The Samsung Haptic Beam phone was chosen because of its projector function, which lets users beam videos and pictures stored on the device onto any surface, creating a picture as big as 50 inches. The phone sent to the miners contained a message of encouragement from Chile’s mining minster. It also enabled the trapped men to watch movies and a recording of a friendly soccer match between Chile and Ukraine.

The AMOLED Beam provides an exciting mobile experience by projecting any content to a maximum screen size of 50 inches. The phone also boasts a display 1.5 times brighter than that of previous model, the Haptic Beam. Featuring a lightweight and compact design, the AMOLED Beam offers optimized features such as Microsoft Office and DivX codec support for convenient use, 3.3” WVGA display, 5 megapixel camera, and Terrestrial DMB.
