The Galaxy Beam features a dual core 1 GHz Processor coupled with a whopping 6 GB RAM which will ensure performance in applications, multitasking and flawless projector performance. It features a 4 inch capacitive touchscreen with a 480 x 800 pixel native resolution.

The phone features HSPA 3G connectivity for faster data transfers. The smartphone is powered with the slightly outdated Gingerbread 2.3.4 operating system that is expected to be upgraded to Android Ice Cream Sandwich soon. The Beam also features a 5 megapixel rear camera capable of video recording in HD 720p resolution besides the 1.3 megapixel camera for video conferencing and video calling.

Along with that the Galaxy beam also features 8 GB of onboard memory which can be expanded to up to 32 GB with the additional Micro SD card slot provided on the device.
