UPDATED: Samsung I8520 is an Android phone with built-in projector
This article has been updated.

While we were examining Samsung's official Mobile World Congress page we stumbled upon the Samsung I8520. By the looks of it, the I8520 will be an Android 2.1 based phone with some quite impressive specs. First of all, we should mention the large 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen (utilizing the new technology by Samsung). The camera is listed as an 8-megapixel one with autofocus and flash and the phone will also offer HD video playback (not sure yet if it has recording in HD). The star of the show though is the built-in projector by Texas Instruments that will let you build your own home cinema. Over Android, the manufacturer has placed its TouchWiz 3.0 user interface in order to provide an experience similar to its other phones.

The design of the Samsung Halo I8520 is pretty simple so to say, but this doesn't matter too much as we believe this is a phone targeted at the tech buffs out there, and not to users who demand style from their handsets. The I8520 did not get introduced at the event tonight, but we think we'll see more from it pretty soon.
