Samsung Galaxy Beam Announced; Its A Phone And A Projector!
By on February 26th, 2012

Along with the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Samsung also unveiled the first phone in the Galaxy series that comes equipped with a projector. Samsung’s earlier efforts at releasing a phone with a projector has failed miserably, but the company aims to attain some degree of success this time with its Galaxy brand.

The Galaxy Beam comes with a 4-inch TFT display with WVGA (800×480) resolution, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, a 5MP camera at the back aided by an LED flash with the ability to record videos in 720p resolution, and a 1.3MP camera in the front. The usual bunch of connectivity features and sensors like Bluetooth 3.0+HS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Accelerometer, Compass and Gyroscope etc. A beefy 2000mAh battery also powers the Beam, which runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with TouchWIZ on top of it.

Inspite of packing in a projector, the Beam is pretty thin at 12.5mm. The mini projector on the Beam is capable of beaming a wide range of multimedia content up to 50″ wide.

The press release from Samsung does not mention anything as to when the handset will be available to the general public!
