Samsung is working hard to up the ante on cellphone camera resolution. But forget digital cameras. With their 8MP, they’re going after camcorders.
The new Omnia HD features a 3.7-inch (360×640) screen, HSUPA, GPS, Bluetooth and either 8 or 16GB of storage along with an additional MicroSDHC slot. But what’s more exciting about this Symbian phone is that it features an 8MP camera (complete with the works like smile detection) and the ability to shoot 1280×720 video at 24fps. You can even do some light editing to the clips before playing them right off the Omnia HD onto your HDTV. The world of independent film just got a whole lot lamer or more awesome. We haven’t decided yet.
