Upcoming Samsung Omnia M
Dubbed the Omnia M, Samsung’s upcoming smartphone is widely considered as a direct derivative to the Omnia 7, which was released in 2010. The biggest difference is the Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” which offers new features like Xbox Live, Windows Live Skydrive, SmartDJ and Music Hub. The Omnia M is lighter and thinner compared to its predecessor, while the 4” WVGA AMOLED display is just a repetition on the Omnia 7. Being a mid-range smartphone, the phone mounts a 1GHz single core processor of an unknown type, while the Omnia 7 used 1GHz single-core Scorpion QSD8250 processor. Both don’t have microSD card slot, which is unfortunate, as the Omnia M only has 4GB of internal storage, while its predecessor has 8 and 16 GB models. Again, both have similar 5Mp rear-facing cameras and data connectivity options, like GPRS, HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 5.76Mbps.
The Omnia 7 offers 6 hours of continuous 3G connection and Samsung hasn’t revealed anything about the performance of Omnia M’s 1500mAh battery. You should purchase Omnia M only if you want to get the latest Windows Phone features and don’t plan to keep too many files.
