You have to admit it, it's not everyday that you get to see a smartphone with built-in projector. It is also not that common today. Back in 2010, Samsung released its first projector smartphone and they named it the Samsung Galaxy Beam. You may not see any of the old Galaxy Beam around, but if you look in the right place, you will. Forward to 2012, Samsung released a newer version of this handset and named it the Galaxy Beam as well.
It is quite sad that the production of the first Galaxy Beam did not hit the masses. But in Asia, it was a different story. But still, if the first projector phone by Samsung was able to reach the US and Europe market then it will be a different story. With its 3.7 "AMOLED display and 8MP shutter with 720p video recording capability, it was a superb handset back in 2010.
Moving on, Samsung have decided to give their first projector phone a wider audience through the new Samsung Galaxy Beam. Yes it missed a huge opportunity when it failed to appear during the Mobile World Congress 2012, but then again here it is now out in the open. Samsung have decided to be careful this time around and who can blame them? The new Beam may be a downgrade of its original version (ie AMOLED to LCD, memory cut down to half, slashed camera MP, etc.) but then again it comes in with an upgraded processing prowess. With its 1GHz dual-core processor, you sure can bet on it that this is a speedy handset. Even though the new Beam lost a couple of camera resolutions, its new 15 lumens truly makes up for it. The doubled RAM is also a welcomed addition to the handset. It may not be a total upgrade but at the same time it is also not a total downgrade.
So what else can you expect from this handset? Well, there is the phone's 2,000 mAh battery. There is also the Wi-Fi connectivity option. You will also get the Polaris Office document viewer and editor. The phone runs on Android Gingerbread with TouchWiz 4.0. This handset now comes in with a larger display screen at 4 "with 16M colors (480 x 800 pixels) The phone's new dimensions are at 124 x 64.2 x 12.5 mm and it weighs in at 145.3 grams only.
These are just some of the things that you will enjoy on the latest Samsung Galaxy Beam. This is Samsung's newest projector phone and this is more than interesting.
