It’s been just a few days since Samsung announced the latest addition to its Windows Phone line-up, the Focus 2, destined for the US. But the company is keen to share some love with other markets too, and has just announced another new Windows Phone, the Omnia M.
Don’t get too excited though – this isn’t a new flagship by any means. Although there’s a 4.0” Super AMOLED display, the rest of the specs are decidedly low-end. The device includes a miserly 4GB of storage and a meagre 384MB of RAM. There’s also a 1GHz processor of unspecified origin, along with a 5MP rear camera with LED flash, and a VGA front-facing cam, for use with services such as Skype, Tango or Samsung’s own ChatON service.
Samsung’s press release on the device excuses its feeble storage by claiming that SkyDrive offers 25GB of free cloud storage to extend that capacity – but of course, that’s no longer the case, as Microsoft now offers just 7GB to new SkyDrive users.
The Omnia M will first launch in Europe, but will be made available in “other regions” at a later date. But if you were hoping for a new high-end Omnia, it looks like you’ll probably have to wait for one of the two new devices that Samsung is expected to launch with Windows Phone 8 later this year.
