Samsung has unveiled its latest Android based handset, the i8520 at the ongoing CommunicAsia Expo in Singapore.
The i8520 was first revealed at the Mobile World Congress in February 2010. It hogged the headlines back then owing to one unique feature it sported. The phone has a pico projector at the rear that will enable it to project images on to the nearest wall.
The phone is a full fledged smartphone that is set to run Android 2.1. It has a 3.7-inch super AMOLED display and an 8 megapixel camera as well. Like its contemporaries, the phone will also record and playback HD videos. The HD recording is capped at 30fps. It also has a front VGA front camera that would be used for video calling purposes.
The i8520 will support native DivX and Xvid playback support. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 2.1 and 802.11b/g/n support for Wi-Fi. It will feature a 3.5-mm headphone jack and with 16GB of internal storage and microSD expansion slot, storage should not be problem. It would be a Quad Band phone with support for GSM/EDGE as well as for tri-band UMTS 900/1900/2100.
This device will pack in all the above mentioned features plus a pico projector in a slim body. The phone is slated to go on sale in Singapore soon. Pricing and availability details for other locations are currently unavailable.
