Samsung Galaxy Beam Android Smartphone Price in Singapore, Features, and Specs

Samsung Galaxy Beam Android Smartphone Price in Singapore, Features, and Specs: The Galaxy Beam from Samsung comes at a time when there are already a handful of smartphones that have set the boundary of being smart a little bit higher. It turns out, Samsung still has something up its sleeve: the new Galaxy Beam comes with a built-in projector. Although it may not be the first phone from Samsung to have such a feature, it certainly put aside the chunkiness of its pioneer (released two years ago and was also called the Galaxy Beam) and it instead procured a rather pleasant looking smartphone. It also runs on a more advanced version of Android operating system and a revved up battery.

The Samsung Galaxy Beam is housed in an all black chassis with a yellow bezel that gives it a clean and rather cool appearance. The smartphone is made of plastic material however, which makes it look slightly low quality. Nonetheless, it has none of the appalling bend on the chassis and is generally solid all throughout.

As mentioned, despite having a projector packed within its system, the Samsung Galaxy Beam is a surprisingly slim and lightweight, and not to mention, easy to handle smartphone. It is also comfortable on the hand thanks to its roundish design. It has an overall dimension of 124 x 64.2 x 12.5 mm, a little thicker than the average, owing mainly to the minimal bump on the back where the projector sits. It also weighs a little more than average at 145.3 grams, although at large this extra heft is harmless; the phone is still well balanced.

The Samsung Galaxy Beam is built to maximize power control by chugging out images from the top of the device. Because of its position and the way that it was molded into the chassis, the projector doesn’t really get in the way of the day-to-day usage of the phone. The headphone jack is apparently shoved off to the top of the phone, presumably to make room for the projector; other smartphones along the Galaxy line don’t have this format.

The Samsung Galaxy Beam is said to be made for mainly two things: as a media device and for sharing documents. It sports a bright and vivid screen at 4 inches in diagonal and has 800 x 480 pixel resolution. The display is AMOLED so contrasts and vividness of images and texts are well and greatly executed.

The Samsung Galaxy Beam also features a slick and highly responsive user interface. The company has added in a built-in annotation application that allows the user to easily scribble on and point at any presentation using the phone. This gives it a slightly more practical usage than just casual video viewing. It also hosts a whole Microsoft Office package that adds greatly to its functionality as a more than casual phone.

Moving on to the projector feature of the Samsung Galaxy Beam, it has in itself a pixel resolution of 480 x 360. This wouldn’t generally satisfy movie geeks but would decently do for light activities, with the device showing 15 lumens of brightness at its best (double that of the output of the original Beam). For a more vivid picture at bright environments, the phone should be relatively close. In a dark room, (where the projector can obviously function at its best), the picture can be stretched to as much as 50 inches or more although at this point, the low resolution of the projector really does show up. However, the projector can undoubtedly seamlessly reproduce whatever there is on the screen of the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy Beam also features both front and back cameras. The latter has a 5 MP resolution with touch to focus capability, face and smile detection, and an integrated LED flash.

As mentioned, one of the pros of the Samsung Galaxy Beam is that it now has an upgraded processor. It runs on a dual core 1 GHz unit. This makes applications and multitasking events on the phone rather speedy and puts it at the level of mid to premium handsets. It also has 768 MB worth of RAM and an 8 GB on-board storage that is expandable to a total of 40 GB using a microSD card. The device runs on Android version 2.3 (Gingerbread).

The Samsung Galaxy Beam also has a 2000 mAh battery, which keeps up very well with the projector and gives the phone up to 3 hours of continuous projector usage. When not on projector mode, the smartphone can outlast most smartphones in its category.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Beam is a fun phone to have with its all-improved and unique features.
