Samsung Reservist II to property 3.7″ Caretaker Enlighten LCD and Swype-like keyboard for bada

Now we apperceive the overarching catechism back you apprehend the appellation of this account bit – why would Samsung actuate of its aggressive advantage in smartphone acreage for the Wave II? The aboriginal Samsung Wave alien the best the aggregation can action – 1GHz Hummingbird chipset, and a 3.3″ Super AMOLED screen.

The chipset was so snappy, and the awning so vibrant, that we were accommodating to discount the beginning operating arrangement with hardly any applications yet accounting for it. After that, the aggregation appear some low-end additions to the Wave portfolio – Wave 2 and Wave 2 Pro – which are yet to see the daylight. Then it launched the Wave 723, a mid-range bada phone, which we advised not continued ago.

Now, out of the blue, Samsung is announcement the high-end almsman of the aboriginal Wave, but this time with a 3.7″ WVGA Super Clear LCD screen, area the blow blanket is activated anon on the screen, with no air gap in-between. A agnate technology Samsung uses for its Super AMOLED displays. The Wave II is active the aforementioned 1GHz Hummingbird chipset, as its predecessor, and appearance 5MP camera with LED flash, able of HD video recording. It additionally sports Bluetooth 3.0 and Trace, a atypical argument ascribe method, agnate to Swype, but tailored for bada.

We have no doubts in the merits of the Super Clear LCD screen. After all, the iPhone 4 proved you can have a thin handset with a power-sipping screen, even if it is not Super AMOLED. The question is why would Samsung dispose of its main advantage in the cut-throat smartphone business for a high-end handset?

We know that the Koreans, like the rest of the world, are running low on production capacity for AMOLED screens, and everything goes towards the Galaxy S and its entourage. With the announcement of the Wave II sporting a 3.7″ SLCD, we are more inclined to believe it. Moreover, the plant that will increase the AMOLED capacity of the company tenfold, is not going to be operational until next summer, so Samsung does what it can. Moreover, it holds a controlling stake in the joint venture with Sony that makes the Super LCDs, which go into the 3.7″ HTC Desire and Droid Incredible, after supply issues held them from receiving the intended 3.7″ AMOLEDs. Still, that doesn’t prevent the company from charging 428 EUR (~$585), for the Wave II, when it appears in Germany come November.
