What happens when a 4-inch Android smartphone and a pico projector become one? The result is the new Samsung Galaxy Beam, not to be confused with the earlier one that was launched in 2010.
With its built-in projector, the Galaxy Beam allows users to share content with others by projecting images onto a wall or any possible surface. Samsung claims that the 15 lumens projector of the Galaxy Beam can deliver crisp clarity even outdoors. The Galaxy Beam can throw a maximum display size of 50 inches wide. The phone comes with a 2,000mAh battery module.
Apart from having a built-in projector, the Galaxy Beam has the typical features of a smartphone. The device is powered by a 1GHz dual-core CPU, 8GB storage which can be expanded via microSD, and a 5-megapixel camera. Interestingly, the Galaxy Beam still runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
The Samsung Galaxy Beam is also set to appear at MWC 2012 in Barcelona.
