Those who have been keeping a tab over Samsung would surely guess it right that the manufacturer indeed has lots on the plate to serve across. After removing the sheath of its new Transform Ultra, the company has now announced the latest Samsung Wave III smartphone based on Bada 2.0 operating system. The highest end of the three new devices carrying that name, Wave III pops up as the newest spin on the metallically cased Wave range and packs in a whole new slew of advanced features.
Designed aesthetically, the handset describes itself as the masterpiece of signature looks of Samsung and swears up and down to refurbish your interaction with the world of multimedia and entertainment.
Having upped Samsung Wave’s design legacy to greater heights, the incredibly stylish Wave III is the most recent addition the high-end smartphones – aimed at delivering the best of best.

By taking advantage of the perfect platform, users can seamlessly experience the endless possibilities of Samsung Apps, Music Hub, Social Hub, dynamic folder management, multi-tasking and TouchWiz UX.
What’s been refreshed
Apart from the refinements of the brushed aluminum surface and subtle curvilinear edging, the phone now features a slimmer enclosure with a new metal style. The touchscreen model has also been leveraged through the foundation of Bada 2.0 OS and 1.2GHz dual-core processor. In terms of social connectivity, the maker worked on the model even further and included the new [email protected] service. Some other highlighted features that make a wave subsume Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP, GPS navigation, Wi-Fi, high speed 3G connectivity, integrated Facebook, Twitter and expandable memory up to 32GB.
Integrated with a multitude of advanced attributes, the latest smartphone from Wave family catches attention quickly with Samsung’s own global communication service ‘[email protected]’. Right from sharing contents and favorite tunes with others to being a part of group chats, the stated feature enables all. The phone also benefits from its powerful 1.4GHz process that lets one enjoy multiple apps with no lack. For those inclined towards preserving good times, its high quality 5 megapixel camera and ability to record videos in 720p can be handy.

The sleek framework topples as another add-on – if you enjoy carrying a super sleek multimedia hub in your skinny jeans or bags.
What’s not so good
Although Wave III leaves no stones unturned in leaving people impressed, the device somewhere shares a dark side as well. A bit to dismay, the device looks quite similar to Android – which may force the snappers to think ‘why should we switch?’ We feel Samsung could have worked a bit more on that front and tried to distinguish the interface and the way it shares similarity with Android. Also, the phone doesn’t come with loads of applications – yet another turn off for people who were thinking Wave III would compete with iOS who has hundreds of thousands of applications available to download.
Like the rest of Samsung’s handsets, the hardware is really terrific on the Wave, glossy screen complimenting a brushed aluminum back.
Price and availability
The new Samsung Wave III is anticipated to cost around $435.56, however, the availability details are yet to be announced.
The new Samsung Waves III with Bada 2.0, a significant upgrade to the Wave II, emerges to be a great pick for users for its incredibly advanced features and blazing-fast processors. However, the smartphone somewhere disappoints with lack of applications. If we overlook its similarity with Android, the device can indeed be considered as an amazing mobile phone for various purposes – be it staying knitted with closed ones, capturing perfect moments, watching content or indulging in media features.
