 2.0
  • 3 megapixel camera
  • Push email support
  • Microsoft Office Suite
  • Full HTML Opera Web browser
  • Wi-Fi
  • A-GPS

Samsung obviously wanted to focus on the more capable Omnia II so as you can see, not much substance was offered as far as the Omnia LITE is concerned. Both handsets appear to be very solid offerings however, and will certainly likely be well received be their respective target demographics. Release timing and pricing are not yet available, though the Omnia II will be offered by Verizon Wireless some time this year.
