Samsung’s new music feature’s name was revealed on the company’s official list of device that were going to be upgraded to Jelly Bean, but today actually brings a whole lot more news on the smartphone that is known as Samsung Galaxy Music. While this isn’t coming straight out of the mouths of Samsung, the first news came from Telecom-Presse, an Austrian website. The website revealed the phone with some very humble specifications and a very distinctive front face.
The device or “Samsung Galaxy Music,” seems to be an entry level smartphone at this point, but its focused is on music, as implied by the naming convention of the handset. It’s going to be featuring two different stereo speakers, a tiny 3 inch QVGA 240 x 320 display and will be powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The handset will also be powered by a 850MHz single core processor, which is really saddening, so you won’t have a whole lot of power to mess around with on this guy, but it is something you would expect for it to have decent pricing on the smartphone market. What’s interesting is that this phone will have a dual-SIM version of the handset, and will be be branded as the Galaxy Music Duos. I’m going to ahead and take this as Samsung’s way of looking to target the developing world with this handset.
The Galaxy Music has been reported that the handset will be making its debut at an even in Frankfurt on October 11th. Invites for this event have just recently started trickling to the German press, but nothing other than that. Honestly, it’s not a bad device for it being an entry level phone. I do think that the single core processor is going to kill the selling point though, I can only imagine as to how slow that thing will be moving. Of course, this probably doesn’t matter to someone who’s just getting into the smartphone market, as they haven’t had a taste of the glorious dual core processor phones. At least this isn’t another handset where Samsung is trying to undercut their most recent flagship device, the Galaxy S III (i.e. Galaxy Note II coming out and undercutting the Galaxy S III).
Does this particular handset interest anyone at all? It looks interesting, and will obviously be a good music player with its devotion and focus on the music side of things. It may even remove the reason for people to purchase various MP3 players, but we don’t know that for sure as of yet. We’re going to have to have a look at this thing and actually see if it is a good replacement — on the other hand, smartphones have been known to replace dedicated MP3’s, so who knows?.
