Samsung just made a big announcement ahead of IFA 2011, the trade show starting this week in Berlin and including some nifty launches. The Asian company just unveiled 3 new Bada OS phones, all of them running version 2.0 of the OS. I’m talking here about the Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y, staying true to the new naming pattern promoted by the company.


Wave 3 (pictured above) is the most interesting device, since it comes with some appealing features, that are detailed below. This is a model with a brushed aluminum body, the TouchWiz UI on board, a weight of 122 grams and the following specs:

  • CPU: 1.4GHz
  • Display: 4 inch, Super AMOLED, WVGA resolution
  • Connectivity: HSDPA, WiFi, quad band GPRS/EDGE, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0
  • Camera: 5MP, autofocus, LED flash, HD video capture at 30 fps, VGA front cam
  • Memory: 3GB built in, microSD card slot
  • Battery: 1500 mAh

Samsung Wave M (above) is next on the list, with a bundle of social networking feats, a metallic body and a weight of 121 grams. Here’s the specs list of the handset:

  • CPU: 832 MHz
  • Display: 3.65 inch TFT LCD, HVGA resolution
  • Camera: 5MP, autofocus, HVGA video recording at 30 fps, VGA front camera

  • Battery: 1350 mAh

And finally, here comes the Samsung Wave Y (above), a handset for youngsters that fits right into the entry level segment. This model has the same CPU as the Wave M and a smaller display, but more about that in the following list:

  • Display: 3.2 inch TFT LCD, HVGA resolution
  • Camera: 2MP fixed focus, HVGA recording at 30 fps
  • Memory: 150MB internal, microSD card slot
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G
