Meet Samsung’s latest Bada-powered phone, the Wave II S8530. This is already their fifth Bada offering and will replace their very first Bada phone, the Samsung Wave, which debuted just earlier this year.
The Samsung Wave II (no relation to the Wave 2 which they announced back in June) ditches the Super AMOLED display in favor of a Super Clear LCD screen, and ups its touchscreen from an average 3.2-inch to a more respectable 3.7-inch sized one. This baby also boasts of a 5-megapixel camera with flash, 720p HD video recording, WiFi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 3.0, HSDPA connectivity, GPS, 3.5mm jack, TV-out, microSD card for additional storage (up to 32GB), and runs on a 1GHz processor. Not a whole lot of changes going on here, but it still looks quite tempting nonetheless.
The Samsung Wave II S8530 is scheduled to arrive in Germany next month with a retail price of €429 or close to $590 in the greenback. No word yet about North American availability, but if we were to guess, it would probably debut either early 2011 or early December at best in time for the holidays.
