The Samsung Wave 723 phone, which sports the Bada operating system, has been unveiled.
This new handset is essentially a more budget oriented version of the original Wave that crashed home with Bada, as it drops the Super AMOLED screen in favour of a 3.2 inch LCD.
Other specs include a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, bluetooth, 3G and wi-fi, along with a microSD slot which can be used to provide 16GB of storage.
The Wave 723 runs the TouchWiz 3.0 interface, and also comes with a built-in social networking hub that allows the owner to manage all their contacts, from email to Facebook, in one central address book.
No price has yet been announced for the handset, but given the spec, we’d expect it to be substantially cheaper than the original Wave. The 723 should be out early in the fourth quarter.
