Samsung Galaxy Music announcement rumored for October 11

Samsung Galaxy Music announcement rumored for October 11

Samsung is reportedly sending out invitations to an October 11 event where they will be announce something new for their fans.  It’s said that the little soiree takes place at a recently opened Samsung store in Germany and could revolve around a Galaxy Music device.

The first time we saw the reference to a Galaxy Music came just this week when it was listed among other Samsung models promised to receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.  Presumably this is the latest in the Galaxy Media series and functions as a device that handles everything but calls.  On the other hand, the switch from media to music tells us it could potentially have less hardware and maybe lower price.

The details for the Galaxy Music are said to include Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 3-inch display, 850MHz processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, and 3-megapixel camera.  Still beefier than some phones on the market, the Galaxy Music is said to offer microSD slot and feature front-facing loudspeakers, a dedicated music app key, FM Radio (built-in FM antenna), Samsung’s SoundAlive technology and SRS.  Oh, and then there’s this bit about it coming in single-SIM and dual-SIM models.  Strange stuff to be certain, but we’ll get more details soon.

What do you think of the Galaxy Music as it stands today?  Is there any reason to even put something like this out or would Samsung be better served with focusing on higher-end stuff?
