Theis crashing over the White Cliffs of Dover and into UK shops, available to buy today from O2 and Phones4u.
The Wave 2 laps up after the, a phone whose hardware we rather appreciated. The sequel was , and is only now making its way to British pockets. It's looking like another scrumptious lump of mobile tech though, with a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, and a 3.7-inch LCD touchscreen with a resolution of 480x800 pixels.
There's 2GB of storage, expandable up to 32GB with a microSD card, and most perhaps most interesting of all, a 1GHz processor lurking in the Wave 2's innards.
Hopefully that can keep this phone running swiftly, without the juddery lag that's been the ruin of so many smart-phone pretenders.
Still, Samsung reckons its Social Hub application -- which syncs your social networks, email and IM accounts with your contacts book -- will tickle users' fancy.
If you catch this new Wave before 31 March, Samsung will throw in a free entertainment package redeemable when you visit this website. The bundle features five games, including Need for Speed: Shift, FIFA 10, Monopoly, Tetris and Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles. Whether a sprinkling of free games will be enough to tempt buyers remains to be seen -- you could get loads more free games if you bought an Android phone.
The Samsung Wave 2 can be yours for free for £20 per month on an 18-month contract with O2 -- check out other deals by clicking right here.
