Samsung adds Android 4 music player to Galaxy lineup

Samsung added an Android 4.0-based music player to its lineup of Galaxy devices of smartphones, tablets, media players and camera. The Galaxy Music is actually a budget smartphone with some music-centric features, including dual stereo speakers on the front and an FM radio.

The Galaxy Music features specs you would expect in a low-end Android phone. It has a 3-inch display with a 320-by-240 pixel resolution, a 3MP camera on the back with no flash, 4GB of built-in storage and 512MB of RAM. With these specs it seems this phone will be aimed at entry-level smartphone users.

The Galaxy Music’s features include dual stereo speakers (located under the grills on the front), Sound Alive and SRS audio decoding and enhancing technology, an FM radio with a built-in antenna and a dedicated music player button. There’s also a microSD card slot on board, for storage expansion up to 32GB.

The Galaxy Music runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with Samsung’s Touchwiz UI on top. The music player app on the phone also supports natively file formats such as FLAC and WMA on top of the usual MP3, AAC and WAV files.

Samsung did not say how much the Galaxy Music would cost, or when it would be available, but the company did mention that a dual-SIM version of the phone will also be available, called Galaxy Music Duos.

As a side note, Samsung’s press release specifications show that the Galaxy Music has a built-in 9 Lumen projector (like the Galaxy Beam), but the images of the phone show this is not the case.
