We know that Samsung’s strategy is to flood the market with as much models as possible, and so far it has worked for the company. Now Samsung is about to launch a new phone. It doesn’t have top specs, though. Instead, it’s a budget phone but with focus on music, hence the name Galaxy Music.
The Samsung Galaxy Music will sport a 3-inch QVGA (320×240) display and run a single-core 850 MHz processor. The processor will be paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. If you need more storage, the Galaxy Music has micro-SD slot for storage expansion. The rest of the specs include WiFi, Bluetooth, micro-USB, GPS, and a 3 megapixel rear camera. The phone will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box but word is, a Jelly Bean update is already planned.
Being a music phone, the Samsung Galaxy Music features physical dual stereo speakers on the front of the device placed at the top and at the bottom. To enhance the music listening experience, the Galaxy Music will also have FM Radio with built-in FM Antenna, SoundAlive and SRS.
The overall design appears colourful and should appeal to the younger crowd. Two models of Galaxy Music are rumored to be released, one to be simply called the Galaxy Music (GT-S6010) which will have single SIM support and the Galaxy Music Duos (GT-S6012) which will have dual-SIM capability.
This recent effort by Samsung reminds me of music phones Nokia released in the past. They used to be popular too but they did not really get much traction. If the Galaxy Music is properly priced, it could sell well.
