Samsung Wave M is now official, runs bada 2.0 and wants to socialize
The Samsung Wave M is one of the three new smartphones that the manufacturer unveiled today and sits nicely in between the newly introduced flagship of the bada 2.0 family – the Wave 3, and the entry-level Wave Y handset. All three devices are being made official only days before the start of IFA 2011 in Berlin where all three of them are expected to be shown off in person.
We are looking at a smartphone built mostly with social networking in mind, which is why the Samsung Wave M comes equipped with Samsung's very own messaging system, ChatON. Social Hub also comes out of the box so that you can easily keep track of what mischief your buddies are up to. However, the most important software aspect of the device is that it comes with Samsung's freshly-baked bada 2.0 platform, which offers goodies such as multitasking, Wi-Fi Direct, voice recognition and NFC support.
In terms of hardware, the Samsung Wave M packs a 3.65-inch TFT LCD display boasting a resolution of 320 by 480 pixels and a modest 832MHz processor. There is a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera on its back backed up by a LED flash and the front-facing shooter can be used for video chats, as well as for taking silly self-portraits. Its 7.2Mbps HSPA radio is what will get you on the 3G airwaves of your carrier of choice and a 1,350mAh battery will pack the juice that the smartphone needs to make it through the day.
Pricing and availability of the Samsung Wave M are yet to be announced, but it wouldn't be surprising if the company gives out these details during the Unpacked event tonight.
