Samsung shuffles out Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y Bada OS smartphones

First announced back in August 2011, the flagship bada handset presents itself to the world in a  9.9-mm thick anodized aluminum body, while inside beats a 1.4GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage with microSD expansion.

Packing a generous 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, there’s a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash on the back, front facing VGA camera for video chats, and support for Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11n Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi Direct support, GPS, and HSDPA 14.4 / HSUPA 5.76 radios.

Also onboard is Samsung’s Touchwiz UX and ChatOn cross-platform communication service – something we tried and found a little wanting.

The Samsung Wave 3 is now available for sale in France, with Germany, Italy, Russia and other markets set to follow. There’s no pricing or availability details for Brits yet.
