Samsung has launched its 4-inch Wave 3 smartphone in the UAE. The Samsung Wave 3 features the bada 2.0 operating system, a 4-inch Super AMOLED display and a 1.4 GHz processor.

The phone has a 9.9mm bushed metal case and is designed to enable access to tens of thousands of localised applications through Samsung Apps.

"The Wave 3 benefits from the power of the bada 2.0, as well as a newly expanded suite of Samsung applications and services. We believe the Wave 3 is a smartphone that will truly deliver Samsung's commitment to the bada platform in the mobile industry and we hope customers in UAE will enjoy it and take full advantage of its many innovative features," said Ashraf Fawakherji, general manager of Telecommunications Group at Samsung Gulf Electronics. "We will continue to enhance our bada platform and its eco system for Wave smartphone line-up by developing more innovative features, application and content services."

The Wave 3 also includes ChatON, a cross-platform communication service by Samsung, which is designed to connect mobile users into a single community. ChatON is designed to integrate directly with users' contact information and allows sharing of content in multiple formats, such as images, video, voice, contacts, and calendar to make messaging simpler and faster than ever. ChatON's Group Chat feature also allows users to communicate with multiple contacts at once.

The Wave 3 is powered by an impressive 1.4GHz processor and HSPA 14.4 Mbps connectivity. Embedded HD video capability is designed to allow users to enjoy high resolution video.

Samsung's bada 2.0 now offers a Live Panel home screen, which can be customised with shortcuts to the most used content and applications. On-screen folders now support 3D visual access, multi-touch features and tab-and-drag previews and the device's integrated WiFi Direct feature is designed to directly connect to other WiFi devices.

Samsung's upgraded Social Hub 2.0 service is also designed to integrate messaging, SNS and emails with phonebook and calendar information for instant social networking; and displaying all social interactions in a single portal.
