Samsung i8520 Beam (Halo) Android 2.1 "Superphone" Packs 3.7-Inch Super AMOLED, 8MP Camera and a Built-In Projector

Labels: , , , , , ,

It looks like Samsung is about to make another handset official and this one's the i8520 "Halo" Android phone that should be making its debut (officially) tomorrow. It's a phone with a built-in pico projector and a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED WVGA touchscreen display. Why couldn't they put this display on their Wave handset is what I'm wondering. Other specs are still quite amazing making this a true "superphone" if you want to. Expect an 8MP AF camera on-board with 720p video recording capbilities, quad-band GSM/EDGE / tri-band UMTS 900 / 1900 / 2100 connectivity, DivX / XviD video playback, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, WiFi / DLNA support, Bluetooth 2.1, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and Android 2.1. This handset will be launched in Europe and Asia in Q3 of this year with a US launch later on (hopefully later in Q3).

The bad part about the built-in projector is that it makes the phone a fat 14.9mm thick. It looks like it'll also be rocking the new TouchWiz 3.0 UI - over top of Android 2.1. Expect Samsung to make it 100% official tomorrow.

Update: It looks like this handset will actually be called the Samsung Beam.
