Pushing the boundaries in what we would call normal smartphone features, Samsung has kicked off their MWC announcements with style by unveiling the Samsung Galaxy Beam, a dual-core packing smartphone which includes one incredibly cool feature; an ultra-bright 15 lumens projector, a feature which means users will be able to share photo’s and videos with friends easily. From the look of things, this is one smartphone which makes me want to take my current mobile for some mobile phone recycling .
The projector, placed at the top of the smartphone, looks to have been designed very well too. Essentially, the incorporation of the projector has surprisingly not made the smartphone overly bulky, and it measures just 12.5mm thick.
“Galaxy Beam provides mobile freedom, enabling a unique shared experience around digital content for everyone-anywhere and instantly-from a smartphone as slim and portable as any on the market,” said JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.
Release date and pricing
The Samsung Galaxy Beam is to be released sometime in July this year and will cost UK consumers £385 a pop, making it not overly expensive for what you get at all. For your buck, you’ll be getting that awesome projector feature as well as a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 4-inch 800 x 480p WVGA TFT touchscreen display and 8GB of internal storage expandable up to 32GB via microSD card.
