Further details regarding the Samsung GT-I8000 have emerged, and it seems that you're looking at the Samsung Omnia II (or Omnia2; the nomenclature isn't decided yet).  Packing a 3.7-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen - that's tipped to use an AMOLED panel - the Omnia II has an 8.1-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and VGA video recording at 30fps.
