The Samsung Galaxy Music is the latest offering from the South Korean conglomerate which makes entertainment its utmost priority. And to honor this, the device arrives with the Android Ice Cream Sandwich platform that is accompanied by various features and audio enhancements such as Sound Alive and SRS.
Where technical specifications matter, the handset is fitted with a QVGA TFT capacitive touchscreen that spans 3 inches diagonally, proffering a resolution of 240 x 320p. When flipped over to the rear, the device reveals a 3MP fixed focus camera which can be implemented for capturing images and recording videos in WVGA resolution at 25fps. Connectivity needs are taken care of by GPS with Glonass, Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n in addition to HSPA and EDGE network support.
For hoarding content, the Samsung Galaxy Music offers 4GB of built in storage and a microSD card slot capable of taking on an additional 32GB of memory. Apart from 512MB, the company hasn’t specified any details regarding the processor. However, based on the components provided, it’s safe to assume that the device could house a single core SOC clocked between 800MHz to 1GHz. Also fitted within dimensions of 110.1mm x 59mm x 12.25mm is a Li-ion 1,300mAh battery.
Through the built-in music player, users will be able to access songs stored in MP3, OGG, WMA, AAC, AAC＋, eAAC＋ and FLAC formats, amongst others. And where videos are concerned, they can be previewed in VP8, MPEG4, H.263, H.264 encoding. Being powered by the Android Ice Cream Sandwich platform, the handset arrives pre-loaded with various Google services such as Google Play, Gmail, Search, Maps, Talk and Plus. Users will also find a couple of Samsung-specific apps like Music Hub and Game Hub Lite.
There’s no official mention of the Samsung Galaxy Music price and release date details as of now. However, this smartphone is likely to fall under the entry-level segment, affixed with a budget-friendly tag. The company plans on launching a dual-SIM version as well, which will carry the moniker Galaxy Music Duos.
