Samsung Wave 3 stuffs 4" Super AMOLED display and 1.4GHz processor in an aluminum chassis
Samsung Wave 3 was unveiled today, two days before the Samsung Unpacked event in Berlin, which is a precursor to the company's IFA 2011 Expo appearance.

The third high-end Wave boasts a 4" Super AMOLED display with 480x800 pixels, 1.4GHz single-core chipset, and a five megapixel camera with LED flash plus VGA front facing one. The camera records 720p video, and the Wave 3 supports DivX playback out of the box.

Nothing terribly exciting that might cannibalize sales from the Galaxy S II, but decent internals nonetheless, which are wrapped up entirely in an aluminum body. Despite the metal chassis, the Samsung Wave 3 is pretty light, at 4.3oz (122 grams), and measures just 0.39" (9.9mm) thin. The handset sports 3GB of ROM, plus a microSD slot for further expansion.

It sports a good set of connectivity options, such as 14.4Mbps HSDPA, Bluetooth 3.0, and Wi-Fi Direct and, what's interesting about the A-GPS chip used, is that it can also connect to the Russian satellite system Glonass, so you should be covered wherever you are. The 1500mAh battery is rated for 8.5 hours of talk time, which is pretty good. Naturally, the phone comes with Samsung's new ChatON cross-platform messaging service, as that little orange icon hints from the homescreen.

What do you say, is the Samsung Wave 3 that high-end device you were expecting to lead the new crop of Waves with the bada OS 2.0 update?
