Samsung Galaxy Beam i8520 to be launched in July with Android 2.1, beam projector
While officially unveiling the Wave 2, Wave 2 Pro and its two new Windows Mobile smartphones, Samsung has also announced that its i8520 projector phone (first seen in February) has been renamed, and is now called Samsung Galaxy Beam.
The Galaxy Beam will be launched in Singapore first, starting July, as the world’s only (for now) Android-based projector phone.
The handset will run Android 2.1, featuring a 3.7 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, A-GPS, integrated “beam projector”, and an 8MP autofocus camera with HD video recording. The handset’s price is not known yet.
Expanding the Galaxy series are also the Samsung Galaxy 5 i5500 (already announced in Italy as Samsung Corby Smartphone) and Samsung Galaxy 3 i5800 (pictured below – it’s similar to the Galaxy Apollo i5801).
Both the Samsung Galaxy 3 and Galaxy 5 will be available across Europe and Asia starting next month.
