Samsung Galaxy Music images and full specs surface
The upcoming device will be sold in two versions: the Samsung GT-S6010 Galaxy Music and the Samsung Music DUOS Galaxy GT-S6012. The second one is obviously a dual-SIM version of the same handset.
There is no information on the exact release date and prices, but we expect the phone to arrive for the Holiday quarter across the globe and the price to be very affordable.
The upcoming Galaxy Music is said to feature a 3-inch QVGA LCD display, and come with a 3-megapixel camera. Internal storage will be 4GB, expandable via microSD cards by 32GB more. The device does support Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, with the latter allowing speeds of up to 7.2Mbps.
Good news is that Samsung is finally done shipping Android 2.3 Gingerbread devices, and the two new Galaxy Music models will arrive with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board. Given that Samsung is updating its lower end devices to Jelly Bean, we hope the Galaxy Music will also get bumped up.
Most of all, the Music will be about... you guessed it right, music. It comes with big stereospeakers on the sides, check it out below. How do you like what you see?

You must really hate Samsung with a strong passion to create another account, after getting banned on your StephenGalop one, to keep trolling on Samsung articles. Try yoga bro..

If you don't like options don't buy them but let the rest of us enjoy devices that do what we want them to for less than $200 on contract.

I like Samsung I really do you guys can read my other posts. But really? this device isn't gonna be turnin heads and driving sales...what's the point?
Come On Sammy give us another revolution like the Galaxy series and the Note series...
And is it just me or does the design on the screen remind anyone of a samsung beats phone or something like that which came out a couple of years ago?

Samsung are about selling to all levels of the market. Premium smartphone all the way down to feature phone.

I'd just like to know why ALL phones don't have the speaker port on the front.

Tell you the truth it'll kinda awkward not to mention it'll be overkill on full volume...just sayin'

To be honest, the home button looks like the one on the Galaxy Pocket, but it's nice that it supports a lot of file formats.
Replacement for the Galaxy Y, maybe?

This I would not buy.. what they should do is focus on just a player.. no phone. A strong focused music and media player with no camera... with JB id be on that like white on rice. It would be perfect for work.

I promise you, if they make two of them, the with the camera, and the one without the camera, most consumers will pick the one with a camera. Just saying. Most consumers prefer all-in-ones, though a smartphone will have all those things, there are people I know that luv their feature phones and see no use in having a smartphone, and they bought MP3 players and some even wish their MP3 Players had cameras, just saying, sometimes we like have everything picked in one box.
I hope I make sense!!!

Makes sense I just cant use anything with a camera at work lol, working in a law office has its drawbacks. Can listen to music.. but cannot use anything with a cell radio in it or camera. :(

Definitely. Plus less consumption on the battery. I always carry a separate music player. Don't want to spend my phone's battery for playing music.

Love samsung's strategy... They are the best at producing such a large variety of phones. Most of the times when people ask me about phone recommendation and start telling their preferences, 90% the narrowed down specs only match with some Samsung phone!! I'm not a fan though..

Why the hell add camera and 3g? They should have focused on just a music player. Wifi would be welcome but camera and 3g on a music player? Jeez. Without them, these players could cost hella lot cheaper than it would that i'd buy a lot to send as gifts!
10. PowTheBowl (Posts: 82; Member since: 19 Apr 2012)
Samsung already offers Galaxy Players that have no 3G...

Teenagers don't really want to carry 2 devices around but there aren't very many phones that really focus on music. Now they have a good option. The more options we have as consumers the better, it doesn't matter if you don't like it, you don't have dislike it unless you're just a hater. I don't want my grandmothers iphone but i'm glad it exists for people like her. There are more markets than just you.

I wouldn't think music was Samsungs strong point considering the speakers will most likely be tinny and not very good and they don't make headphones besides the ones for their phones, so we'll have to see...

Why the f*** can't you just put better audio codecs in high-end smartphones and just sell those?

the xperia live with walkman has better specs

Wouldn't kill Sammy if the screen was at least 3.5 inces vertically, and 4g connectivity, & skinnier body (if it's as fat as I think it is).
