Linux Mobile device gets 8MP camera, OLED display

Images have surfaced of an unannounced Samsung handset running on the LiMo platform and headed for Vodafone. The images, posted on the Boy Genius Report, show a brushed steel housing and an OLED screen with haptic feedback. The device is said to get an 8-megapixel camera, although further hardware specs remain unknown.

The Linux mobile OS has been tailored specifically for Vodafone, integrating the rumored 'Vodafone Mobile' service. Users will allegedly be able to take advantage of active contacts, location-based services and status updates, along with access to popular social networking portals such as Facebook.

Samsung in February confirmed plans to launch a LiMo device sometime this year, although the company has not yet provided any official details. LiMo-based handsets are also expected this year from other carriers such as Verizon, NTT DoCoMo, Orange, SK Telecom and Telefonica.

The leaked handset is said to be initially a Vodafone exclusive, although it remains unknown if other carriers will offer the device down the road. The device is rumored to be part of a special event held in London on September 24th.
