Samsung Galaxy Beam announced, smartphone meets projector
So, imagine having a 50-inch display that fits inside your pocket. Sounds like an idea belonging to the realm of sci-fi movies, right? Well, the new Samsung Galaxy Beam Android smartphone makes that possible with its built-in projector. With a brightness output of 15 lumens (as compared to the 6 lumens delivered by its predecessor), it should be able to display high definition images up to 50 inches wide.

However, just because it is basically a smartphone and a projector fused together, doesn’t mean that the Samsung Galaxy Beam is unbearably bulky. It is 12.5 millimeters thick, which is still within the acceptable range for a modern smartphone. If you are curious about its hardware specs, the Galaxy Beam has a 4.0-inch WVGA display and a 1.0GHz dual-core processor. The 5-megapixel auto-focus camera on its back can capture 720p video at 30 frames per second, and the 1.3-megapixel camera is ideal for video chats. There are 8 gigs of on-board storage expandable via microSD cards, and a 2000 mAh battery ensures that you don’t run out of juice while projecting last night’s photos on the wall of your living room.

The Samsung Galaxy Beam will be shown off at MWC 2012 in Barcelona, so if you would like to learn more about it, stay tuned to our coverage.
