Samsung intros Wave 723 with Bada

Samsung grew its fledgling Bada-based phone line today by launching the Wave 723. Although a step below the original Wave with a 3.2-inch LCD instead of the more exotic Super AMOLED, it stands out through a unique leather flip cover built into the body itself to protect the phone's screen. Many other features have ported over, including the still-rare 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 as well as the five-megapixel camera with flash.

The phone is one of the first to use Bada 1.1 out of the box and can run apps from the first Wave, or other Bada phones, at its native resolution without significant extra work. Samsung's app store has also been streamlined.

Germany will be the first to get the Wave 723 when it ships in September. Other parts of the world will get the full-touch phone afterwards. Samsung hasn't given out a schedule for those other areas, although North America has previously received the Wave through Rogers in Canada.
