February 14, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung has brought forth to enthusiasts its new Bada smartphone, christened the Wave (a.k.a. S8500), with features that are sure to lure.  Announced a few hours ago, the Samsung Bada is being dubbed as the first handset that features Bluetooth 3.0, and comes with a 3.3-inch Super AMOLED display with 800×480 resolution.  Significant about the handset is that Samsung has given multitouch the go by and instead opted for a brighter and less reflective display that runs OnCell technology. Get set for the new Wave this April.

The most prominent addition that the company has made in the new Wave is the mDNle (mobile Digital Natural Image engine) technology, which we had earlier seen gracing its LCD and LED television sets. The user interface has been offered in an astoundingly customizable format with the deployment of TouchWiz 3.0. Running a high speed CPU, the Samsung Wave would aid multi-tasking.

The Wave would house under its hood the unique Social Hub feature which Samsung has built to integrate all major portal’s email, IM and SNS services. Here’s where the TouchWiz 3.0 user interface we spoke about earlier also comes into play. Providing for smooth messaging, managing contacts and viewing calendar events, the Social Hub comes alive thanks to the push technology that has been incorporated into the Wave.

The 1GHz processor in the Wave offers users the best graphic performance, while the multi-codec support for DivX Xvid, MP4 and WMV, and support for virtual 5.1 surround sound delivery ensures extreme personal entertainment. Samsung Wave has also been spruced up with Bluetooth® 3.0 and WiFi 802.11n standard. Other features include a 5 megapixel camera, 2GB or 8GB internal memory, GPS, accelerometer, and microSD expansion slot. We are now waiting for the pricing to be made public. This April, when it arrives, the Samsung Wave will indeed turn a few heads. That is for sure.
