Samsung I8520 rocks Android 2.1, 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED, 8 MP camera, pico projector!

Even though Samsung failed to officially announce the I8520 Android-powered smartphone at its Bada event, we’ve found the device at the company’s MWC portal. It’s a rockin’ awesome device with features that impress! Here’s the specs rundown:

  • Quad-band GSM coupled with tri-band HSPA connectivity
  • 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen
  • 8-megapixel camera (720p / 30fps video recording), plus front-facing VGA camera
  • Android 2.1 with TouchWIZ running on top of it
  • DivX/Xvid-enabled media player
  • A-GPS, WiFi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1, DLNA support
  • Integrated DLP pico projector!!! (there’s also some “Specialized Projector UI” mentioned)
  • FM Radio with RDS, 3.5mm headset jack, stereo speakers with 3D sound effect
  • 2GB (or more) of internal memory + microSD memory card slot
  • 1800 mAh battery
  • Size: 123×59.8×14.9 mm

In a nutshell, the I8520 is the best Android smartphone announced to date. Too bad we’ll have to wait for Q3 to see it released in Europe and Asia, and possibly U.S. soon afterwards.
