Samsung hits reverse, creates tiny 3-inch Galaxy Music phone

Samsung, the company best known for its gigantic 5-inch phones, has officially revealed the Galaxy Music, a small, 3-inch budget phone with a focus on music. On paper, the Galaxy Music isn’t likely to impress you, but if audio support is the main thing you look for in a smartphone then it might pique your interest.

It supports a wide variety of audio file formats including MP3, OGG, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, WAV, MID, IMY, FLAC, and WMA. It also boasts a built-in FM radio and, while it comes with just 4GB onboard memory, there is a microSD card slot so you can boost that up to 32GB. There is also a dedicated music button, dual front-facing stereo speakers, and support for Sound Alive and SRS modes.

If you want a dual-SIM phone then you’ll be pleased to hear there is a Galaxy Music Duos variant. There’s no word on the processor, but the display is 3 inches with a disappointing 240×320 pixel resolution. It runs Android 4.0 (ICS), has 512MB of RAM, and a 3-megapixel camera with no flash. There’s no support for LTE, but it does have a 9-lumen WVGA Projector on the top.

You’ll find the usual array of Samsung apps pre-loaded, the Touchwiz interface, and access to the Samsung Music Hub.

It’s not the prettiest phone we’ve ever seen, but it’s certainly different. We’ll keep you posted on availability and pricing.
