Speed, performance and beauty
The Samsung Wave boasts a superb 1GHz processor which offers the best graphic performance available today. Its speed means the touch screen user interface is incredibly responsive, intuitive and more importantly, means the 3D and memory-intensive graphic and video performance is unsurpassed.
The Samsung Wave is one of the most attractive devices to launch this year; its seamless, streamlined body has no parting or harsh lines and features a beautiful curved, tempered glass display which perfectly complements and enhances the vividness of the Super AMOLED display. And, with anti-smudge technology, those greasy thumb prints are a thing of the past. Samsung Wave incorporates Bluetooth® 3.0 and WiFi 802.11n standard.
Multi-codec support for DivX and Xvid, and support for 5.1 surround-sound-delivery transforms the device into a personal entertainment system, and 720p HD video decoding and recording capabilities make the Samsung Wave an outstanding device for capturing, sharing and viewing video.
Samsung Apps: Unlimited Expandability

Featuring a wealth of games, navigation, social networking, e-book, health and lifestyle applications, Samsung Apps gives users instant access to a huge choice of mobile experiences.
