While Samsung is actively churning out Android devices, that doesn’t mean they are abandoning its home grown bada platform. Recently Samsung’s Wave 3 & Wave Y were spotted on IMCC, an online retailer with a price tag of RM999 and RM419 respectively. Both models run on bada 2.0 OS.
At first glance, the Wave 3 & Wave Y looks like a “bada”-ised version of the Galaxy W and Galaxy Y. Apart from its similar price tag, the Wave models are actually a notch higher than the Galaxy equivalent in terms of hardware.
The Samsung Wave 3 comes with a familiar 1.4GHz single core processor and 4GB of internal storage that’s expandable through micro SD. On the front, you get a larger 4.0″ Super AMOLED display that pushes 800×480 pixels resolution. In terms of imaging, it comes with a 5MP camera that does 720p HD videos and a front facing VGA camera. The Wave 3 is 9.9mm thin and comes with uni-body brushed aluminium design for a more upmarket feel. You can check out more angles of the device in the video below.
The Samsung Wave Y is a lower entry version into Bada OS and it runs on 832MHz processor and 150MB of internal storage which is expandable also with micro SD. In terms of display, the Wave Y comes with a 3.2″ TFT which does a decent 480×320 resolution. Over at the back, there’s a 2.0MP camera
