and also you are right that samsung releases products quite often but if you really look at the product it is released after a year only. what they release more often is dual sim / cdma versin of phone. see that was about to happen this year with galaxy ace plus and galaxy ace 2. but they did not release galaxy ace 2 because they already had galaxy ace plus . they released ace duos just a version of original ace . same in y they launch dual and cdma version of galaxy y . so if they launch galaxy music now you will only see dual and cdma version of the same model launched with same hardware in the next 8 months , but a complete new model at this price with better hardware will come only by oct 2013
rattler, 24 Sep 2012Samsung releases more droids than any other company, so I am expecting the market to be full i... morewell thanks and it is not about cortex a5 or cortex a9. the difference is of pricing . qualcomm chips are priced higher and broadcomm are cheaper . and the gpu does not have to be added . it is in built in the chipset . it is a complete package with cpu + gpu , galaxy chat has a good enough gpu which is inbuilt into the chipset and not seperate, . see the mediatek chip in micromax . it is cortex a9 dual core for 9500rs . and if galaxy chat can come for 8500 with qwerty , i dont think full touch with 320 x 480 should be a problem at that price . since they are 256 k screens they are not that pricey . i just hope that samsung release it with 3.2 320 x 480 and not 320 x 240 . because looking at the previous models a 3.2 inch with 320 x 240 is likely to come. but if it wants to compete with tipo/explorer it has to come at that resolution. if that is not the case i am going with explorer but i hope they announce it on 27 sept so that we should know what is coming
rattler, 24 Sep 2012First of all why would there be an offense? We are just discussing here. Your research is good... morelww cannot be killed or competed by useless smasung in midrange at same price!!!
Samsung releases more droids than any other company, so I am expecting the market to be full if Samsung droids in the next 6 months. I also feel that 320x480 in the budget range will not be there from Samsung because for that res they will have to give a nice GPU and all this will raise the price. The tipo is cheap because of the older cortex A5 CPU. A new cortex A9+GPU+320x480 feels like more than 11k to me.

Your research is good and I myself would like to see something from Samsung soon. The dates are absolutely right, and yes, qwerty phones have a separate market of their own but where the gchat excels is the fairly large screen with the keypad, so it is a sort of a fusion of the 'touchscreen only' and the 'qwerty' markets. 3 and 3.2" is almost same and nobody would get a branded phone in this range larger than this. I think that Samsung might give a chance to the gchat to develop its market so they might release another phone sometime afterwards. I also don't feel that a music phone will be sold in the budget range. Another thing is that Samsung has its Android music players also, so the Galaxy Music may well be a music player. We can just contemplate here. Samsung is also in a habit of releasing a phone and the releasing an upgraded version after a few months just like the y duos was launched some time after the y. Lastly I can say that even if a budget droid is announced after a few days it won't be available instantly, so either way you will have to wait for a few months. Well I may have a new laptop soon so I might be able to wait. Lets see what happens.
and 1 thing i couldn't edit my post , so when i mean they dont have any full touch phone for 2012 from 6000 to 10000 , by that i mean based on new hardware. galaxy pocket is just a small screen version of galaxy y with cheap price with same hardware of 2011. so in 2012 they have only 1 phone with new hardware of 2012 , which is galaxy chat the broadcomm 21654 ARM V7 CHIP . all other are of 2011 lineup of broadcomm arm v6 chip . whatever this phone is it will come before the end of october .
rattler, 24 Sep 2012I think that the Galaxy Music will be a mid range device to compete with the lww. Its just a s... moreno offence but i dont think it will be a midranger why , 1 reason is that the naming scheme i have told you. there are other reasons . galaxy y was launched in october last year . so it is due for replacement and samsung replaces every product after exactly 1 year .
ace in jan11 , ace plus in jan12 . s2 in may11 s3 inmay12. note in oct11 , note 2 in oct 12.
