The rumor mill is in full effect today, after Samsung's recent listing of devices set to receive an upgrade to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) divulged a new smartphone: the Galaxy Music. While little was known about the handset at the time of the slip, the Internet has been a frenzy lately with leaked details of the phone.
The music-centric smartphone will apparently be an entry-level device, as Samsung opts for superior music technology rather than impressive specs. Rumored to house an 850MHz processor and 512MB of RAM, this upcoming smartphone from Sammy falls flat when compared to its other notable gadgets, like the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note 2. The real kicker for this phone comes in the form of two stereo external speakers, which were shown in action in a leaked image of the device.
The smartphone will reportedly sport a 3-inch QVGA (320 x 480) display, and will pack a measly 4GB of internal storage, though Samsung will offer users the option of more space via the phone's microSD slot. Thanks to the origin of the Galaxy Music's leak, the device can be expected to receive a tasty upgrade to Jelly Bean, though it will ship with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) under the hood.
In addition to a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, the handset will allegedly feature a dedicated key to open the music player, FM Radio with built-in FM Antenna, Samsung's SoundAlive technology and SRS, while reports also claim that Samsung will integrate its Music Hub service in the device.
A second version of the smartphone is also rumored to be bouncing about. Known as the Galaxy Music DUOS, the phone will feature similar specs to its brethren, with the add-on of dual-SIM support, which means this device isn't likely to hit the U.S. Yet, we will find out soon enough, as Samsung is expected to announce the duo at a press event in Frankfurt on October 11.
