A leaked roadmap of Samsung indicate new devices on the way this year powered by Windows Phone 7, Android, and Samsung’s own bada smartphone platform.
According to the readmap, “new Android devices set to arrive before the end of the year. The most exciting of these is the I9250, an Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) handset with a huge 4.65-” Super AMOLED display and HD resolution (1280×720), apparently due for end of November,” revealed the roadmap by Telefonino.net.
Also, just few weeks before I9250, the I9220 is expected, including HD resolution, though on a slightly smaller 4.3″ Super AMOLED display. Powered by Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread), it’ll have a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 8MP camera.
On the tablet front, the P6200 is due around the end of October, with 7 “es of Super AMOLED, resolution will only be SVGA (1024×600). Powered by Honeycomb (Android 3.x), it’ll include 3MP rear-facing and 2MP front-facing cameras, and will have built in HDSPA support; the P6210 will be a Wi-Fi-only variant of the same device.
The roadmap points to only one “Mango” Windows Phone 7 device arriving this year, the i8350 Omnia – with due date in October. The specs: 3.7-” WVGA (480×800), 1GHz processor, 5MP camera, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth.
And, of course not to forget Bada, the three Bada handsets are due: the S5380 with 3.2″ display and 2MP camera, and the S8600 Wave III, with 3GB of on-board storage and a 5MP camera, although it does at least have a 4-” Super AMOLED screen. All three devices are powered by Bada 2.0, and include Bluetooth 3.0.
