Samsung has confirmed that its second-generation Bada-powered handset, the Samsung Wave II, will be getting a UK release in December.
We tested the first Samsung Wave not so long ago and while it definitely had some good points, the Bada OS didn’t really impress us overall.
Nevertheless, this hasn’t stopped Samsung doing another Bada-powered handset and the Samsung Wave II is due to land on UK shores in the very near future.
Specs wise, the Wave II doesn’t feature as good a screen as the Wave with Samsung opting to drop the Super AMOLED and replace it with a LCD WVGA display.
There’s also TouchWiz 3.0 UI onboard, a 1GHz processor, HSDPA, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS connectivity, a microSD slot and access to Samsung Apps.
In addition to this, there’s also TV-out, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with flash and 720p HD video recording, which ain’t too shabby.
There’s no word on pricing as yet, but the release date is reported as December. We reckon it’ll be around the £300 mark SIM-free and free on selected contracts.
