First Omnia HD/i8910 official photo

The first official press photo has leaked from…somewhere.  It matters not where it came from—what matters is that it’s here and we can clearly see that it’s running S60 (as evidenced by the signal strength and battery indicators at top) and that it has a custom TouchWiz skin/overlay in place of the standard standby screen.

I was wondering if Samsung would put such an overlay in the phone, and now it’s clear they did.  I think it’s a great move and will help greatly with the phone’s finger-friendliness.  Couple that with the rumored capacitive AMOLED screen, and this phone will be a pleasure to use.

If you don’t like TouchWiz, like all S60 phones, the custom overlay can be turned off and the standard standby screen can used instead.
