Samsung Launches the Wave 3 bada Phone in Global Markets
      11/29/11 04:23 PM

Samsung has launched its flagship 4" Wave 3 smartphone powered by bada in international markets. Initially launching in France, it will be rolled out to Germany, Italy, Russia and other global markets within this year. The Wave 3 features a unique 9.9mm full metal casing, a 4” WVGA Super AMOLED, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and is powered by an impressive 1.4GHz processor and HSPA 14.4 Mbps connectivity. Here is more info on this new Samsung smartphone and new bada version:

The Wave 3 runs on Samsung’s bada 2.0, offering a unique user experience by balancing Touchwiz UX and the bada platform. Personalization capabilities are enhanced together with true multitasking that enables users to activate and render multiple applications at once. The Live Panel home screen can be customized with instant shortcuts to the content and applications that matter most. Management of on-screen folders—supported by unique 3D visual access, multi-touch features and tab-and-drag previews—has never been easier or more intuitive. Meanwhile, the device’s integrated WiFi Direct feature saves users the trouble of tracking down a wireless hotspot by directly connecting to other WiFi devices.

The Wave 3 enables access to tens of thousands of localized applications through Samsung’s dedicated application store, Samsung Apps. With the new bada 2.0-powered smartphone, Samsung Apps has been enhanced with an improved user interface, updated purchasing options and a personalized app recommendation service. A newly enhanced Social Hub 2.0 service helps users stay on top of their busy, active social lives, integrating messaging, SNS and emails with phonebook and calendar information for instant social networking; and displaying all social interactions in a single portal. An integrated Store & Player, Music Hub offers a full music store experience with access to over 12 million tracks and ability to fully personalize users’ own music catalogues.

The Wave 3 also includes ChatON, Samsung’s cross-platform communication service that connects all mobile users into a single community. With easy sign-in that requires no passwords or IDs, ChatON integrates directly with users’ contact information to enable spontaneous chatting in seconds; and enables sharing of content in multiple formats—images, video, voice, contacts, calendar—to make messaging simpler and faster than ever. ChatON’s Group Chat feature also allows users to communicate with multiple contacts at once—anytime, anywhere.

With the launch of the Wave 3, Samsung has introduced a range of exciting new 3D Game and LBS related apps that take full advantage of the updated bada 2.0 OS and new hardware features such as Wi-Fi Direct and voice recognition. Spanning a diverse range of categories including gaming, entertainment, education and utilities, Samsung Apps will celebrate the launch of bada 2.0 by providing exclusive free downloads of Camcard, Skyview and The Adventures of Tintin: The Game for a limited time.
