Out of the blue and quite unexpectedly, Marshall Headphones has just launched an Android smartphone, and it’s a flagship device called the Marshall London. Marshall says this “might just be the loudest phone on earth.”
The Classic Gold Marshall London
The device will have Marshall’s classic gold detailing on its buttons and volume rockers and come with a matte-black finish. In brief, it looks rock-n-roll good.
The device is called “London”. It comes with two front facing speakers, which is not unusual. But it comes with two headphone jacks which is very unusual.
This means you and your friend can listen to a song or watch a movie together without the intervention of a dongle.
There is also a dedicated/signature M button on the top of the device, in between the headphone jacks. Marshall London will be used to launch your favourite music player. The volume rocker of the device is a gold accented scroll wheel on the left.
Marshall is also praising a special Wolfson WM8281 Audio Hub inside the device which will provide “higher resolution” audio playback.
They are also throwing in a set of Marshall Mode in-ear headphones with London.
Apart from this the Marshall London comes with pretty basic specs for a flagship.
On the software side, it will run Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop). Some pre-installed apps like a global audio equalizer and a special DJ app will also be provided.
On the display side, it will boast a 4.7-inch 720p display.
An 8 megapixel camera shooter will be provided.
2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage will be provided with a removable battery of 2500mAH.
This entire package will be offered at a pricing of $590.
But anyhow, with the specs above it is clear that the Marshall London isn’t about being able to compete with other flagships, it’s about the music experience.
If you ever wanted a Music-dedicated phone this is probably the phone for you. So get ready as this model will hit the market on August 17.
