Metal-made Samsung Galaxy Beam 2 SM-G3858 gets official in China
The Samsung SM-G3858 that we showed you in March is indeed a smartphone with a built-in projector, as we assumed back then. Samsung is now listing the SM-G3858 on its official Chinese website, and it’s calling it Galaxy Beam 2 - thus making the handset the successor to the Galaxy Beam from 2012.
There’s nothing impressive when it comes to the specs of the Galaxy Beam 2, but it’s worth noting that its case - or at least a part of it - is made out of metal (Samsung China is confirming this). The new handset weighs 165 grams, measures 134.5 x 70 x 11.64 mm, and features: a 4.66-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 5MP rear camera with Flash, microSD card support, and a 2,600 mAh battery. The smartphone runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The built-in mini-projector that’s found at the top of the device supports WVGA resolutions, and Samsung included several apps that are specifically made for it.
Samsung will launch the Galaxy Beam 2 via China Mobile in the near future (for an unknown price). At the moment, there is no word on the international availability of the new handset.
