Technology major Samsung created a new plinth for music lovers by introducing the Android-powered Galaxy Music smartphone on Tuesday.
As the name implies, Galaxy Music is specifically designed for music and entertainment, hosting several features such as the dual frontal stereo speakers for superior audio quality and other advanced features like Sound Alive and SRS (Sound Retrieval System) to pump up audio clarity, tone, and certain effects. The device also features a dedicated button for quick access to the music player.
Galaxy Music comes with a three-inch QVGA resolution TFT display and runs on Android 4.0 OS backed by an 850 MHz processor. The device packs a 1,300mAh battery and measures 110.1 x 59.0 x 12.25mm.
Amongst other specifications are 512MB of RAM and 4GB of onboard memory which can be expanded up to 32GB. It also sports a 3-megapixel fixed-focus rear camera without flash.
Other features like WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS and USB 2.0 are included in Galaxy Music. There's also support for audio formats like MP3, OGG, AAC, AAC＋, eAAC＋, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, WAV, MID, IMY, WMA and in-built FM radio.
Samsung said the device packs a 9-lumen WVGA projector, which technology website GSM Arena reported will not feature in the device as per the claims of a Samsung representative.
"We were contacted by a Samsung representative, who claimed that the projector part was a mistake in the press materials and the Galaxy Music won't be having such functionality," it repo
Galaxy Music will be made available in three colour variants - blue, yellow and silver. The phone is also available in a dual SIM variant known as Galaxy Music Duos.
The company is yet to make known the availability and pricing of the device but reports suggest that it may fall in the ₹10,000.
