Samsung claims the Wave II will deliver a superior user-experience and its ‘enhanced Super Clear LCD screen provides a stunning viewing experience’.

Featuring a 1GHz processor and 5Mp autofocus camera, Samsung has also included a new method of inputting text designed to make texting faster and easier. QuickType by T9 Trace allows users to drag their fingers over the virtual keypad, with the phone determining which word the user is trying to spell.

In addition, Samsung has included ‘Social Hub’ which pulls together information from a user’s phonebook, social networks, instant messenger and email onto a single page.

Not to be confused with the Samsung Wave 2, announced in June and recently renamed the Wave 525, the Wave II is set to hit UK shops in December. Pricing and network availability is yet to be announced.
