The name was revealed on Samsung's official list of Jelly Bean-upgradable devices, and today brings more news of the curious little smartphone known as the Samsung Galaxy Music. Fresh details have emerged today via Austrian site Telecom-Presse, revealing a phone with humble specs and a distinctive front face. 

The device, which seems to be an entry-level smartphone focused on -- you guessed it -- music. Featuring two stereo speakers, a tiny 3-inch QVGA (240x320) display and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It's powered by an 850MHz single-core CPU, so you won't have a whole lot of horsepower to play around with, and as such we'd expect this thing to be priced competitively. Interestingly, there'll also be a dual-SIM version of the phone, branded as Galaxy Music Duos. This suggests Samsung may look to target the developing world with this device.

The Galaxy Music will reportedly make its debut at an event in Frankfurt on Oct 11 -- invites for this gathering recently started trickling out to the German press. We've got one more image after the break. Full specs can be found at the source link.

Samsung Galaxy Music leaks ahead of early October debut

I wonder what kind of sales Samsung is expecting? I have a hard time believing with those specs/screen size etc that it will be a huge success in the U.S.

I was in Walmart the other day (some of you can stop reading right there) and a lady was using her phone to play music out loud as she walked around. She is the market for this thing.

Oh man, I witnessed the same thing from a lady at the grocery store the other day. She was walking around shopping with her phone blaring music from her pocket at like ringtone levels. I just stopped and looked at her like she was crazy. Like you said, there must be a market for these types of devices...sadly.

You're right, I see this all the time on my CTA commute! This phone will only make it worse. Time to get some noise cancelling headphones.

This would be a great phone kids, tons of music and free or cheap in price, no one is going to get kids a high end model, or for people on a budget who listen to music constantly at jobs and work outs.

No!!! (I cringe at the thought of someone buying something like this!) Please, SAVE your hard earned money for a decent, better smartphone! The specs are low end, entry level. There's plenty of other good smartphones to choose from! And sorry, a 3 inch sized screen, IS TOO UNCOMFORTABLE to enjoy viewing!
