Samsung Omnia W is now official: 3.7-inch screen and a sleek simplistic design
The Samsung Omnia W has just joined Samsung’s Windows Phone Mango fleet, which is looking pretty comprehensive now with the Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash. The W, in Samsung’s new naming convention, goes for Wonder, or “high quality, strategic models, perfect for those seeking a balance between style and performance.”

And stylish the Omnia W is - with a rather thin 0.43-inch profile and relatively lightweight 4.07-ounce body. Designwise, it's similar to the original Omnia 7, but instead of going for a strictly rectangular shape, here the edges are rounded. It's also a hair thinner and half an ounce lighter. But the key word in the description of the W series seems to be balance as the handset doesn’t shine with anything in particular in the hardware department.

It features a 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, while under the hood a 1.4GHz processor runs along with 512MB of RAM. On the back, there’s a 5-megapixel camera recording 720p video footage, while up front a VGA shooter will make video conferencing easier.The rest is pretty standard - 14.4Mbps HSPA connectivity, 8 gigs of on-board memory, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi b/g/n and A-GPS.

The handset is expected to hit European shores by the end of October, and there’s no word yet as to stateside availability, but we’ll update you on that as soon as we have more details. The price is also an unknown, but it should be in line with other mid-range offerings. What’s your initial impression about that sleek-looking but not overly powerful Omnia W?
