Samsung’s third attempt at a Bada-powered flagship smartphone, the (aptly named, of course) Wave 3, was announced in August. Since then though, we’ve heard very few things about it. One of them was that it was apparently going to become available in October. That hasn’t happened yet, but we’re still a couple of weeks or so away from the end of this month, so keep your fingers crossed.
One thing that does show us that the launch is at least nearing is the fact that the Wave 3 has now gone up for pre-order in the UK. Online retailer King Of Gadgets is offering the Samsung Wave 3 for £399.99, which is rather steep for a Bada phone. Still, it’s the higest-end Bada phone to date, so maybe it will be worth that amount of cash. You be the judge.
The Wave 3 has a 4-inch 480×800 Super AMOLED touchscreen, a 1.4 GHz single-core processor, a 5 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a secondary front-facing camera, 3 GB of built-in storage, microSD card support, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA, 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,500 mAh battery. It runs Bada 2.0.
Unfortunately, King Of Gadgets doesn’t list a shipping date for the pre-ordered Wave 3 units, so there’s no telling when you’ll be able to play with yours if you do decide to go ahead with the purchase. However, you’ll still be among the first people in the UK to receive the smartphone, so that may be a good enough reason to pre-order. If you’re interested, head over to King Of Gadgets.
