Samsung Galaxy Beam: New Smartphone With HD Projector

Over at Mobile World Congress 2012, Samsung has just unveiled their latest smartphone called Galaxy Beam. This ‘beam’ here is not a type of smartphone with a laser pointer. It’s pointing at the new built-in HD projector that could project 50-feet wide display from the phone using a 15-LUMENS projector brightness.

Okay, it sounds like an interesting phone with a projector built-in, but to be honest, 15 LUMENS is not enough for projecting a clear image onto the wall when it’s 50-feet large. An A4 size might be good, but not a larger one since the image is getting darker. Though I’m not sure how Samsung will bright it up since it has got a special feature called “Ultra brightness”. This is something that I’ll want to check it out before judging further.

As for the specification, Samsung Galaxy Beam is nowhere near as its brothers like Note or Nexus phone. According to the source, Galaxy Beam will come with 4-inch 800 x 480p touchscreen display, 1GHz dual core processor, 5MP rear facing and 1.3MP front-facing camera, 8GB of onboard storage (upgradable via MicroSD card) and it has a quad-band HSPA+ network connectivity.

Again, this guy is not going to be the brightest star in 2012. Most smartphones have jumped on the quad core Tegra 3 CPU, but Samsung Galaxy Beam is still using the common dual core CPU. No idea what’s cooking in Samsung’s mind, but I guess this type of phone won’t last long in the market.
