This is the second product that Samsung has announced at the Mobile World Congress 2012, we’ve already told you about the first one. This new device is also part of the Galaxy family, but is very different from all of them. Everybody loves a different mobile device, and this one sports a built in projector. The Samsung Galaxy Beam is the first device in the Galaxy lineup that features a built in Pico projector.
So far, many mobile manufacturers have produced phones that carry a projector, but as far as I know none have been very successful. Why did they fail? The main reason was the sheer size of such devices and the poor battery life. The Galaxy Beam, however, is not like the others. The Samsung Galaxy Beam has a 4 inch display and also runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. That, combined with a projector does sound like a pretty good package. Here are the complete specifications of the device.
Samsung Galaxy Beam Complete Specifications
- Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
- A 4 inch WVGA TFT display with 480×800 resolution
- 1 GHz Dual-Core Processor
- 1 GB of RAM
- 5 megapixel rear camera with Auto-focus and Flash, a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera for video calls
- 8GB of Internal Memory expandable via MicroSD slot (up to 32GB)
- Bluetooth 3.0＋HS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz, MicroUSB, USB 2.0 and 3.5mm audio jack

The best part about the Galaxy beam is that it has a very slim profile for a phone with a projector. It can be easily carried around in your pockets and doesn’t actually look like it has a projector.
See what I mean? You can use that projector to share photos and videos with all your friends, which I’m sure, sounds fun. The pricing details haven’t been announced yet, but we’ll be sure to update you when it is. Record 720p HD videos using that 5 megapixel camera and then share it with your family and friends. No need to transfer it to your computer, then show it on the big screen!
