At Mobile World Congress 2012 today Samsung unveiled the GALAXY Beam, an Android phone with a built in projector. Yes, you read that right – a projector. So if you’re tired of your phone’s display and really want to turn heads, the GALAXY Beam can produce a 50″ wide projection if you’re ever feeling bored.
“GALAXY Beam provides mobile freedom, enabling a unique shared experience around digital content for everyone—anywhere and instantly—from a smartphone as slim and portable as any on the market,” said JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “GALAXY Beam is a device borne out of Samsung’s insight and innovation, demonstrating Samsung’s commitment to providing extraordinary experiences for consumers with products that let them express and fulfill themselves.”
Despite featuring a full built-in projector, the GALAXY Beam measures 12.5mm thick, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread powered by an 1.0GHz dual-core processor. What’s even more surprising is the phone supposedly has 8GB of internal memory, and a powerful 2000 mAh battery to keep the phone ticking for a long time. Samsung are touting that the phone can be used in various situations, such as in business presentations or even watching videos in the great outdoors.
