Samsung has announced a trio of Bada-powered smartphones
which will target the lower end of the market rather then the mid- to high-end
market dominated by iOS and Android.
Last week it was revealed that Samsung would be announcing
three new products at IFA, and one of those was the Wave 3. It seems as if
Samsung couldn’t wait to tell us about the new phone and has so officially
launched the Wave 3 as well as the Wave M and Wave Y, all of which will run Bada
The latter two fit into the new naming convention for
smartphones from Samsung it announced with the launch of the Galaxy W, Y, Y Pro and M Pro.
First up is the Wave 3 (above) which features a 4in VGA Super AMOLED
screen and is powered by a powerful 1.4GHz processor. It will have 3GB of
internal storage (expandable to 32GB via a microSD card slot) and a five
megapixel camera with aufo-focus.
Samsung has also announced an instant messaging tool called
ChatON and it will be installed first on the Wave M (above) which features a
not-so-powerful 832MHz processor. It will have a 3.65in WVGA screen and only
150MB of internal storage, which sounds rather measly.
Finally we get the Wave Y which features a 3.2in HVGA
screen, the same 832MHz processor and a puny two megapixel camera. Again ChatON
will be pre-installed, as will Samsung’s Social Hub.
There is no word on pricing or when the phones will arrive
yet but we’ll surely get some more concrete details and hands-on time with
these phones at IFA later this week.
