Since Samsung have already confirmed early on that they are not going to have their usual and elaborate press conference at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC), one might has the impression that Samsung is going to have a rather quiet outing at MWC. Well, that is not going to be the case at all.

Leading Samsung’s campaign at MWC, the new Samsung Galaxy Beam managed to attract our attention not only because it is one of the first Samsung products to be officially announced at MWC but it is also equipped with a rather unique feature - a built-in 15 lumens projector. Samsung claims that the projector is able to project contents up to 50-inch wide and is bright enough to work in outdoor environments.

In terms of hardware, the new Galaxy Beam is not too shabby. We are looking at 4.0-inch TFT display with 480x800 resolution, a dual-core 1.0 GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage with MicroSD slot that supports up to 32GB card, 2000mAH battery, a camera with a 5-megapixels sensor and a 1.3-megapixels front facing camera.

However, it seems that there is no Ice Cream Sandwich for this device at the time being as it will be delivered with Android 2.3. In addition to that, Samsung have yet to mention anything on Beam’s pricing or release dates as well although judging from the specifications together the Android version that it is running on, Galaxy Beam’s release date shouldn’t be that far ahead.
