Samsung Wave 3 Announced; Runs on Bada 2.0 OS

Samsung has just announced a trio of new Bada powered handsets – the Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y. All the three handsets run on the recently announced Bada 2.0 OS.

The Wave 3, as the name suggests, is the successor to the original Wave and the Wave 2. The phone has a metal body, unlike Sammy’s highly popular Galaxy S series, and has a slim waistline of 9.9mm. The 3rd generation Wave also packs a 4-inch Super-AMOLED display with WVGA (800×480) resolution.

The handset is powered by a speedy 1.4GHz single-core processor from Qualcomm (MSM8255TT), and packs 512MB of RAM and 3GB of internal memory.

The usual Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi Direct, GPS with A-GPS, microSD card slot and a 3.5mm audio jack are also present. The usual array of sensors are also present. The back of the Wave sports a 5MP camera with an LED flash, which is also capable of recording videos in 720p HD resolution. There is also a front-facing VGA camera for all your video-calling needs.

The Wave 3 runs on the recently announced Bada 2.0 OS, and also features Sammy’s own multi-platform messaging service, ChatOn. The handset will be backed up by a beefy 1500mAh battery.

The Samsung Wave 3 is expected to be available sometime in October this year. Samsung did not mention anything about the pricing of the handset.
