A few years ago, Samsung announced the Galaxy Beam which was basically an Android powered device that came with a built-in projector. It was a pretty novel idea although we expect that there are those out there who have use for it. Well it seems that Samsung has decided that there is apparently enough demand to create a successor which has resulted in the Galaxy Beam 2.
The handset was rumored to be in the works but we guess it is now official, although interestingly enough Samsung has decided to launch the handset in China with no mention as to whether it will be making its way to other parts of the world, like the US or Europe, for example. Also just like its predecessor, the specs aren’t exactly the highest but we suppose the main selling point would be its projector.
The built-in pico projector will support WVGA resolution, background color corrections and will come bundled with a few dedicated applications, although Samsung has not mentioned how bright the projector is which is actually a pretty important detail.
However apart from that, the phone will feature a 4.7-inch WVGA display, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a microSD card slot for memory expansion, and will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The phone is also expected to make its way onto China Mobile although no mention of how much it would cost.
