Samsung AMOLED Beam upgrades projector phones

AMOLED Beam precedes Samsung's Android model

Samsung on Wednesday morning shipped its second projector phone, the AMOLED Beam. Not to be confused with the Android-based Beam i8520, the phone uses Samsung's own feature phone OS and chiefly upgrades visuals both on and off the phone. Its namesake 3.3-inch, 800x480 display is more color accurate than the old Haptic Beam's LCD, and its pico projector is now about 1.5 times brighter and better suited to real environments.

The projector unit can cast an image as large as 50 inches, Samsung added.

The new Beam touts a five-megapixel camera and, in Korea, T-DMB for digital TV tuning. Software also gets a boost as the phone can play DivX videos and open Office files. KT is the first to carry the AMOLED Beam as the W9600. Whether or not it will reach other countries isn't evident, but the Beam i8520 is due to reach many countries this summer.
