Samsung has officially announced the arrival of the second Bada handset, the Samsung Wave 723, following leaked images of the device hitting the web on the weekend.

We knew that the device would be coming after Samsung released a statement following the leak, but now we've got detailed spec of the Bada device.

The Wave 723 has a 3.2-inch, WQVGA, TFT-LCD touchscreen and has connectivity via 3G (WCDMA/HSDPA: 900/2100 MHz), Wi-Fi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR and it also has a high speed USB port.

Its camera is a 5-megapixel one with an LED Flash, auto-focus and you can also geo-tag and edit your shots on board. Videos are QVGA (encoded MPEG H.263, H.264).

It has the TouchWiz 3.0 UI with integrated phonebook and there's 90MB of memory on board - although you can chuck in a microSD to expand this tiny amount.

Simon Stanford, head of Samsung Mobile UK & Ireland, said: "The launch of this device clearly underlines our commitment to smartphone products on different platforms and forms part of our strategy to deliver a wide range of handsets designed to suit a multitude of users.

"It’s also the latest handset to support our open platform, bada, which gives developers new opportunities for the creation of apps".

The Samsung Wave 723 is out in mainland Europe during September, but we'll have to wait until later on in the year to get it here in the UK.
