Samsung announced in Germany its Wave II S8530, successor to its first Bada-based phone, the Wave S8500. Not to be confused with the entry-level Wave 2 S5250 Bada phone, the new Wave II S8530 is minor update to the S8500.
The Wave II S8530 comes with a 3.7-inch touchscreen, which is bigger but uses Super Clear LCD panel instead of 3.3-inch Super AMOLED on original Wave (probably due to the shortage of Super AMOLED panel). The Wave II packs a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5 Megapixel camera with HD video recording, HSPA support and WiFi connectivity.
The new Bada phone will be released in November for Euro 429. Personally, I would consider the Wave II as one of Samsung’s solutions to the shortage of Super AMOLED. What do you think?
