Samsung's GSMA World Congress press conference doesn't begin for another hour, but details of the company's new phones are popping up on the blogosphere. And in any case, it's hard to keep a product secret when you've plastered huge posters advertising it around the Fira de Barcelona.

According to a Korean news site, Samsung will release just four phones in Barcelona: the S8300 UltraTouch, the i8910 Omnia HD, the BeatDJ, and the BeatDisc. Preliminary details are as follows.

Samsung S8300 UltraTouch--The Ultra Touch has a 2.8-inch touch screen, an 8-megapixel camera, and Samsung's TouchWiz interface.

Samsung i8910 Omnia HD--The Omnia HD builds on the existing Omnia. It should offer HD video; an 8-megapixel camera, featuring HD-level play (Internal: QHD, external: HD); Wi-Fi; GPS; and 3G support.

Samsung BeatDJ--As its name denotes, the BeatDJ will have a music focus. The 2.8-inch touch display will support 16 million colors and will feature a scroll wheel designed to resemble a DJ's turntable. Features should include a 3-megapixel camera, an FM radio, stereo Bluetooth, a memory card slot, GPS, USB mass storage, quad-band GSM world support, and HSDPA 3G.

That's all we know right now. We'll report back soon with more details and photos.
