Samsung Galaxy Beam projector-phone goes up for pre-order at Rs. 29,990
Samsung has started taking preorders for the Samsung Galaxy Beam, an Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone from Samsung’s stable that boasts of an inbuilt projector. The Galaxy Beam runs on a 1GHz dual-core processor, 768MB RAM and has a 4-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels.
For now, there is no information on whether the device will be upgradable to Android 4.0 ICS or 4.1 Jelly Bean but we expect that the device does qualify to warrant an upgrade. The device also boasts of a 5MP rear camera as well as a 1.3MP video call camera. The phone comes with 8GB internal storage with a microSD slot up to 32GB, Bluetooth 3.0, micro USB port, Wireless N and weighs in 145 grams. It also features a 2,000 mAh battery, hopefully providing the juice for all day usage.
The built-in projector of the device has 15 lumens brightness. It can project images up to 50-inches, and will be able to playback the media from the internal storage as well as a memory card.
Samsung originally announced the Galaxy Beam at MWC 2012 and we got a closer look at the device at the Samsung South West Asia Regional Forum 2012 held in Bangkok. At the event, Ranjit Yaday, Country Head, Mobile and IT, Samsung India Electronics Pvt. Ltd. said “The 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 in the market”.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy SIII, users who preorder the device will have to pay the full amount at the time of preordering. The device is priced at Rs. 29,990.
