Update: It seems Samsung Acme was just a code name and the i8910 will actually be called the Samsung Omnia HD
The breaking news today is that a new touchscreen phone from Samsung called the Samsung i8910 is about to be announced at MWC this month.
The Samsung i8910 has been leakeed by Gaj-It.com and will be available in 8GB and 16GB versions.
It is rumoured that it will include a 8 megapixel touchscreen cameraphone, which is no surprise for Samsung’s standards. As well as attracting the click happy bunch, it also includes GPS, HDMI, WiFi, 3.5mm socket, is DNLA and DivX compatible and offers HD recording. It will come in 8GB and 16GB versions and is expected to be a bit on the pricey side.
We’ve known that Samsung are planning around 11 devices for release at MWC this month for a while, the Samsung Loches was another rumoured device with very high specifications. The Loches is a 12.8mm thick slider handset with a black and orange colour scheme. Reminds me of Sony Ericsson’s Walkman phones, however their use of orange was a bit more subtle! It has a duralumin body with anti-scratch and anti-fingerprint coating. It features a 2.8inch OLED touch screen with a WQVGA resolution and 16 million colours, as well as a 12-key keypad.
