Samsung Leaksville

Just came across this leaked i8910, codenamed “Acme.”

If the rumors prove true, and I hope they do, we’re looking at an S60 touch device with an 8MP camera and—wait for it!—HD video recording! That’s a minimum of 1024×768 (XGA), folks, though most likely 1280×720 (720p). That certainly blows the measly 640×480 recording I’m used to out of the water.

If memory serves, this is one of two 8MP phones that will be announced at MWC in less than two weeks. The other one should be the i8510 successor with optical zoom. It will be interesting to see how the other specs of these two devices compare—optical zoom is a very nice feature, but how will the video recording be? And will the OZ model have a touchscreen? Time will tell. Either way, this i8910 is very enticing.

Also the codename is amusing. Acme. Reminds me of the Looney Tunes cartoons where the Acme company was able to build just about anything. Perhaps that is the idea.

UPDATE: Another report, this time suggesting a very large screen.  We shall see.  One thing’s for sure—MWC is going to rock.
