The Galaxy Beam 2 is a single SIM device and is expected to go on sale in China via the China Mobile network. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box and comes with a 4.66-inch (480x800 pixels) WVGA display.
Samsung's latest projector smartphone is powered by 1.2GHz quad-core (unspecified chipset) processor. The official listing does not provide details about the RAM or inbuilt storage, though it does reveal the Galaxy Beam 2 supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 64GB).
The smartphone sports a 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera and also includes a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera. On the connectivity front, the Galaxy Beam 2 includes 3G, Wi-Fi, Micro-USB, AGPS, GLONASS and Bluetooth options. The Galaxy Beam 2 packs a 2600mAh battery. It measures 134.5x70x11.64mm and weighs 165 grams.
