Samsung Wave II now on sale

South Korean electronics conglomerate Samsung has just announced the Bada OS based Wave II has arrived in the UK, with O2 and Phones 4U.

The Samsung Wave II is the flagship successor to the original Wave handset from mid-last year, which was the first phone to feature Samsung’s new mobile Bada operating system - where the Wave II runs from 1.2 of that platform.

Samsung’s GT-S8530 Wave II arrives with a 3.7-inch 480x800 Super Clear LCD touch screen with improved visibility outdoors, whilst also containing anti-scratch, anti-smudge and anti-reflective capabilities.

The handset tips up with a 5 megapixel camera with a flash and HD front-facing video capture, along with better social networking integration from the TouchWiz 3.0 UI.

Samsung’s Wave II is powered by a 1Ghz processor, in a chassis that’s only 11.8mm thin where its just a tad larger than the Sony Ericsson Xperia 8.7mm Arc.

The handset manufacture is also offering a free entertainment package for anyone buying the Wave II, all of which is geared up for app-lovers and includes Need for Speed: Shift; FIFA 10; Monopoly; Tetris and Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chronicles.

Phones 4U has the Samsung Wave II gratis with Vodafone, on a £20 a month tariff that is accompanied by 100 minutes and 500 text messages, or with Orange on the same minutes, 3000 text messages and a 250MB data allowance.
