Marshall London hands-on: the smartphone for music lovers (Video)
As we remarked when just taking a look at the ASUS ZenWatch 2, one of the great things about trade shows is having the chance to finally check out already-launched hardware in person for the first time. Back in July, we first told you about a smartphone with some branding you might not expect, as the Marshall London made its debut. This week in Berlin, we had the opportunity to take a look (but sadly, not a listen) of this audio-focused handset first-hand.
The Marshall London has the unusual distinction of packing a pair of headphone ports, ready to not only let you listen to some tunes with your high-quality headphones, but to also share the music with a friend – and allowing both of you to set independent volume levels. The rest of the hardware doesn’t sound particularly envelope-pushing, but this is a phone that’s not trying to be a jack of all trades.
We also pick up the promising news that, while no US networks have yet signed-on to carry the London, Marshall is in discussions with carriers in the hopes of bringing the phone over here. Take a look below to see what else we found out:
