The latest handset to feature Samsung’s bada open operating platform will go on sale in the UK in December
Samsung will expand the range running its own bada operating platform with the release of the Wave II in the UK in December. The Wave II will be based on the latest version of the software, bada 1.2, and follows the release of the original Wave handset in June.
The phone comes with a 3.7-inch LCD screen, which Samsung said is anti-scratch, anti-smudge and anti-reflective, as well as a five megapixel camera with image editor, face detection and smile shot, HD video playing and recording and 2GB of internal memory that can be expanded to 32GB with a microSD card.
‘Social Hub’ enables people to view their phonebook, social networks, instant messenger and email together in an integrated one-page layout, with support for Samsung Apps giving users access to the handset manufacturer’s application store.
Samsung Mobile UK and Ireland managing director Simon Stanford said: “Samsung’s success with the first Wave smartphone did not slow our drive to further integrate social media, rich multimedia and enhanced features.”
