Samsung's Wave is World's First DivX HD Phone

Samsung Wave and Galaxy SI know all of you are out there drooling over the thought of having DivX-encoded 720p greatness on your new incredi-phone. And if that is the case then look no further than Samsung. Well, at least look no further than Samsung if you want it as soon as possible. The Korean based company has just announced that its Bada-infused Wave handset is going to be the the very first phone with certified support for DivX HD playback.

The Wave isn't the only mobile device trying to reach this desired goal. Samsung is also working on the Galaxy S, an Android-based handset, getting the DivX HD treatment as well. Samsung was the first to incorporate DivX certification in their mobile devices so it isn't surprising to see them being the first ones to incorporate DivX HD. According to CEO of DivX Incorporated Kevin Hell, "Samsung Electronics has demonstrated ongoing innovation in the field of mobile devices, featuring high quality phones that offer users an experience of art."

Hell went on to say, "We are very pleased to extend our collaboration with Samsung to present the first terminal in the world capable of reproducing, in a stunning, HD DivX video on this revolutionary mobile platform." In a statement from Vice President of Business Samsung Mobile Communications Younghee Lee, "We were delighted to be the first manufacturer to offer consumers a DivX certified mobile phone in 2007. Since then we have continued to work together to help develop the experience of mobile video. Now we expand further this spirit of innovation with the first DivX HD mobile terminals, two models based on industry leading platforms for innovative smartphones."

I know people are going to be psyched about this new development between Samsung and DivX. It seems that Samsung has finally found a use for the incredible Super AMOLED displays that both the Wave and the Galaxy S have built in.