in mid range that is from rs 10000 to 20000 they already have 4 phones for this year . at 11k we have ace duos. at 15k we have ace plus . at 18k we have s duos . s advance was initially priced at 22 - 25 k range but it has come down to 19k. all these phones are of 2012 lineup . they will get updated in mwc. after they complete 1 year . also they have ace 2 and mini 2 for midrange which hasn't been released till now in india . so mid ranger is full now. it wont be a high end for sure as they want s3 and note 2 there. now lets talk about low end . they have divided low end in 2 segment . one is ultra cheap 6000 rs range and other a bit higher upto 8500 range . which they have pocket and pocket duos ( galaxy y lite). they have launched cdma galaxy y with diff hardware but that is limited as it is cdma and most prefer gsm. so they don't really have a new phone for 2012 from rs 6000 to rs 10000. yes they have launched galaxy chat but as you can see from physical form it is an upgrade to galaxy y pro duos of last year. and a niche phone for text lovers . they still don't have a 2012 phone for rs 6000 to rs 10000 . so it will be 99 % galaxy music. regarding availability , note 2 is shipping with jelly bean already. so after october any new phone from samsung will have jelly bean out of the box. and if that were the case they wouldn't have mentioned it in the upgarade list. note 2 is still to be announced in india on 27 september and i guess that is when they will launch galaxy music. as last year also they were launched together .
and last thing. we already have many models of galaxy y , like y duos , y lite , y cdma . so they might have thought of going with a new name to not confuse . galaxy y means galaxy young. so what better could be the name of its successor than the word music . and hence galaxy music.
so in short there upgarde cycle is like this from past year .
feb mwc - all mid range to low high end devices . may - there flagship . october - note series and a budget droid.
also sony has launched tipo , htc explorer is 1 year old now so all the money will go to sony now. and what do you think samsung will sit and see them eat up. as the no of people buying phones in low end segment is huge. htc wont release any phone now , they have officially announced that.
ofcourse it is my guess and i still could be wrong, but it is a calculated estimate . so chances of galaxy music being galaxy y successor are very high . and we might see an announcement on sept 27 on note 2 launch.
rish-, 24 Sep 2012also samsung has galaxy s for high end , galaxy ace for mid range and all the other galaxy nam... moreI think that the Galaxy Music will be a mid range device to compete with the lww. Its just a speculation though. I don't think that Music will be the name of the successor of the Y. Its highly unlikely. And if there is a successor of the Y then Samsung won't launch it before Q1 2013. It may be announced at the MWC next year in Feb. And that means it won't be available until April 2013 in India. I'm not waiting till then.
than, 23 Sep 2012yesterday i bought this phone and when i speak i hear a noise in the backround it seems like ... moreyes man. i also have the same problem. My sound is getting back to me as a type of echo or something else. But, expect that, its a good phone....
Hey guýz. Which 1 is best ? Htc explorer or xperia tipo, plz reply guýz
[deleted post]Not many want 320x240, i doubt many are waiting for it, but its a good fone to bring feature fone users into the Android ecosystem.
also samsung has galaxy s for high end , galaxy ace for mid range and all the other galaxy names are for entry level , like young ,pop , gio , mini ,
so this is what galaxy y successor will be , i just hope it has 3.2 inch with 320 x 480 resolution.
i recently purchased this phone well speaking abt cons this phone's camera is bad n video songs clarity is also bad. the keyboard is bit clumsy wish the screen width was bit more. pros are it has more internal memory n ram is 512mb of all it has android version 4.0.3 n the price is below 10k(rs). on the whole i would rate 3.5 out of 5 for this phone
geo, 24 Sep 2012guys does this phones glass can resist on strong hits;;;That's what the specs say at least.
Ajit, 23 Sep 2012definitely lww is better in specs, but it also cost more than tipo. lww is a mid range droid, ... moreI agree with you. lww should not be compared with Tipo.
By the way Sony Ericson will be history soon.
adad, 24 Sep 2012i agree with you it has wonderful specs on its range,but if you have used it for a long time,y... moreman remember thyat tipo and lww are sony products, and that lww is in a totally higher range that sony won't forget before doing their own midrange not low end phone
