Samsung has just announced its latest Bada phone – the S8600, more popularly known as the Samsung Wave 3. The third iteration of the Wave family maintains the form factor of its predecessors, combining the good old slim shell and brushed metal look with its favorite Super AMOLED screen. Speaking of which, this is a 4-inch 16M-colour display with WVGA resolution. The glass itself is scratch resistant.
The phone features a power packed CPU, clocking in at 1.4 GHz, which is able to handle all tasks thrown at it with aplomb. The 5-megapixel camera at the back featuring a LED flash makes snapping pictures and recording HD video an easy task, while the VGA camera at the front handles the video calling chores.
The phone runs on a brand new version of Samsung’s proprietary Bada OS. This almost feels like a complete revamp of the platform. Everything from the home screen to contextual menus to the web browser has undergone a facelift.
The Samsung Wave 3 is a great package, and is a deserving upgrade to its previous iterations in every way imaginable.
