It seems that complaint report on the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD has finally paid off. Samsung just announced an upcoming firmware update that will address some of the issues the user community has reported. Unfortunately, the less-than-24fps video recording is not among them.
There are three changes that the firmware update will bring. The first is an improved browser, with faster user interface. The browser on the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD needed a kick in the pants for its real life experience.
The next update is the addition of kinetic scrolling, which the browser already has, but the rest of the interface doesn't. Samsung spruced up the S60 5th edition UI with its widget happy TouchWiz UI, but changes didn't go much further than the homescreen. At least now, the Samsung Omnia HD can catch up with the rest of the touchscreen gang.
Finally, there's a new graphic engine, which increases the "the speed to access the multimedia content". Notice the word "access" - this means better playback, but still no stable 24 frames per second for 720p video recording. When we reviewed the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD, the frame rate was our major complaint, after the audio recording issue has been fixed.
Nonetheless, these three things were mentioned in the report on the Omnia HD and Panashe Michael Ngwerume who wrote it can tick them off the checklist. Score one for the Samsung Omnia HD enthusiasts.
The new Omnia HD firmware should be available in January 2010, starting with the UK and then moving on with other European markets, Asia, Africa and the rest of the world. To install the update, you're going to need Samsung PC Studio 7 installed on your computer. You can just download it from Samsung's website.
