Anonymous, 22 Sep 2008amazing lens ??? whats the name of the lens ?? Samsung or its a special lens with a different nameSamsung also camera lens manufacture. They produce CCD lens module for Samsung Digital Camera named Samsung Digicam and produce CMOS lens module for mobile phone. Samsung are the first to introduce 8 megapixel camera module for mobile phone (used by Sony Ericsson C905 and Samsung GT-i8510 INNOV8).
15.5mm thin??? That is thick in anyone’s book, anything under 14mm is what we call thin. I do hope this phone gets released soon, then Samsung should reduce the price of the Omnia 12.5mm THIN now that’s more like it.
john, 21 Sep 2008hopefully this has a qwerty board!Hopefully this phone will not have a hardware keyboard
people who are worried about the quality of the lens, you can check the review by GSMarena on theSamsung INNOV8. most likly it will be the same lens and the pictures quality is excellent i can see from the pictures in the review.
CSingh, 22 Sep 2008excellent question tira actually samsung cameras use an amazing lens as good as carl zeiss or ... moreamazing lens ??? whats the name of the lens ?? Samsung or its a special lens with a different name
tira, 21 Sep 2008oops. i've just dropped my idea of getting innov8... :) i know 8mp for a phone is like mark... moreexcellent question tira actually samsung cameras use an amazing lens as good as carl zeiss or shneider
ok this will definitely NOT run on windows mobile, as pathetically enough, windows mobile doesn't support any screen shows 65K colours or more. it should run on symbian (fingers crossed).
tira, 21 Sep 2008oops. i've just dropped my idea of getting innov8... :) i know 8mp for a phone is like mark... moreLOL ...samsung has cameras you know ? ... and it has 10 mpx photo cameras so 8 mpx it long ago ... it has SH lens they are incredible ... i already have a 10 mpx camera from samsung and it's great:P
oops. i've just dropped my idea of getting innov8... :)
i know 8mp for a phone is like marketing gimmicks, it's the lens that counts..
just curious: if nokia's using carl zeiss lens, sony ericsson has cybershot, LG's using Schenider lens, then what is samsung using?? saw picture samples taken by omnia, they are crisp and colours are great. and so are the ones taken by innov8 too..
i was about to buy Samsung Omina, now ill wait for this one. it seems to be a complete package.
i hope it functions flawlessly as Nokia phones.
lee, 21 Sep 2008if this phone ever does see the light of day this will b samsungs 2nd 8mp phone and 2nd 3.2 to... moreNokia only mobile phone manufacture, software and Telecommunication(join with Siemens).
Samsung, LG and Sony Ericsson(read:Sony) are bigger electronic manufacture. They easily added some high end feature they have to their mobile phone like camera(Samsung, Sony Cybershot), processor(Samsung), audio engine(Sony Walkman, Samsung DNSe), LCD (Samsung, LG, Sony Bravia), NAND Memory (Samsung), etc.
Nokia now have NGage, but Sony Ericsson can kick easily with PSP Phone or Samsung with XBox Phone(join with Microsoft like their previous work to make HDXBox).
I believe 80% Nokia mobile phone hardware are from other manufacture like Toshiba, Hitachi, etc.
In future, I think Nokia should concentrate with their software like Google, Microsoft, etc. Also not surprise Nokia bought all Symbian share and develop OVI, MOSH, etc.
