The magic continues to unroll at Barcelona where MWC 2012 is nearly begin already with it’s press conference and pre-event booth displays. Many of us have been waiting for Samsung to reveal another high-end device at the event. While we will know whether or not that happens during Samsung’s event, what we do know is that Samsung’s booth is displaying Samsung Galaxy Beam. The specs of this device aren’t much impressive except one – it has a built-in project in it!
The reason the rest of the specs aren’t much impressive because Galaxy Beam comes with Android 2.3 and a 4-inch WVGA display. The thickness of the device is 12.5mm. While that is not the ideal smartphone thickness, that sure is the slimmest ready-to-use projector phone that you come across.
Galaxy Beam comes with built-in TI DLP nHD (640 x 360) project which is able to light up the big screen for you with 15 lumens of brightness, which is fairly adequate. Since it’s not too slim, it packs a larger 2,000 mAh battery. Samsung says that by the time the device is released, it will be able to run three straights hours of projector use with a single recharge.
The device is definitely not one that would sweep you off your sweet. It has average specs and it’s projector is quite the same, in quality, as that offered by other phone vendors in the past. And like them, it doesn’t work well enough in a bright light environment. Nonetheless, it does come handy for some situations.
