Samsung Wave Y

 Samsung Wave Y Available now
30th August 2011

The Samsung Wave Y is the entry-level device in Samsung's new line-up of Bada 2.0 smartphones. "Y" stands for "Young" in Samsung's new naming strategy, and this handset is designed to be affordable while still quite capable.

There is a 3.2" 320 x 480 pixel display, a basic two megapixel camera on the back, the Wave Y supports GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and 3.5 connectivity. There's a 2GB memory card in the standard sales package which is enough for a decent number of music tracks.

This handset runs the newest version of Bada, and this includes improved support for social networking and multimedia plus a web browser and email client. There are also several thousand applications that are downloadable from the Samsung App store.

Inside is a modest 832 MHz processor, but Bada is pretty efficient so it should be good enough for most applications. The 1200 mAh battery give up to 6.7 hours talktime and 23 days standby time. The whole package measures 110 x 58 x 12mm and weighs 102 grams.

The price is likely to be the crucial issue with this, and Samsung haven't given any guidance here. But similarly specified Bada devices sell for less than €200, so if Samsung price the Wave Y similarly then it could be a fairly decent smartphone for "dumb phone" money. Samsung haven't specified a release date, but we would expect to see the Wave Y by the end of 2011.
