Description

Samsung Omnia II runs on Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional and sports a very large, 3.7-inch AMOLED WVGA resolution touchscreen. The TouchWiz 2.0 interface is again on board in order to disguise the OS and what’s cooler, users will be able to enjoy Samsung’s vision of a 3D cube interface, as with the Samsung Jet.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
