Music phone also to come in dual-SIM version
Samsung has announced the launch of the newest addition to its Galaxy line of smartphones, the Galaxy Music. The new Android 4.0 smartphone is aimed at users that want more dedicated music functionality from their handsets. It will be compatible with an array of music file formats, as well as packed with a number of Samsung music and media apps.
The main music feature of the new phone is the front speaker arrangement. The Galaxy Music has dual frontal stereo speakers, allowing it to deliver better sound than many devices with side or rear speakers.
The Galaxy Music sports a 3-inch QVGA TFT display with a 240x320 resolution. Its 3MP rear camera is fixed-focus and has no flash, but it can record in WVGA at 25fps. Inside, it has 4GB of user-accessible memory and 512MB of RAM. Users can expand the storage space of the Galaxy Music up to 32GB with a microSD card.
The Galaxy Music has access to Samsung Music Hub and Samsung Game Hub, as well as Samsung Kies, and Samsung's ChatON mobile communication service. It can also access Google's Play Store for additional apps. It will be available in a single-SIM model as well as a dual-SIM model. Samsung has not given information on pricing and availability.
