Samsung Galaxy Beam was one of the most interesting devices unveiled at last month’s Mobile World Congress. We didn’t really care if it was stuck on a dual-core CPU and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Its built-in projector and 6GB RAM blew us away. Based on these specs, it’s hard to tell if Galaxy Beam is a midrange or a high-end phone. I guess we could say it’s stuck in between these two markets. We haven’t heard about it since then until today as Samsung announced its availability in India and possibly other countries in Asia.
A company spokesperson confirmed that Samsung Galaxy Beam will arrive in India this April. While no other announcements were made, there’s a likelihood it will be available in other Asian countries at the same month. People living in the US and Europe have to wait for further announcements since the company remains mum about its availability to both regions. If it doesn’t arrive by June, there’s a chance it may never ship to the US or in Europe so better keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best.
No details regarding its pricing were given but rumor goes that it will cost USD $500 without a contract – much less if it has. To remind you of its specs, Samsung Galaxy Beam has a 4-inch WVGA LCD, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage, and a 2000mAh battery in addition to its 6GB RAM and 15 lumen projector. Measuring only 12.55mm, it’s a thin device that looks youthful and stylish. Hopefully, it gets a global release that will match the hype it created during its announcement.
