Samsung has announced the launch of GALAXY Music, a smartphone that offers superb sound quality and superb music player features.
GALAXY Music runs on Android 4.0 (Ice-Cream Sandwich) and is backed by a powerful processor that guarantees smooth and fast performance. The device has dual frontal stereo speakers that deliver outstanding sound quality further bolstered by FM radio and advanced audio features such as Sound Alive & SRS.
GALAXY Music promises high-speed downloads, abundant memory and Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing everyone to experience seamless music and multimedia applications on-the-go. Furthermore, it features a unique Music Dedicated key that provides quick and convenient access to the music player for the perfect listening experience.
Other features: 3 inch display (with a disappointing QVGA resolution), HSDPA, GPS, WVGA projector, 3MP rear camera, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. Samsung says the Galaxy Music has "a powerful processor" - we've heard it's an 850MHz one, but that is pretty far from powerfu
GALAXY Music will also be available in a dual-SIM version in the form of the GALAXY Music Duos.
No release date has been announced yet.
Samsung's S Pebble will soon sell in America as Muse. Users using a Galaxy device (Samsung galaxy s II, Galaxy S II Skyrocket, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note II) will be able to connect to Muse and with the aid of the Muse Sync app(download link below), transfer songs along with other data without the need to connect with laptop computer. The Muse music player features a metal clip, 3.5mm headphone jack, 4GB internal storage and SoundAlive audio tech, and it only costs $49 dollars.
Here's the samsung description on the Muse:
Designed to be the perfect music companion to your Samsung Galaxy handset, Muse is an MP3 player which can interface directly with most Galaxy handsets (see Specs for compatibility details). Transfer usic directly from your Galaxy smartphone to your Muse via the Muse Sync app available in Google Play. The clip-on design makes Muse especially useful for active listeners who don't want to take a phone along on their morning jog.
The Music Hub, a relatively unnoticed app from Samsung, hasn't seen the kind of reach it needs with only 7 countries offering it to customers, on an even smaller number of available handhelds. TJ Kang, Senior VP of Media Services explained that the service will be expanding its borders soon, telling The Next Web that Samsung plans to inject themselves into more phones in 2013. Although it is dwarfed by the behemoth apps like iTunes and Google Play, Samsung still has a solid blueprint laid out for the next 5 years and hasn't given up on getting their toes wet when it comes to selling the owners of their handsets licensed and copyrighted music at a reasonable cost over the air.
According to Korean Newspaper Samsung Galaxy Note III may comes with camera which is capable of recording 4K UHD(3840*2160) videos and also offers 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback that generates studio like quality sound far better than CD which only offers at 16 bit/44.1kHz
The Korea Economic Daily apparently has it from industry sources that the Galaxy Note 3 will be able to record 4K UHD videos - that's a resolution of 3840 x 2160 (2160p) or 8.3-megapixel - which will feel right at home on those new 4K TV sets out there.
We'll remind you that the LG G2 is going to offer users a camera with OIS features, something that was expected from the Galaxy Note 3 as well.
- Other Rumored Specifications of device are:
- 5.68 Full HD Super Amoled Display
- Snapdragon 800/Exynos 5420 Chipset
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB/64GB internal storage
- 13Mpx camera
- Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
- 3420mAh battery
The device will be officially unveiled at IFA2013 on September 4
Samsung has received a couple of patents displayed on the Korean patent information website called KIPRIS. These new patents probably likely to be embeded into new interface for the GALAXY S5.
Samsung has received patents for one handed operation on big smartphones. According to the patent Samsung gives everyone the opportunity to choose which corner they want to use this function. Customers are now able to use one hand and select all kinds of functions such as apps, notifications or favorite calls. We have to say that this looks pretty smart to use on big smartphones with huge displays!
Secondly Samsung received patents on probably their new music interface which is deeply integrated with social media. If we will see this application called "Friends Music" back on the GALAXY S5 remains the question.
According to the latest rumours will Samsung introduce the GALAXY S5 on day before MWC 2014.

If you are one of those who want applications that feature clean and simple user interface, you might want to try the Beam Player. This is a simple player that directly plays music from your folders. This application features simple buttons and is quite responsive when used on tablets.
It looks quite clean with all the typical buttons but everything on the screen will surely have a major function. No confusing additions and toggles for you to get lost in. All you need to do with the Beam Player is look for your file on your folders and play. The tabs on the top portion also allow you to look into your most recently-played music as well as a "favorites" folder.
Simple controls characterize this music player and one thing that also makes it a good pic is that it fits well in any size of screen. It is now available in Google Play for free and you can shell out an extra $2.01 for an ad-less Beam Player.
What's in this version:
- Fixed bug "can't close notification when music is paused"
- Lockscreen controls
- Expendables notifications for android 4.1+
- Headset buttons support (play/pause)
- Album covers form mp3 tags
