Samsung BEATb (model: M3510) and Samsung BEATs (model: M3200) were announced as the first in the line of the company’s music phone line, “The BEAT Edition”. Digital Natural Sound engine, also known as DNSe, which is actually part of Samsung’s audio technology, (and is part of their TV range) provides more natural sound effects and helps reproduce a genuine 3D sound and deep bass resonance.
1. Samsung BEATb and Samsung BEATs offer ‘Auto EQ’ function that automatically turns the equalizer into the best setting according to the genre and type of the music users listen to.
2. By recording and sending a tune to Shazam server, users can easily track down and even purchase the song, through participating ioperators’ music stores, just like Sony Ericsson’s TrackId.
3. The two handsets come with ‘Motion Play’ feature, which enables users to control their music with a few simple motions. For instance, users can play or pause music by tapping their phone. By flipping the phone, the music is muted and the phone is automatically set on etiquette mode. Simply shaking the phone plays the next song or previous song.
4. The handsets also feature physical music control keys on the outside. Users can immediately play, stop, pause, fast forward or rewind music using these control keys even when working on other tasks such as sending text messages and playing mobile games.
Geesung Choi, President of Samsung’s Telecommunication Business, said the music phone market is one of the fastest growing areas in the mobile industry and still has potential to further grow. “Samsung hopes to set our own music mobile identity with the latest BEAT edition,” said Choi, adding that Samsung plans to continuously strengthen its music phone line.
