Projector mobile phones are smartphones which contain Pico projectors within them. These projectors are either standalone, embedded, or peripheral and they work simply by projecting the screen onto a larger surface. You can use this type of phone in presentations or just to see other content with greater magnitude. Projector phones have become a very popular and streamlined choice because the owner of the phone only has to carry one little compact device. As the projector is built-in and already has access to streamed or local content it is very efficient. One of the biggest advantages which comes along with having a projector phone is being able to view videos and pictures on a larger platform. Of course, it is also perfect if you want to share information, pictures, or video with a larger audience. Projector phones are easy to carry as compared to home projectors but there are not many options available to buy in India.
This article will discuss the projector phone in India and some specific phones to choose from.
Samsung Galaxy Beam – Android 2.3 – Projector Mobile Phone
As you can probably imagine the Galaxy Beam runs on Google Android’s 2.3 software. It also has a 5MP back camera and a 1.3MP front camera. the device operates on a 1.0GHz dual-core processor, has 8 GB Internal Memory, and 768 MB RAM. The battery capacity is 2.000 mAh which is overall pretty impressive. The Galaxy Beam has a 15 lumens projector that could evidently even be used outside. Because the phone also incorporates a pico projector the device itself is a little larger than other similar smart phones. It is 12.5MM thick. If size isn’t an issue for you and your primary focus is the projector then this is a good choice, but no matter what projector mobile phone you buy it will probably be just a little bigger in order to fit the pico projector within its casing.
The reason this is the first device listed here is the fact that it is the first mainstream phone to utilize projector technology. This makes the phone something of a trend-setter and one of the first of its kind, which makes it a little special in some ways. There are newer phones, however, which seem to have a little more recent and advanced technology. Still, this appears to be a pretty good device to purchase. The Beam is the first mainstream phone to directly incorporate projector technology, which has become increasingly common on top-of-the-range compact digital cameras.
