The Samsung Beat DJ, otherwise known as the M7600, has also been confirmed. We reported on the unofficial announcement of the Beat DJ last week. The device is an attractive-looking, touchscreen mobile phone with rounded edges. It features a 3Mp camera, HSDPA support and 50MB of internal memory.
Mix and 'scratch' music
The phone also sports a range of music editing features, which allow users to mix and 'scratch' music files.
Jon Barrow, Which? mobile phone expert, said: 'High-end, premium smartphones are stealing the headlines at this year's Mobile World Congress, and the new Omnia HD from Samsung is no exception. The HD recording capabilities are likely to prove popular with consumers - just don't expect the quality to match what you can achieve with an HD camcorder.
