Samsung has officially launched its low-end Windows Phone handset, Omnia M S7530, months after its announcement.
The South Korean smartphone maker revealed that the Omnia M will run on Windows 7.5 Tango, which will soon be outdated with the impending arrival of Windows Phone 8, and a specs sheet that appears to be a stripped-down version of the Omnia W.
The handset runs on a single-core 1 GHz processor with 384 MB of RAM and 4 GB built-in storage, whereas the Omnia W comes with a 1.4 GHz CPU and 512 MB of RAM.
The Omnia M, however, carries a larger 4.0-inch Super AMOLED display (Omnia W has a 3.7-inch display). Both have the same 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash that is not capable of capturing 720p HD videos.
Fast connectivity is covered by 3G HSDPA speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps, a drop from the 14.4 Mbps on the Omnia W.
The Omnia M tags along an official price of Rs.18,650 (about $336) in India, which actually has no logical reason since the Omnia W now costs lesser.
If you intend to buy the handset when it arrives in your market, look for local deals to buy it at a cheaper price.
