Samsung have finally started rolling out their new Wave 3 handset, a high end smartphone powered by the latest version of their own homespun operating system, the bada mobile operating OS.
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.
