Samsung has previously tried to make a smartphone with an integrated projector. It was a failure but now it seems like Samsung is going for another go and they are going some where with the idea. The phone is called the Samsung Galaxy Beam.

The phone itself looks really sleek and slim. The phone has a small Pico projector on the top with the lenses facing on top and away from the phone.

The phone will be officially revealed at the Mobile World Congress in a couple of days. The really looks like no ordinary smart phone. It has a 1.0GHz dual-core processor. It runs Android Gingerbread but I really hope that there’s going to be an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich in the future. It has a 2000mAh battery. It’s probably that big because of the projector. The Beam has a 4.0-inch Super AMOLED screen. Fitting all that hardware the phone is surprisingly just 12.5mm think.

Right now there’s no word on pricing and availability but it will be displayed at Samsung’s booth at Mobile World Congress. Stay tuned for more upcoming Mobile World Congress news and releases.
