When Samsung officially announced Bada 2.0 last week, it promised that three new Wave handsets would follow later this year.

Well, their time frame may have been a tad conservative as the Samsung Wave 3, Samsung Wave M and Samsung Wave Y have all now hit officialdom.

Starting with the Wave 3, because it's the daddy of the bunch, and we're looking at a Bada handset, but with Android-like specs; it seems that Bada is ready to come out of the corner.

It packs a 1.4GHz processor, HSDPA 14.4 connectivity, a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, 3GB of onboard storage (expandable with microSD), Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, an accelerometer, a digital compass, a proximity sensor and a 5-megapixel camera with AF and an LED flash. There's also a VGA camera for video calling.

The Samsung Wave M, which by Sammy's new naming rights should be a "Magical" experience, is the next step down boasting an 832MHz processor, HSDPA 7.2 connectivity, a 3.65-inch 320x480 (HVGA) TFT LCD, a 5-megapixel camera on the back and a VGA one on the front.

The Wave Y, for the youth, does away with the 5-megapixel snapper in favour of a 2-megapixel one, and has no front-facing camera option.

All three handsets, of course, run on Bada 2.0 with Samsung TouchWiz over the top, and also have access to the new iMessage-rivalling ChatON messaging service. The M and the Y have optional NFC connectivity as well.

No word on pricing or availability yet, but Samsung will be showing off the handsets over in Berlin at IFA - so keep your eyes peeled for some Pocket-lint hands-on action.
