Pre-order sexy Samsung Galaxy Beam via Expansys
We’ve been bringing readers news about the Samsung Galaxy Beam projector phone since its reveal at MWC 2012. While we see many smartphones come and go, this one captured the attention of many particularly because it features a built-in Pico projector. Today’s news is that the Samsung Galaxy Beam is now up for pre-order through Expansys.
The Samsung Galaxy Beam has decent enough specs but the highlight is undoubtedly its 15 lumens projector, which enables transfer of multimedia content from the handset onto a large surface such as as wall or ceiling with images up to 50-inches. Other specs and features include a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch LCD display with resolution of 800×480, 768MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and microSD slot for up to 32GB, 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front facing camera.
There’s also a 2000mAh battery, microUSB port, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and GPS and it all runs on Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread OS, which will hopefully receive an upgrade to 4.0 ICS at some point. The built-in projector adds a little to the bulk of this smartphone so the Galaxy Beam is a sturdy 12.5mm. However Samsung has managed to keep the weight down as it weighs in at 145.3g, only a little more than the current iPhone.
News that the Galaxy Beam is now available to pre-order came to us from ITProPortal although there is no release date available just yet. Pre-orders are available through Expansys here at a Sim-Free price of Â£429.99. If you want to see the Galaxy Beam more closely then check out the video below this story for a hands-on look.
