Samsung launches trio of Bada 2.0 powered smartphones aimed at mid-market and new users


With all the attention and praise being lauded on Sammy’s Android powered Galaxy S II, let us not forget that the Korean manufacturer has created and marketed its own OS named Bada (which is ocean in Korean) and has created the Wave line of smartphones to make use of it. Now Sammy’s updating the Bada line (which is now in the 2.0 iteration) with three new smartphones – the Wave 3, the Wave M and the Wave Y.

The Wave 3 has some pretty serious hardware packed into it – you’re looking at a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, 1.4GHz processor, and a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus. The Wave M and Wave Y have lower specs (which sounds about right, considering the target market) – while both have a 832MHz processor, the Wave M has a 3.65-inch 320×480 screen, and a 5-megapixel camera, compared to the Wave Y’s smaller 3.2-inch screen and 2-megapixel camera.

Like Android, Bada has its own app store for your needs, and a multitude of social networking apps will keep you connected to the people who really matter. You might be asking why’d you’d pick up Bada equipped phones over regular Android ones that Samsung makes, right? Well, Bada’s being marketed to the entry-level and mid-market segment, and to people who are new to the smartphone world. You can check out complete details of the devices on the link below. Like all global launches, we don’t have the exact details on when these smartphones will be available locally or how much they’ll go for.
