Samsung announces projector-equipped Galaxy Beam 2


If you’re in the market for a new phone and a new projector, why not kill two birds with one stone phone? At least that’s what Samsung is hoping for with its projector-toting Galaxy Beam 2. Aside from its major draw, the Beam 2 sports a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a low-res 800 x 480 4.66-inch display — we’re guessing Samsung wants you to focus on creating your own display with the projector.

While the original Beam was pretty thick, it offered amazing battery life if you managed to abstain from using its projector. In the case of the Beam 2, you’ll be treated to a 2,600 mAh juice box, so you’ll likely need a backup battery to make it through a screening of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Beam 2 is now available on China Mobile’s 3G network and Samsung has yet to clarify if the device will ever make it to the US, but we hear that people can find foreign devices for sale on the internet if they’re willing to endure a hefty markup.
