Samsung has announced plans to launch its first mobile phone with a built in projector, which can beam an image up to 50" wide onto any surface. The Samsung projector phones utilize the Texas Instruments, DLP Pico Chipset to remove the limitations of the traditional mobile phone screen by easily providing "big picture" viewing experiences.
"Working together, Samsung and Texas Instruments, DLP(R) products have made headway in a currently untapped market," said Wonsik Lee, Vice President of R&D Planning Team at Samsung Electronics. "This is an exciting time for the mobile phone industry as we transform the limitations of the mobile phone viewing experience to compelling image sizes that really adds significant value to both business and consumer users."
With the DLP technology enabled Samsung projector phones you can now turn what has traditionally been an individual experience into a shared viewing opportunity for mobile content. By projecting content you can easily broaden the viewable image in a matter of seconds for ample screening.
The Samsung projector phones will be available in February in Korea (model name: W7900) and soon be available in the European market (model name: I7410) as well. The full-featured smartphones include the following:
The handset also inlcudes a 5-megapixel camera and OLED touch-screen.
Pricing and further technical details are still to be announced.
