Who remembers the Samsung Galaxy Beam from back in 2012? It was launched at MWC 2012 and never really made an impact on market. It was aimed at business people who have to make presentations on to go, where projectors can‘t be lugged around. It combines the smartphone experience with the ability to project content from the device.
The biggest reason it didn‘t gain traction was likely because of its older version of Android, bulky design and non-impressive specs. Now, we hear news that the company is working on a successor, although we have no idea what it will be called as of yet.
In leaked images we can clearly see the bulge as we saw in the original, although the overall profile of the device seems a lot smaller. It also features a metal body this time around, which is cartain to make it more appealing.
Some specs have also leaked; it reportedly packs a 4.66-inch WVGA (800×480) display, Android 4.2.2, a quad-core 1.2GHz chipset with 1GB of RAM, and microSD slot with up to 32GB external storage. At this stage we only see a China Mobile variant, so whether the device will see a wider release remains to be seen.
