Samsung Wave 3, Wave M, and Wave Y Bada 2.0 phones announced…

Samsung has announced three new phones running its proprietary Bada 2.0 operating system: the Wave 3, Wave M, and Wave Y. These phones add to the seven Wave phones that are already a part of its Bada portfolio.

The Wave 3 is the most powerful of the bunch, with a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, 1.4GHz processor, and a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus. The “full metal” body is made of anodized aluminum, weighing 122 grams. The Wave 3 was previously leaked by Samsung’s very own app earlier this week along with the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab 7.7 — we’re awaiting word on those latter two at IFA this week.

The Wave M will feature an 832MHz processor, a 3.65-inch screen and a 5MP camera.

the Wave Y boasts of similar specs but has a smaller 3.2-inch screen  and a 2-megapixel shooter.The Wave M and Wave Y are the mid-tier and entry-level entrants, respectively. They have lower-end specs to match those tiers.

All three phones will have Samsung’s recently announced ChatON service installed and run its Bada 2.0 OS, giving them access to Samsung Apps, the company’s app-delivery platform that current has about 13,000 applications.

Samsung is also hoping to bring in app developers with a full SDK.

Although NFC, voice recognition, and direct WiFi sharing are all new in Bada 2.0, remember that Samsung is still targeting the OS at new smartphone users. If that sort of thing interests you, catch a promo video for Bada after the break.
