Samsung Wave: Super AMOLED, 720p, 1GHz CPU

Last week rumors did the rounds that said Samsung would release its first Super AMOLED phone. The supposed specs had smartphone fans frothing at the mouth, so how nice when Sunday's announcement bore a slim and sleek device with a 3.3-inch Super AMOLED screen.

With a 1GHz processor and 2GB of internal memory, the Wave is HD ready with 720p playback at 30fps. Running on Samsung's Bada OS, the phone features social networking, content management, location-based services, push notification and commerce services. It packs a messaging service called Social Hub, which, once you register all your accounts, will send you updates from Google, Yahoo, MSN, Facebook, Twitter and more.

User interface aside, eWeek reports that the Wave has 5.0-megapixel camera with LED flash, A-GPS with on/off board navigation and 3D maps, voice command, an RSS reader, Bluetooth 3.0 technology and USB 2.0 functionality.
