Galaxy Beam phone was officially announced at the Mobile World Congress 2012 by Samsung during a press event. Despite taking quite a few features from previous Galaxy phones, the Galaxy Beam is completely unique than all of the preceeding models: it is a projector phone.
This phone has a built in projector at the top and allows users to project multimedia on solid surfaces such as walls, countertops, tables, and anything else flat and solid. Whether the users want to share photos, watch videos, look at maps, or view any other type of media, this phone allows them to do so! No more huddling around a tiny screen, or passing around the phone to see the pictures – the Beam revolutionizes how mobile users share and view media thanks to the extra bright 15 lumens projector.
JK Shin, the president of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung, said: “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”.
Whether you are a professional, a student, at a party, or simply relaxing with friends, the Samsung Galaxy Beam can bring any moment to life with the touch of a button. Want to display a business model to a coworker? Want to watch a class lecture with your study group? Need to liven up a party with some YouTube videos? Or do you simply want to share some family photos at a reunion? Now you can thanks to the Samsung Galaxy Beam!
So what else besides the impressive built in projector sets this smart phone apart from the competition? Well the Galaxy Beam doesn’t have an impressive array of specs: Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and a 1.0 GHz dual core processor. And on top of this, the phone comes with a 5 megapixel camera on the back a 1.3 megapixel camera on the front and the regular connectivity features: GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi. Surprisingly the phone does come with 6 GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy Beam is very visually appealing especially since it has an attractive yellow band that goes all around the outside. Additionally the projector is at the very top above the Samsung logo and it must be pointed straight at whatever the projector target is for the images to be projected properly. Unfortunately, no clue yet when Galaxy Beam phone will be released or what the price will be. Overall, the phone seems interesting for those that have plans to project media files on flat surfaces and for those that that want a regular phone.
