Samsung will show off the Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y at IFA 2011 in Berlin next month

The Android operating system may be top dog at Samsung, but the smartphone maker is showing Bada some love by introducing three new Bada 2.0-powered smartphones at IFA 2011 in Berlin next month.

The three new phones are the Wave 3, the Wave M and the Wave Y. All three are powered by Bada 2.0, which is Samsung's own mobile operating system. Bada 2.0 offers features like voice recognition, Wi-Fi Direct and Near Field Communication (NFC) for 
mobile payments

The Samsung Wave 3 offers a 4" Super AMOLED display and a slim body made of anodized aluminum. Wi-Fi Direct, seamless push notifications and improved multitasking are a few listed features for the convenience of the consumer. 

The Samsung Wave M revolves around the social aspect of mobile technology. It is the first Samsung smartphone to come equipped with ChatON, which is Samsung's proprietary mobile communication service that works across most mobile devices and links all of the user's contacts instantly, allows the sharing of content and conversations across mobile platforms and PC, and the creation of "micro-communities" through group chat. The Wave M has a 3.65" HVGA screen made of tempered glass with a metallic body, and features streamlined messaging feeds, enhanced Web browsing, optional NFC and Wi-Fi applications. It's definitely the social member of the three. 

The Wave Y is more of a starter set for new 
smartphone users. It features a metallic body and a 3.2" HVGA screen as well as simple personalization via Lock Screen, Live Panel and Folder management for the new smartphone user who is experiencing the technology for the first time. Music Hub allows the user to manage portable music easily, and Social Hub as well as ChatON will be available for mobile social networking. 

Customers who purchase any one of the three new Samsung smartphones will be able to utilize Samsung Apps, which is an integrated application store specifically for Samsung that offers local to global content. 

"Smartphones are 
gaining popularity by the day," said JK Shin, President of Samsung Mobile Communications. "The new additions to the Wave portfolio are the first to benefit from the power of our Bada 2.0 platform; the full extent of our commitment is clear to see in each device. We've produced easy-to-use smartphones that will inspire the market."

I'm sure if you photoshop the dimensions a little bit, they will look like iPhones.
