New Delhi: Samsung is trying to get a firm foothold into the projector phone segment with the unveiling of Galaxy Beam, which is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread based smartphone with 1.0 GHz dual-core processor.
The Samsung Galaxy Beam projector smartphone, which allows users to display and share multimedia content anywhere on a large luminous screen, was unveiled at a Samsung event in Bangkok.
According to a spokesperson of the company, "The device will be launched in India in April."
Galaxy Beam lets users spontaneously share photos, videos or other digital media with family or friends by beaming the multimedia contents stored on the device directly onto walls, ceilings or improvised flat surfaces.
The device features a projector-dedicated application which makes it easy to select content and activate projection in a few simple steps. The Galaxy Beam has a 5 megapixel camera.
Despite featuring a full built-in projector, the Galaxy Beam measures just 12.5 mm thick and features an ergonomic design. It has 8 GB of internal memory which can be expanded to 32 GB using SD card and a 2000 mAh battery.
In the past few months lot of Indian handset manufactures have launched projector phones but all of them are feature phones based on Java operating system.
