Just one day before world’s biggest mobile event of the year Mobile World Congress which is set to start on 27th February in Barcelona, Spain one of the most successful smart phone seller Samsung announced brand new smart phone Galaxy Beam. Most notable feature of this stylish new device is builtin projector.
We have seen digital cameras with builtin projector but this is the first smart phone to have a projector which can project HD quality video. This beautiful device comes with Android 2.3 and 1 GHz dual core processor. With 5 mega pixel camera you can shoot 720p HD quality video at 30fps. With the addition of Bluetooth 3.0 you can perform more operations with less power consumption.
Specs are not so special except the projector. Samsung is yet to reveal pricing of the device but looking at the options it has to be priced aggressively.
Samsung not revealed any numbers about how many hours battery lasts for various operations. This is one most important aspect which makes the difference. Projectors need more power compared to other operations of the phone which may drain your battery pretty fast. Also heavy usage of projector may weaken the battery life due to high power consumption.
One other factor may effect this device is the heat it might generate when using projector. I personally saw projectors gets very hot after using it for sometime. Even a LED projector generates so much heat. But the main difference is this is a phone. If you get a call while projecting video, you may not be able to keep the phone at your ear as the location of the projector is where the phone’s speaker sits.
Although above factors are technically sounds right but we can not judge until we experience the device. For now see the full list of technical specs and start preparing yourself to buy this beauty.
