MWC 2012 – Samsung Galaxy Beam projector phone comes to light

It may not work in the Barcelona sunshine, but Sammy’s new projector phone has found the MWC spotlight

Samsung’s busted out its first phone of this year’s Mobile World Congress – the 4in Samsung Galaxy Beam, an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) smartie packing a 15 lumens projector.

Riding a 1GHz dual-core processor (presumably the same one hiding out in the just-launched Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1) the Galaxy Beam’s also packing a pair of cams on which to snap pictures to share on the nearest flat, white wall. The 5MP rear snapper is accompanied by an LED flash, while a 1.3MP front-facer will look after video chatting and vanity pics.

We’ll be getting our mitts on the Samsung Galaxy Beam in due course as part of our wider Mobile World Congress coverage.
