Samsung's newly launched Omnia 7 Windows Phone 7-based handset will be offered by T-Mobile, Orange and Three in the UK.
The phone was unveiled by Microsoft at events in New York and London on Monday, which also saw the launch of other Windows Phone 7-based smartphones from LG, HTC and Dell.
In the UK, Three will offer the smartphone for free with a 24 month contract at £40 per month, from 21 October. Other service providers, T-Mobile and Orange will also offer the phone for free but will charge £35 per month for a 2 year contract.
The smartphone comes with a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen, similar to the one found on the Galaxy 6, and will be powered by a Qualcomm 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The Omnia 7 will also feature a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and HD video recording capabilities.
Similar to other Windows Phone 7 handsets, the smartphone features an internal 8GB memory and 1500mAh LiOn battery.
