Samsung Galaxy Beam Hands-On: Project Your Life On Flat Surfaces Everywhere

by Jon Rettinger | July 9, 2012July 9, 2012 12:50 pm PST

Samsung’s new Galaxy Beam is giving all new meaning to vandalism in the 21st Century. If for some reason you’re regularly inspired to put on impromptu presentations or stream YouTube videos across famous landmarks, the Galaxy Beam has you covered. Equipped with a WVGA display, 1GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor, 768MB RAM, 5-megapixel camera, 8GB storage and Android 2.3, the Beam’s pico projector, which radiates 15 lumens, displays an nHD image up to 50 inches across. That’s like, a big piano cat. It may not have the next-gen specs of the One X or Galaxy S III, but it definitely carriers with it a certain coolness factor. Just make sure the stuff you’re projecting onto the wall is SFW, especially if you’re out in a public space.
