Samsung Wave 725 Runs Bada 2.0; September Release Likely

July 12, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We had heard about Samsung’s three Bada-powered phones a few months back. Two of these were untitled while the third one was named Samsung Wave 578.

Now one of the mystery devices has been spotted in the Bada 2.0 SDK as the Samsung Wave 725. Specifications-wise the device, we hear, is quite a doll.

It’s rumored to hold  NFC chips and sport an OS unheard of in the US, the Bada 2.0. The Bada’s got a good reputation overseas, so it might be able to leave a good impression on US soil. It will bring with it multitasking, an enhanced UI, and better security.

The Samsung Wave 725 should hold a 3.65-inch HVGA display with 320×480 pixels of resolution. Shutterbugs can expect a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera for video chat. WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 support is a given.

Here is a rendering of what the Samsung Wave 725 might look like (not accurate, but something to go by).

We don’t know anything about the price and Samsung hasn’t given a clue. But going by the specs it should be within the affordable range. The company plans to bring the device out around September.

Since the release is probably around the corner, we are likely to get more details of the Wave before it crashes onto American sands.  So stay with us for the latest updates.
