MWC 2012: Samsung announces new projector smartphone, the Galaxy Beam.

Lately we’ve seen a lot of phones with projectors in the local market. With the most recent one being the Maxx Focus MTP9. On a global scale? It’s Samsung that’s brought its own sweet little surprise to the MWC 2012. From the design itself, this looks like one hell of a phone, but the projector at the top only means that it’s going to be a fingerprint magnet, pretty soon. But again, we wouldn’t prefer it anywhere else. Also, it’s super thin for a projector phone, and is fairly light at 145.3 grams. This one has a 15 lumens lamp and has the capacity of projecting a 50-inch wide high-definition picture.

Without further ado, here’s what the rest of the spec sheet of the Samsung Galaxy Beam looks like:

4-inch WVGA TFT display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels
1GHz dual core processor
Android 2.3 Gingerbread
6Gb RAM, 8GB internal memory
5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, 720p recording
1.3 megapixel front camera
3G, EDGE / GPRS, Wi-Fi
Bluetooth 3.0+ HS
microSD card slot expandable up to 32GB
3.5 mm headphone jack
2000 mAh battery

The phone is expected to ship with Gingerbread onboard and that seems to be quite puzzling. Also, before you get way too excited about having 6 gigs of RAM on a phone (when most laptops still don’t come with it) the 6Gb of RAM might actually be 768 MB, with the ‘b for bit (and not byte)’ being the key factor. Here's a product video for the Galaxy Beam, courtesy user giancarlo.
