Interestingly, MWC 2012 has just started and it looks like a great start because one of the very first devices to be announced is a smartphone which is capable of projecting images of 50 inch size. Yes, it looks like an idea came from sci fi movies but Samsung has brought it to the real life by introducing this new smartphone named as Samsung Galaxy Beam. Obviously, it is an Android smartphone and as you can see its name, it has the built in projector to project images and videos of 50 inch size.
The built in projector has a brightness output of 15 lumens, while its predecessor had only 6 lumens brightness which makes it a very decent upgrade and that’s why it is capable of displaying high definition images having size up to 50 inches.
You might be wondering that due to the addition of this built in projector, the smartphone might be bulky and unbearable but that is not the case with Samsung Galaxy Beam. It is pretty lean handset having 12.5 mm thickness which is quite reasonable as well as acceptable for a modern smartphone. I think a lot of people might be curious about the other hardware specs of the device besides the built in projector. So, this smartphone has a 4.0 inch WVGA display and it is powered by a 1.0 GHz dual core processor under the hood. On the rear side, it brings a 5 MP auto focus camera which is capable of capturing 720p video at 30 frames per second, while there is also a 1.3 MP front camera for video chats. Samsung Galaxy Beam will be bringing 8 GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD cards. Obviously, if you want to project images on the wall of your living room then you will require a powerful battery that does not run out of juice quickly, so Galaxy Beam is powered by a 2000 mAh battery.
MWC 2012 in Barcelona is starting in a few days and Samsung will officially display this device at the event. So, we will keep you updated about it, stay tuned.
