Samsung is in the midst of displaying a wide collection of new smartphones at CommunicAsia 2010 this week, and now the news coming out of the ICT trade show is that the Samsung Galaxy Beam (which boasts a built-in DLP pico projector) will launch very, very soon.

Also known by the codename GT-I5820, the Android 2.1-based Galaxy Beam supports 3G and quad-band GSM/EDGE. Other standard features include Wi-Fi, an FM radio and assisted-GPS.

But the standout features (besides the projector function) are the 3.7-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, Bluetooth 3.0, and the stellar 8-megapixel AF camera with LED flash and HD video recording capability. A smartphone shouldn't come with a built-in camera any less grand than this these days.

According to The Unwired blog, the Galaxy Beam will touch down in Singapore first as soon as next month. No word on a specific date in July, nor a price nor anything about a North American release date yet.
