MWC: Samsung unveils Omnia HD


Samsung has unveiled the Omnia HD Symbian touchscreen handset at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The HSDPA-enabled Omnia HD features high-definition video recording and decoding. The device also has the largest Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (AMOLED) screen available on a mobile phone, according to Samsung.

The follow up to the original Omnia model captures video in HD quality, and enables viewing on an HD TV via DLNA technology.

It has an 8-megapixel camera and a 3.7-inch auto-rotating display.

The GPS with integrated compass makes the device good for navigation by car and on foot, with navigation touch control and voice guidance via dual stereo speakers.

Other features include 8GB or 16GB internal memory, and 32GB expandable memory.

Samsung executive vice president and head of mobile communication JK shin said: “Omnia HD demonstrates our vision for the Samsung mobile business, which is to provide premium phones for users who desire functionality, style, usability and entertainment in one innovative device.”

The Omina HD will be available in the UK from Q2.
