Samsung announces Wave 3, Wave M, and Wave Y bada 2.0 trio
The long wait of all the fans of Samsung's bada OS for a new device is finally over as today, Samsung announced a trio of bada 2.0 phones, with Wave 3 being the new flagship for the company's proprietary OS. The devices also employ Samsung's new naming strategy, which we told you about recently.
Like we mentioned above, the Wave 3 is the most feature packed phone of the bunch. It runs on a 1.4GHz CPU, and packs a 4" Super AMOLED screen with WVGA resolution, showing you Samsung's latest TouchWiz UI. There is a zippy HSDPA network connectivity on board, along with quad-band GPRS/EDGE. A 5MP auto focus camera with LED flash is in charge of taking photos and shooting HD videos (720p@30fps), while a VGA unit at the front will help you with video calls.
There is 3GB of built in memory in the Wave 3, and a microSD memory card slot (up to 32GB). Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, and USB 2.0 complete the connectivity package. There is accelerometer, proximity, and light sensors on board too, along with a compass. All this functionality will be powered by a 1500 mAh battery, and packed in a brushed aluminum body, weighing 122 grams.
And since we got the chance to get our hands on a Samsung S8600 Wave 3 unit (in fact we got all three of the new announcements), here come a few live photos for you to enjoy. Expect our exclusive preview of the latest bada flagship to appear on our homepage later today.
The Samsung Wave M is the mid-range device from the trio, with a knack for social networking. It is powered by an 832 MHz CPU, and has a 3.65" TFT LCD screen with HVGA resolution. Like the Wave 3, the Wave M offers a 5MP AF camera on its back. Its video recording however has been limited to HVGA@30fps. A VGA front camera is present as well.
There is 150MB of built-in memory in the Wave M, and support for microSD cards (up to 32GB). A full connectivity package can be found on the device as well, along with an accelerometer and proximity sensor. The Wave M has a 1350 mAh battery under its metallic body. The device weighs 121 grams.
And here go the live shots of the Samsung Wave M S7250.
The Samsung Wave Y, as its name suggests, is the entry level phone in this bada OS trio. It features the same CPU as its bigger brother, the Wave M, but has a smaller 3.2" TFT LCD screen with HVGA resolution.
The camera of the Wave Y is a 2MP fixed focus unit, capable of recording HVGA videos @30fps. Again, you will find 150 MB of built-in memory, along with microSD card support (up to 32GB). Quite logically, there is a full connectivity suite on board as well. The Wave Y is powered by a 1200 mAh battery. Its metallic body weighs a meager 102.4 grams.
The live shots of the last bada smartphone to be announced today follow.
All three devices will have NFC capability as an option, along with Samsung's proprietary ChatON, Media Hub, and Kies services. The bada 2.0 trio will be featured at the IFC, which begins this week in Berlin. Hopefully, we will find out about their pricing and availability there.
