Marshall, a well-known brand in the audio market, which manufactures the guitar amps and speakers has come up with a surprising product. The company based out of UK has launched their first ever smartphone named “Marshall London”. Though, it packs specifications of a Nexus 4 generation,the design doesn’t focus for high-end smartphone users. Instead, company is offering this device for the music lovers and wants to provide the best music experience on a smartphone.
The smartphone packs dual front-facing speakers, dual audio outputs and a dedicated M button which can be assigned to your favourite music app. The company also provides a pair of Marshall Mode in-ear headphones along with the London.
According to the company, it is the loudest smartphone in the world. The volume rocker buttons are replaced by a gold coloured scroll wheel for adjusting the volume. The audio on this device is powered Wolfson WM8281 Audio Hub, which offers best mobile audio solutions.
Coming to the specifications, the London comes with 4.7-inch HD (1280×720) IPLS LCD display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection and powered by 64-bit Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. It has a 2GB of Ram, 16GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot and a removable 2,500mAh battery.
