A couple days back, Samsung’s list of devices on-track for getting Jelly Bean included one outlier, something we’d never heard of before called the Galaxy Music. We hadn’t the foggiest idea what such a thing might be, and wondered if its inclusion on that list might be little more than a mistake. Well, the Galaxy Music rumors don’t look like they’re about to die-down that easily, and invitations to a Samsung event in mid-October are attracting attention thanks to a possible connection to this rumor.
Samsung’s planning to hold a presentation in Frankfurt, Germany on October 11, where it advises attendees that they’ll get the chance to see something small make a big impact. That sort of language has been brewing-up thoughts of a portable device with a big sound, which could be just what this mysterious Galaxy Music ends up being.
On the other hand, maybe it’s not a portable device at all, and Samsung’s working on something like the Nexus Q for direct connection to stereo systems. The fact that we haven’t heard anything more from Samsung about the Galaxy Music (including a retraction) does seem to imply that it’s a real product that we’ll finally get to meet one day. We can’t say if that will be as soon as October 11, but it’s at least one possibility worth considering.
