Samsung Omnia 7 and LG Optimus 7 announced ahead of the official WP7 launch
Hey, the Windows Phone 7 launch event hasn't even started, and the dam is already leaking from numerous holes. Not that we haven't explored the two officially confirmed WP7 prematurely before. First LG upped a page on its site, announcing the LG Optimus 7, which was subsequently pulled down, but a cached version remained. The handset will sport a 3.8” capacitive touchscreen, 5MP camera with LED Flash and HD video capture, 16GB of internal memory, 1500mAh battery, and the full suite of sensors one would expect from a modern smartphone. At 0.45" (11.5mm), it is also pretty thin.

What the LG Optimus 7 has going for it, though, is the LG-specific services such as the DLNA-based Play To feature, which allows the user to stream multimedia to any enabled device via Wi-Fi. It also sports Voice-to-Text, for typing and voice commands, and the Scansearch augmented reality function, which overlays the real world with entertainment, dining, banking, etc., information of your choosing.
 
Speaking of exclusive features, Samsung also unveiled its first Windows Phone 7 mobile, and it is the Samsung Omnia 7. This handset will be only the second after the Samsung Galaxy S to boast a 4" Super AMOLED screen, which is a great way for Samsung to differentiate itself from the competition.

The rest of the specs are nothing to sniff at either, with 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, 5MP camera with LED flash plus HD video capture, and 8GB of internal memory. Samsung has still kept one exclusive feature for its current Android and bada flagships - namely the Hummingbird chipset, but 1GHz Snapdragon would probably suffice for everything you throw at the phone anyway.

What do you think about the design of the Windows Phone 7 handsets so far?

The back of Omnia7 looks like the Samsung Wave.

I like the LG's robotic lens array...
