The phone officially launched on July 31, 2012, and was originally for sale exclusively through Phones 4u in the United Kingdom at £289.95. In Italy and other European markets, the device launched for €294.99. The Omnia M was also released in Brazil for R$799. When the Omnia M was launched in China, the variant sold by China Unicom shipped with 8 GB of internal storage instead of the usual 4 GB.
The Omnia M received mixed feedback upon its announcement and launch. Reviewers noted the relatively high price for the device compared to its hardware specifications and competing devices. The device was praised for its build, camera, display, and battery life; however, its low RAM and built-in storage were areas of concern, as the 4 GB variant had only 2.5 GB of user-accessible storage due to default applications. Additionally, the lack of HSPA+ or DC-HSPA+ was criticized as providing insufficient data speed compared to other devices. The device was also compared to its predecessor, the Omnia W.
