Samsung has given the official nod to three new phones packing its proprietary Bada mobile operating system. The Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y, all mooted last week in a comprehensive leak, come loaded with top-end specs. But are they really worth it when similar Android phones are flooding the market?
The Wave 3 is the flagship new Bada phone. With a 5 megapixel camera, 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and a 1.4GHz processor, it looks impressive on paper. But Bada isn’t exactly loaded with access to thousands of third party apps like its Galaxy stablemates, making this top-end effort a bit of a strange release.
The Wave M touts a 3.65-inch screen and 5 megapixel camera, with NFC also included. Bringing up the rear is the Wave Y, with a measly two megapixel snapper and 3.2-inch touchscreen.
Sammy hasn’t said when these handsets will hit shelves. And before you start flexing your credit cards, remember a string of new Galaxy phones are also expected to be announced this week during the IFA trade show in Berlin.
