Samsung Galaxy Beam to be world’s first Android projector phone when it hits the stores this July

June 15, 2010, By Thomas Antony

We have seen a few pico-projector phones to date, but none of them with Android. Now Samsung is about to change that with their new Samsung Galaxy Beam projector smartphone. The Galaxy Beam ( codename: Halo ), comes with an integrated DLP pico projector and will come loaded with Google’s Android 2.1 Eclair operating system. When it goes on sale in Singapore this coming July, it will become the first Android phone with an integrated projector.

The Galaxy Beam packs quad-band GSM/EDGE, 7.2 Mbps HSPA 900/1900/2100 MHz, Bluetooth 3.0 and 802.11n WiFi radios. The camera is an 8 megapixel with autofocus and flash, and capable of HD video recording . There is also a front-facing VGA camera for video conferencing. The display is a 3.7 inch Super AMOLED WVGA touchscreen. Like the other handsets in Samsung’s Galaxy series, the Galaxy Beam supports decoding and playback of DivX and Xvid video files directly.

The Galaxy Beam also has an FM Radio, A-GPS support and weighs 155gm with the 1800 mAh battery. It is supposed to give a talktime of 7 hours and standby time of 530 hours. A European launch and broader availabilty across Asia should be coming soon afterwards. No pricetag has been announced for the phone.
