Competition in the mid-range segment will continue to increase citing high consumer demand in markets such as India and China.
With an aim to capture a large chunk of market share in the middle segment, Samsung today introduced a smartphone with a built-in projector.
Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Beam2, the Android smartphone has been launched in China.
Samsung Galaxy Beam2 is a legitimate successor to the original Galaxy Beam. While the Galaxy Beam was a big failure globally, Samsung now hopes to see a positive buzz about the second-generation projector phone.
The main highlight of the Galaxy Beam2 remains its DLP projector with WVGA resolution. Samsung says it is a professional level projector, but offers no brightness details. The projector has been improved, but do not expect something miraculous.
On the spec front, the handset comes with low-end specifications. It features a 4.66-inch WVGA display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and a microSD card slot for memory expansion. There's a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with a single LED Flash. The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean powered phone measures 11.7mm thick and weighs 166 grams. Other essential connectivity options include: Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, aGPS and more.
Other than the projector, the Galaxy Beam2 has nothing much of offer. Samsung Galaxy Beam2 will be made available in China for the time being, and it's unknown when we could see the device in India.
