Back in January, Samsung unveiled a mobile phone that could display video on a 50-inch screen. The feat was made possible through a connection to a wireless phone accessory utilizing a DLP pico chip from Texas Instruments.

Now, Samsung has improved its form factor by embedding the Texas Instruments chipset directly into the phone, offering consumers a complete mobile office and entertainment solution.

“These phones instantly turn any situation into a media viewing opportunity,” says Frank J. Moizio, manager of DLP Emerging Markets business. “While tiny by nature and easily able to fit into a mobile device, the DLP Pico chipset produces stellar image quality and gives the freedom to project content onto practically any surface.”

The Samsung projector phone will be available this month in Korea (model W7900) and in Europe (model 17410) shortly thereafter. The phones will also feature a 5.0 megapixel camera, high-resolution OLED touchscreen, and built-in speakers.
