Yesterday we reported on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Music, a music-centric budget smartphone from Samsung. Now we know a little bit more about the handset, and that includes the first leaked images of the new device.
Just looking at the picture, this clearly has the look and feel of a budget device. As for specifications, don’t expect it to “wow” anyone with a single-core 850MHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Other features include a 3-inch QVGA screen, microSD, a 3MP camera and a single SIM or dual-SIM configuration. The good news is that it does run Android 4.0 and it is on Samsung’s list for future updates to Jelly Bean. The model numbers for the new phone models are listed as GT-S6010 and the GT-S6012 (for the Duos version).
What makes this a “music phone”, you ask? Even if this isn’t the fastest phone in town, it does pack two front-facing speakers and an FM Radio with a built-in antenna. The smartphone also offers SoundAlive and SRS technologies. The music features make this a near-perfect perfect for those looking for a sleek, slim device for jogging or hitting the gym. On the other hand, its small screen size and slow processor might be a turn off for some consumers.
One of the greatest things about Samsung offerings is that they cater to all types of consumers. From massive phablets to tiny 3-inch smartphones, you are more than likely to find a Samsung smartphone that is right for you. There is no official word on pricing or availability of the Samsung Galaxy Music, though it is expected to be unveiled at a scheduled October 11th press event in Germany.
