Samsung introduces value version of Galaxy Beam called Galaxy Music

Samsung has quietly introduced a new entry level smartphone called the Galaxy Music, which comes with a built in WVGA projector (9 lumen at 1W). It is also the first device we know of on the market that features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a 240 x 320 display.

The Galaxy Music has a rear 3-megapixel camera with no flash, can record at WVGA resolutions (that’s 800 x 480), has a 3in display, SoundAlive technology, a FM radio with RDS, TouchWiz user interface, Samsung Apps, Samsung Hub, Chat On, GPS and GLONASS, Bluetooth, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi, 512MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot and a 1,300mAh battery.

Samsung hasn’t yet confirmed when the device will go on sale and at what cost. There will also be a dual SIM version sold under the Galaxy Music Duos brand.

It is clear that Samsung is focusing on a younger audience by combining the ability to socially share videos and pictures with features like dual speakers and SRS.

Its bigger brother, the Galaxy Beam, was launched earlier this year and was the only mainstream smartphone of its type until now.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
