Samsung has announced the launch of three new Wave phones running the bada 2.0 operating system, including the Wave 3.

Sticking to Samsung’s new naming convention, the new phones are the Samsung Wave 3 – flagship device -, the Samsung Wave M – which apparently stands for ‘Magical’ – and the Samsung Wave Y – standing for ‘Young’.

Samsung’s own-brand operating system bada is impressive and the previous flagship the Wave 2 scored well in our lab tests, winning itself a Best Buy award.

The Samsung Wave 3 also looks like an impressive device, featuring a Super AMOLED screen, 1.4GHz processor and HSDPA connectivity.

The Wave M includes a lower resolution screen and slower processor, but still packs in some good features.

The last of the three is the Wave Y. This has shrunk down to a 3.2-inch screen and also only has a 2Mp camera – but is likely to have a much lower price tag than the Wave 3.
