Images and specs leaked for new Samsung Galaxy Music devices

Foreign site Telekom Presse obtained some images and specifications for a pair of Samsung devices that are in the works. The devices are the Samsung Galaxy Music and the Samsung Galaxy Music DUOS. Contrary to the bigger is better trend, these devices will come with 3.0-inch screens, an A9 850 MHz processor and 4GB of internal memory that can be increased via the addition of 32GB microSD cards. The pair of phones will initially come loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The DUOS version will be dual-sim capable. Definitely not a device for those interested in powerhouse devices and maybe not even for those interested in a device for typical smartphone duties.

However, the devices may be of interest to users who are into music. Each will come equipped with an FM radio receiver and antenna along with the ability to record FM broadcasts. Samsung has built in speakers at both ends of the device to improve sound quality and numerous music based applications will be preloaded.

It is not entirely clear what market Samsung hopes to tap into with these devices. They are similar to portable media players and thus will probably suffer from some of the issues other devices in that niche experience, although the addition of phone functionality may help. However, the hardware specs and small size seem to work against the devices for a smartphone buyer who may be wooed by the addition of nice music features.

No word on pricing or availability. Do you think pricing and availability will really matter with either of these devices?
