MWC 2012: Samsung unveils Galaxy Beam with built-in projector Samsung has unveiled their Galaxy Beam at the Mobile World Congress event in Spain, an Android smartphone with a built-in Pico Projector.
The company says the device will go on sale globally in the Q2.

On the spec side, the Beam has a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 4-inch WVGA TFT LCD display, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and a 5MP standard camera. The device will launch with Gingerbread 2.3, but be upgraded to Android 4.0 ICS by the end of the year.

Unlike other past phones with projectors, the Beam will actually be on the thinner side at 0.49 inches with a 15 lumens pico projector. Samsung says the phone can project video for three hours on a gull charge, and there will be stands available for sale. The projections can be up to 50-inches wide, and the resolution is 640x360.

This will be in serious consideration for my next phone. Even if it is a gimmick, it's a pretty damn cool one.
