Samsung Unveils GALAXY Music Smartphone With 3" Screen And Built-In Projector

ICS handset sports a 3 MP camera and stereo speakers; no details about its pricing and launch date yet.


Samsung has added a new member to its smartphone lineup called the GALAXY Music. As its name suggests, the USP of the device is its music playing capabilities. Although the handset appears to be a budget droid, it features Android 4.0 (Ice cream Sandwich). Moreover, much like the GALAXY Beam, this one packs in a 480p pico projector. Samsung claims that the handset features a "powerful processor", but doesn't shed any light on the important details such as its clock speed. In the looks department, what sets it apart from others is a pair of SRS-enabled speakers on the front. The phone's modest 3" touch screen has pixel dimensions of 240x320. Here's the list of specs confirmed by the manufacturer:

  • Quad-band GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz), Dual-band 3G (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz).
