Samsung Wave 2 and Samsung Wave 2 Pro lap at the shore

The Samsung Wave 2 and Samsung Wave 2 Pro continue the watery theme of the Samsung Wave, offering touchscreen phones with the Bada operating system

Samsung's first phone to run its new Bada operating system, the Samsung Wave, is only just out, but sequels are already in the air. The Samsung Wave 2 and Samsung Wave 2 Pro, the second and third phones to rock the new OS, were shown off in Singapore today.

Both the Waves have 81mm (3.2-inch) touchscreens, while the Wave 2 (pictured) adds a slide-out Qwerty keyboard. Both phones offer the latest 802.11n standard Wi-Fi, GPS and access to a humble collection of apps and widgets available for the Bada platform.

Sadly, neither phone has 3G support, so you may find Web surfing is a little slow when you're not on Wi-Fi. 

The Wave 2 and Wave 2 Pro will wash up on the far-off shores of Russia and Asia this summer, but Samsung wouldn't comment on when we'll see them arrive in the UK.
