Samsung has officially unveiled its new Galaxy Beam in Taiwan today. The new smartphone that borrows the name from its predecessor from two years ago will be in stores in Taiwan in mid-July – so in about a couple of weeks or so tops.
The price that will be asked for this unique device is NT$ 16,900. That’s about US$567, or €450 going by today’s exchange rates.
The new Samsung Galaxy Beam was first announced back in February as the world’s second mainstream smartphone to have a projector built-in, after Samsung’s earlier attempt bearing the same name. The new model comes with a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a dual-core 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP rear camera with flash, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, 768 MB of RAM, 8 GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot, all the usual connectivity options, and a 2,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
