Samsung announces the Galaxy Beam 2, resurrecting the built in pico projector

Samsung Galaxy Beam 2

The pico projector has returned! When Samsung released the original Galaxy Beam, I thought that the built-in pico projector was really cool. However, the device wasn’t really talked about much afterwards. I thought Samsung had given up on the technology, but with the release of the Galaxy Beam 2 today, we’re seeing another attempt!

The Galaxy Beam 2 retains the low-end status of its predecessor, sporting a 4.66-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz quad core processor and a 2600mAh battery. But to offset that, though, you get a freakin’ built-in projector. And in classic Samsung fashion, there are software features that take advantage of the projector, including a clever flashlight.

Sadly, the Galaxy Beam 2 is only being released in China at this time, and it’s doubtful that it’ll expand to many other countries since not many people will buy a device with a WVGA display. Still, it’s awesome that Samsung hasn’t given up on its pico projector tech. Despite releasing so many devices into the market, Samsung still makes some unique products.

Would you ever buy a Galaxy Beam 2? Leave a comment!

    Yes, I was ready to buy one as soon as I saw your headline. Back to waiting, or a trip to China

    What I would have wished for is that Samsung produced a stand-alone, peripheral device that connected either through the charging port or wirelessly (wifi or bluetooth) that could be used by any modern Samsung smartphone. That would seem like it would reach a much wider audience and interest-group than having a all-in-one device on a dedicated phone. I really think they short-changed themselves on this one.

    Man, if they outfitted the Galaxy S5 with one of these, it would be incredibly appealing.
