The Samsung Focus isn't the only Samsung handset announced today to feature the Windows Phone 7 operating system. The Samsung Omnia 7, which joins the Omnia family populated by the Omnia HD and Omnia II, will hop on over to Europe.

The quad-band GSM Omnia 7 world phone packs a 4-inch Super AMOLED display that we found brilliant on all the Samsung Galaxy S phones. The screen's WVGA configuration supports 800x480 pixels.

The Omnia 7 has a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and HD video recording (720p) and supports H.246 HD video playback. It has a digital music player on board, an FM radio, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. The 4.87-ounce Omnia 7 runs on a 1GHz processor, this time a Qualcomm QSD8250. It stands 4.8 inches tall, 2.5 inches wide, and less than half an inch thick.

The Omnia 7 will be available on the Orange, Deutsche Telekom AG, SFR, and MoviStar networks in countries like the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Spain. You can pick it up with 8GB or 16GB memory. Stay tuned for details on pricing and availability.
