Samsung Omnia i900 16GB mobile phone on its way: Rumor

Samsung logo Samsung has certainly got the rumor mills spinning as it prepares for the Mobile World Congress 2009. Engadget revealed yesterday that Samsung is all set to debut a 16GB version of the Samsung Omnia phone. The phone should apparently pack in features and functionality quite similar to its 8GB version.

Boasting of a 3.2 inch touch screen display that will have a WQVGA resolution of 240×400 pixels, the Samsung Omnia i900 16 GB phone will be powered by the Windows Mobile 6.1 professional operating system. The phone will be equipped with the Marvell PXA312 624 MHz Processor and will come with a 5 mega pixel main camera that features flash and auto focus.

The phone should also sport a secondary QCIF CMOS front camera that will offer support for video calls. With support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, other connectivity options of the 16 GB phone apparently include Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and Single-band UMTS/HSDPA. With a 16 GB flash memory the Omnia phone will also bundle in a GPS receiver that will be integrated with the Qualcomm MSM6281 chipset.

Other features of the Samsung Omnia i900 16GB mobile phone apparently include FM radio receiver with RDS support, microSD card slot expandable up to 32GB, accelerometer and gravity sensor. While the battery should last around 11 hours on continuous usage, the phone will also bundle in Samsung’s patent TouchWiz GUI and a graphics chip that allows 3D acceleration along with support for Direct 3D.

There are no details yet on the price or exact availability date of the Samsung Omnia i900 16GB mobile phone.
