Samsung Galaxy Music unveiled

Samsung has revealed the Galaxy Music, the newest addition to its Android smartphone stable. As its name suggests, this is a handset focussed on music playback, with Samsung claiming that it will boast excellent sound quality and advanced music features.

The original spec sheet suggested the Galaxy Music would sport a 9-lumen WVGA projector at the top, enabling users to project videos and photos onto a wall or screen. This, however, proved to be an error.

What it will have is the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and a 3-inch QVGA LCD screen. The processor is still under wraps, but Samsung revealed that there’ll be 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, plus a microSD card slot that’ll allow you to add up to 32GB of additional space. The camera is of the 3-megapixel, fixed focus variety, with no flash – so it’s clear that photography won’t be the Galaxy Music’s strong point.

On the music front, there’ll be built-in stereo speakers, plus a raft of technologies designed to enhance audio quality: Sound Alive, SRS and Smart Volume. There’s also a dedicated button to take you direct to the music player.

The device will weigh 106.9g, and measure up at 110.1 x 59 x 12.25mm. A 1,300mAh battery is inside, although there’s no indication as to how much talk time, standby time or music playback time that’ll afford the user.

Interestingly, Samsung states the the Galaxy Music will be offered in a dual-sim version in addition to the standard edition; this will be dubbed the Galaxy Music Duos. We wouldn’t be surprised if this option isn’t available in the UK, where dual-sim smartphones are as rare as hen’s teeth.

Pricing and availability are to be confirmed, but the former is likely to be decidedly wallet-friendly. What do you think? Does the Samsung Galaxy Music appeal to your budget, and perhaps your ears? Drop us a line below.
