Samsung Galaxy Beam Projector Smartphone

Posted on 15 March 2012

The Samsung Galaxy Beam turned heads when it first made its appearance in the Mobile World Congress (MWC), and it was again easily one of the highlights of the Samsung Forum 2012 held earlier today at the Bangkok Convention Center. And why not when it’s definitely bringing something new to the table.

We’re all used to the multi-functionality of smartphones, but you have to hand it to Samsung to think of putting in a projector on a smartphone. With the ultra-slim 15 Lumen DLP (Digital Light Projector) built-in on the Samsung Galaxy Beam, you can bet that this phone will be a staple for parties, on-the-go presentations, and also a new way of sharing photos and videos taken using the camera phone on the fly. You can bet that grandparents everywhere will soon be projecting 50-inch images of their grand kids for all their friends to see. It also comes with an over head projector (OHP) and ambiance modes.

Aside from the novelty of the projector phone, this is also one decent smartphone with a 1GHz dual core processor, 4-inch display (only 480 x 800 pixel resolution though), a 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, and an 8GB internal storage with a microSD slot up to 32GB. In terms of connectivity the Samsung Galaxy Beam comes with the usual Bluetooth 3.0, micro USB port, and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz. It also comes with a 2,000 mAh battery, and a promise of up to 3 hours of continuous play time.

Pricing and release for the Samsung Galaxy Beam is still to be announced.
