Samsung has just officially announced the Galaxy Music. The smartphone is aimed at music lovers on a tight budged, who want to get an Android-packing device with superb sound quality and advanced music player features.
Running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy Music is built around 3.0-inch QVGA TFT display. Sadly, the processor specs haven’t been fully disclosed yet, but we know there’s 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage available. Happily, microSD card slot is available to expand the memory by up to 32GB.
There’s a 3MP fixed-focus main camera at the back with no flash. Connectivity is covered by Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 3.0 and microUSB port.
The little smartphone also features a 9-lumen WVGA projector. Just like with Samsung’s other projector-packing smartphone, the Galaxy Beam, the one on the Galaxy Music is placed at the top of the device.
Update: We were contacted by a Samsung representative, who claimed that the projector part was a mistake in the press materials and the Galaxy Music won’t be having such functionality.

Measuring 110.1 x 59.0 x 12.25mm, the Galaxy Music weighs 106.9 grams. It packs a 1,300mAh battery, but ratings haven’t been published yet.
As its name suggests, the Samsung Galaxy Music packs some cool music enhancing features such as dual frontal stereo speakers, Sound Alive, SRS and Smart Volume. There’s also a dedicated Music key, which provides a quick access to the music player.
Pricing and availability are still a mystery, but Samsung will also launch a dual-SIM version of the device called Galaxy Music Duos.
