The rumor mill has been abuzz with speculations and unconfirmed reports about the impending release of a new product by Samsung, and quite a number of observers believe that it is about Samsung Galaxy Music. This is now the center of discussion after the Korean company started sending out the invitations for its upcoming press event which will be held by the second week of next month at its newly-opened Frankfurt retail store.
Samsung is a bit stingy with information regarding the event and left a lot to our imagination with this teaser – “Ready for a little sensation? Be there when something small makes a big impact.” Some quarters insist that the company will unveil a “small” gadget during the event which is expected to be the company’s next big thing.
Samsung Galaxy Music caught the attention of tech buffs and market experts after it was included in the list of Samsung gadgets that are up for OS update. One name stood out as being new among a crop of Samsung gadget that we are familiar of – Samsung Galaxy Music.
An unnamed source has given us a sneak preview of this new and budget Samsung smartphone that is targeting “musicphiles.” At first glance, Samsung Galaxy Music comes off as an understated spin-off of the MP3 player. Not enough has been revealed so far about its specs and features even while we keep on reading bits and pieces of news about this new gadget.
According to the tipster, this low-end gadget will have under its hood a processor with 850MHz clocking, a 512MB RAM and internal memory of 4GB. Additionally, it will feature a 3-inch screen and a 3MP rear-facing camera. It is believed that it will come out of the box running on Android 4.0, although it will be ready for upgrade to 4.1 Jelly Bean. There are some indications that the Galaxy Music will be a single-SIM-card model, although things are still up in the air and a double-SIM gadget is also under consideration.
It is also worth noting that the name of this gadget – Galaxy Music – would not have been chosen had it not for the primary purpose of targeting consumers who love music. Thus, its features are expectedly music-centric. These include a dedicated key for music, front-facing speakers, FM antenna, SRS and Samsung’s proprietary technology SoundAlive. And its integration with the music hub of Samsung is a foregone conclusion.
There is no word yet on the probable release and selling price of Galaxy Music. However, with a modest hardware, it is safe to assume that it will be positioned at the lower end of the price spectrum. And with all the talk about big things that come in small sizes, the Samsung Galaxy Music may indeed take center stage on October 11.
