Singapore’s Samsung Galaxy Beam Is a Pico Projecting Galaxy S
Samsung’s Galaxy S variant for the Singapore market–called the Galaxy Beam–is essentially a smaller-screened version of the Android tablet-shaped smartphone that packs in a pico projector for a quick and easy way to share your photos and content. The first smartphone to pack in a pico projector, albeit via a custom attachment, was the LG eXpo, which runs on Windows Mobile 6.5.
While some specs of the Galaxy Beam are better than its Galaxy S bigger brother, others are not. For instance, the Beam packs in a more conservative 720 MHz processor–presumably an ARM-based solution made by Samsung–rather than the 1 GHz Hummingbird CPU on the Galaxy S, but the device also has an LED flash on its higher resolution 8-megapixel camera. Both the Beam and the Galaxy S will share the Super AMOLED touchscreen technology, which performs better under direct sunlight than regular AMOLED, but the Galaxy Beam’s display is a smaller 3.7-inch WVGA screen compared to the 4-inch on the Galaxy S of same resolution.
Here are the complete specs for the Galaxy Beam:
-3.7″ WVGA (480 x 800) Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen
-8 Megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p video recording at 30fps
-720 MHz processor
