October 12, 2010, By Atul Roach

Samsung has tasted a lot of success in the smartphone arena courtesy of the Google Android OS and the same platform is now going to be a great advantage for its Galaxy tablet lineage as well. In all this, Samsung is still finding time to develop its BADA OS furthermore in Europe as the second BADA smartphone-Samsung Wave II has been announced.

Just if you do not remember, BADA is Samsung’s very own mobile operating system and the first smartphone based on the OS was the Samsung Wave S8500. Wave II is a continuation of the same lineage and it does feature some of the traits from its predecessor.

Some features in common- 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera and HSDPA support. As far as the differences are concerned, Wave II comes with a slightly larger 3.7-inch Super Clear LCD touch screen compared to the 3.3″ Super AMOLED variant of the S8500. Super LCD is reportedly better as it is anti-scratch, anti-smudge and anti-reflective, to name a few qualities.

Talking about the pre-set apps, Samsung Wave II gets a Dolfin Browser 2.0, A-GPS, Social Mapping (Geo-tagging) and 3D maps. It will be available in the UK this December, though the carriers are yet to be announced.
