Marshall – the British brand behind legendary guitar amps – has surprised us all by unveiling the chic London Android Phone, a music-focused smartphone that’s actually inspired from the amps that made the Marshall name famous. Featuring a delicious pitch black exterior, with gold colored trimmings, this interesting phone is also pretty fast.
Yeah, we’re dealing with a basic Android phone, boasting a nice design and audio-friendly systems, but there’s more to it than that. The Marshall London phone features a 4.7-inch, 720p display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and an 8-megapixel camera; but the built-in music-focused functionality makes this smartphone special. You see, this is a phone for six string instrumentalists – who would have thought, right?
Marshall’s London phone features some unique controls, such as the “M” button, which allows one-touch control of music playback, or a gold-colored metal scroll wheel one side from where you can control the volume.
These controls may not be mind-blowing, but they add to the overall styling of the phone while providing some music-focused functionality. The London phone also features two front-facing speakers, as well as a pair of audio outputs.
This means guitar players may enjoy close-up stereo playback with a bit more stereo separation than your typical compact device. With these special audio functions, the Marshall London Android Phone might be the world’s loudest phone, expected to arrive in the US for $500-$600.
