Samsung reveals budget friendly Galaxy Music smartphone
Music maestro and budget friendly are just two ways of describing the Samsung Galaxy Music, another addition to the manufacturer’s growing Android portfolio.
The Samsung Galaxy Music runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which though not the latest Jelly Bean offering is to be expected from a handset that - judging by the rest of the specs - is geared towards an entry-level audience.
So what of those specs? We’ll we’re looking at a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 3-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with a 240 x 320 pixel resolution and a “powerful processor”. What type of CPU this will be however is unclear, with Samsung remaining tight-lipped. We’d suggest you don’t expect a quad-core.
While it may be lacking in some areas, the Samsung Galaxy Music tries to make it up with its audio credentials. A dedicated key will fire up the music player which is capable of planning all manner of music files from the usual MP3 and WMA formats to the more obscure.
Found on the front of the device are dual stereo speakers, while there’s also an FM and 3.5mm headset jack. As for the quality of sound, Samsung has included its SoundAlive technology and SRS to enhance the experience. All welcome additions, though nothing you wouldn’t find in any higher-end device.
No word on pricing or availability yet, but Samsung has said that a dual SIM version will also be available in the shape of the Samsung Galaxy Music Duos.
