Samsung’s Beam phones with built-in pico projectors never really caught on, but the company has another one in the works. The Samsung SM-G3858 builds on its predecessor while staying in the mid-range.
The phone was certified by Tenaa, which is where the info comes from. The next Beam features a 4.66” LCD with only WVGA resolution and is powered by a quad-core processor at 1.2GHz with 1GB RAM. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
Unfortunately, there’s no info on the projector itself but the bump is visible at the top of the device. You can also see the projector button above the Power key. Previous Beams used nHD projectors (640 x 360).
Additional specs include a 5MP / 1080p camera, 3G connectivity (including TD-SCDMA) and a microSD card slot. The new Galaxy Beam measures 134.5 x 70 x 11.7mm and weighs 165.5g.
The device bears the China Mobile logo on its back, but that doesn’t preclude the possibility of an international version.
