Samsung has officially launched the Galaxy Music Duos in India. This is the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Music handset and is available for purchase through Samsung official eStore for Rs 9,199.

Those who had applied for the Notify Me option on the Samsung eStore have started to receive messages from the smartphone giant stating that the handset is available for purchase. As of now, it appears that only the blue version of the handset is available and the white variant is out of stock. Those interested in purchasing this handset also have the option to pay for it by Cash on Delivery.

Last week, it was reported that this dual-SIM GSM handset is available on only one retail website for Rs 8,999. It was also on Samsung’s official eStore; however, at the time, one could not buy it through the official store as it had not been launched. On Flipkart, the handset appears to have launched and priced at Rs 8,990 but as of writing, the device is out of stock. It appears that if one would want to purchase this handset online, it is only available on the official Samsung eStore.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Music in early October. The Galaxy Music runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, has a 3-inch QVGA TFT screen and is powered by an unnamed processor. The dual-SIM version, Galaxy Music Duos, shares the same specifications.

Although it doesn’t look like it’s an audiophile-grade offering, the prominent stereo speakers on the top and bottom of the phone don’t let you doubt for a moment that it’s meant for those who use their smartphones mostly for music. Apart from this, the phone’s specifications sheet boasts of support for any major audio format you’re likely to come across, including mp3, OGG, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, amr-nb, amr-wb, wav, mid, imy, flac, and wma. You also have a music player with SoundAlive technology and SRS audio modes. Other features include Smart Volume, Music View and a stereo FM radio with RDS.

The Galaxy Music seems like quite a chunky little phone, as the dimensions peg it at 12.25 mm in depth and 106 gm in weight. The Galaxy Music comes with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin on top of the ICS UI, along with a variety of bloatware including Samsung Hub, Samsung Kies and the Samsung ChatON messenger. You get 4 GB of internal memory, 512 MB of RAM and a standard Li-ion 1300 mAh battery. The device has a fixed-focus 3 megapixel camera with no flash. It can capture video in WVGA format at 25 frames per second.

Here’s a quick look at the highlighted specifications of the Galaxy Music:

  • 3.0-inch QVGA TFT touchscreen with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels
  • 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct
  • GPS with GLONASS
  • Bluetooth v. 3.0, USB 2.0 (Micro)
  • 3 megapixel rear fixed focus camera, no flash
  • 4GB internal memory, microSD expandable up to 32GB
  • Built in FM Antenna (FM Intenna)
