Samsung Galaxy Music gets an official launch
10 Oct 2012
Budget Android music phone comes with Ice Cream Sandwich
We heard a strong rumour about this at the start of last week, but now the Samsung Galaxy Music is official.
In truth, not a lot has changed and we're still missing those vital details of availability and price. But judging by the specification and features, this is likely to be a low to mid-range handset, albeit one that comes with Ice Cream Sandwich from launch. Not bad for a cheapie.
The phone is said to be powered by a single core 850MHz processor, with a 3-inch 240x320 QVGA display, a 3-megapixel camera, 4GB of internal memory and a microSD slot also present.
Dual front speakers justify the 'Music' tag, as does compatibility with a wide range of music formats, including FLAC, AAC and OGG, with the handset also offering Sound Alive and SRS audio modes, along with a dedicated music player button and FM radio. If loud music is top of your priority list, you'll find much to admire here.
Samsung also mentions a WVGA projector built into the handset. Some have already cast doubt on that suggestion, based on the initial images and shape of the phone. You might want to double check that one before you buy if it's a deal breaker.
As we said, we're still waiting for the pricing and shelf date, but when it does arrive, it will be in both single and dual-SIM varieties.
