Samsung: Hear and hear us clearly. Bring this phone… To the US… With WCDMA 850/1900… Now! We first told you about Wile E.’s wonder phone this past Thursday as blurrycam shots were leaked along with preliminary specs. Yes, it was sexy then. Now that we have some higher-quality shots and S60 5th Edition has become a fact rather than just an unsubstantiated theory, this thing can’t come around soon enough. This isn’t the first time Samsung has taken Nokia’s S60 operating system and stuffed it into a handset way more drool-worthy than any Finnish phone on the market, but this could very well be the widest margin by which Samsung has out-Nokiaed Nokia yet. Let’s take a look at the specs we knew about already along with the few (but pretty huge) new details that have come along with these high-quality shots (bold):

  • 8 GB and 16 GB versions
  • Symbian S60 5th Edition OS
  • Glass AMOLED touchscreen display
  • 8 megapixel camera with 9x digital zoom
  • Secondary front-facing camera
  • HD video recording
  • DLNA and DivX support
  • HDMI output
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • Wi-Fi
  • GPS

So far Nokia has officially announced two S60 5th Edition handsets, the 5800 XpressMusic and the N97. Only one has reached market thus far of course but we won’t even bother comparing it to the i8910. That leaves the N97 and it’s a very good thing it packs a physical keypad because we can’t see any other reason someone might opt for the N97 over this beast of a handset. Now more than ever, MWC can’t come soon enough. Hit the jump for more pics including a side-by-side with a BlackBerry Storm for size comparison.
