The thing, which makes these phones compelling, is not the chip; however, the amazing combination of features and price. Samsung has sampled the Galaxy Beam at the Mobile World Conference 2012 in February this year. The trade show was held in Barcelona. The phone is second of its kind; the first Galaxy beam was launched almost two years back. This is a phone with additional features for those looking for a smartphone with a mini-projector. The galaxy Ace 2, on the other side, is designed to target users looking for an affordable handset with sufficient features.

The phone is the successor of Galaxy Beam i8520, which was released two years ago, but to limited markets.

You can also project its content on an improvised surface like a wall or ceiling. The ultra bright projector will allow neat clarity even when you are outdoors. Capture your moments with a 5-megapixel camera and display a full photo slideshow. Beside sharing music videos on YouTube or Hulu, you can use your Galaxy Beam for interactive gaming.
