Samsung GALAXY Music Arriving at Optus on November 15

The smartphone will be available for $150/€120 on no-term

The single SIM version of Samsung Galaxy Music has been recently confirmed for a November 15 release in Australia.

According to AusDroid, the smartphone will be available this Thursday from Dick Smith and Domayne retailers. In addition, major carrier Optus will also offer the Galaxy Music for $150/€120 on prepaid.

Samsung Galaxy Music was officially unveiled one month ago as a budget-friendly Android smartphone.

The South Korean company stated that the handset would be available on the market in Q4 2012 and it looks like Australia will be the second country to get the Galaxy Music, after the UK.

The Galaxy Music is aimed at first-time smartphone users, though it comes with a pretty recent version of Android out of the box, Ice Cream Sandwich.

In fact, Samsung promised the Galaxy Music would be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform soon after launch, so stay tuned for more details on this one.

Hardware-wise, the smartphone is far from being impressive, but is bang for buck for what it has to offer. The handset is equipped with an 850 MHz single-core Cortex-A9 processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory.

The amount of storage can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card. The Galaxy Music also sports a decent 3.0-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports 240 x 320 pixels resolution and 262k colors.

On the back, the smartphone packs a 3-megapixel rear photo snapper with video recording. Unfortunately, the Galaxy Music does not come with front-facing camera for video calls.

Other highlights of the phone include: HSDPA (7.2Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76Mbps), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS, as well as DLNA and Wi-Fi hotspot.

Last but not least, Samsung Galaxy Music is powered by a 1300 mAh Li-Ion battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer.
