Samsung's music phones offer the ideal form factors for both music and mobile phone uses with its strong leadership in innovative design. With the launch of music dedicated phones such as the SGH-F300, Samsung has developed an innovative Physical User Interface (PUI), a mechanism ideal for music lovers. With an optimal PUI, Samsung offers its users the opportunity to enjoy its music player as if it were an MP3 player, even when the mobile phone is turned off.
Not only does the dual face design maximize duality, but the usability of convenient music control keys also satisfies the users to control both music and mobile phone features with ease. As Samsung delivers innovative dual form factors, the company also developed an advanced UI which maximizes the usability, according to whether the user wants to listen to music or use the mobile phone's other features.

Users are able to listen to their music alone or with company via the speakers using an ICEpower amplifier developed by Bang & Olufsen with superior audio fidelity. Also, ICEpower developed by Bang & Olufsen enhances battery life by saving power consumption.
As music dedicated devices, Samsung music phones allow the users to play various types of music files including MP3, AAC, AAC+, e-AAC+, WMA, WMDRM and to store additional music through the external memory slot. To support various formats including WMDRM, Samsung brings seamless compatibility with files purchased from online sites.
Choi Gee-sung, President of Samsung Telecommunication Network Business, said: "We have tried to understand what music lovers want from their music phones. I'm very confident that Samsung's music phone line-up is the best solution for users. With Samsung's music phones, users can enjoy 100% phone and 100% music player at the same time." He added: "We will continue to provide unique music phone experiences with various products."
As the most innovative music phone manufacturer, Samsung will expand its music line up to satisfy the needs of various consumer segments.
