The Samsung Omnia II is set to be the first handset to feature the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile phone operating system, a press release from Austrian carrier A1 indicates.
Posted on Microsoft's Ausrian website, the press release names September 9th as the official Austrian launch date for the new mobile phone and claims that it will run on the Windows Mobile 6.5.
Previous reports had suggested that the handset would be equipped with Windows Mobile 6.1 at launch, but would offer owners the chance to upgrade to the latest version at a later date.
Features of the successor to the Samsung Omnia include a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, HSDPA support for fast downloads at up to 7.2Mb and a high grade camera with video recording.
To allow users to make the most of the functions on offer Samsung has equipped the Omnia II with 48GB of storage space.
Samsung’s other key handset launch for 2009 is the Samsung Jet, which stands out for the inclusion of a powerful processor that enables rapid, simultaneous use of all the mobile phone’s functions.
