Samsung has released more details on their latest smartphones, the Wave 3, the social-powerhouse Wave M and the smart-start Wave Y.
Although Samsung has smartphones running on other operating systems, the three phones will be powered by Samsung’s own new bada 2.0 platform. The new platform allows for multi-tasking, Wi-Fi Direct, voice recognition and Near Field Communication.
“Smartphones are gaining popularity by the day. The new additions to the Wave portfolio are the first to benefit from the power of our bada 2.0 platform; the full extent of our commitment is clear to see in each device. We’ve produced easy-to-use smartphones that will inspire the market,” said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung’s Mobile Communications business.
The phones will also come equipped with ChatON, which is Samsung’s proprietary mobile communication service that works across all major mobile devices. “A global cross-platform communication service links all your friends and contacts instantly. Micro-communities can be set up through group chat, while a web client allows the sharing of content and conversations between mobile and PC,” Samsung said.
There has been no confirmed release date for Africa.
