Samsung Galaxy Beam release date set for July?

World's first mass market projector phone just around the corner

Android Projector phone heading our way soon

The Samsung Galaxy Beam, the world’s first projector phone, could be just a couple of months away from launch in the UK. With a Singapore unveiling set for next month, it shouldn’t be long before it beams (*ahem*) its way over here.

The handset runs on Google’s Android 2.1, which sits underneath an impressive-looking 3.7-inch Super-AMOLED screen. It’s got HSDPA 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, as well as A-GPS and an FM radio. The 8-Megapixel autofocus camera has HD video recording capabilities and the projector itself has the potential to display 50-inch wide images, providing nine lumens of brightness.

The Beam will allow you to project photos, documents and videos stored on the phone on to any suitable surface. No more crowding round a tiny screen to show off pics of your latest mischievous antics, then.

We’ll do a full review as soon as we can, but for now, check out the clip below to see the Samsung Galaxy Beam in action.
