However the Marshall London is designed not to impress the spec-hungry but more the music hungry. The company claims that Android today needs more personality, and not more performance. The phone is relatively low end with a 4.7-inch, 720p display. Dependant on 2GB of RAM, a 2500 mAh (removable) battery, and a Snapdragon 410 processor which is seen in some of the most popular low end phones.
The London has been priced higher than expected for roughly US $ 549 or Rs. 35000. But, the intention that the phone serves is different. Apart from being completely brilliant to look at, the music centric London has excellent audio processing. Dual headphone outputs, Dual front speakers and a jog dial for precise controls. There is a dedicated “M” button on the top for easy access to music.
There, However, seems to be various implications of the dual headphone jacks. Thick of multi track mixing or recording. Dual independent outputs to separate devices, and dual monitoring when mixing tracks on a DJ app. From a use case point of view, it eliminates quite a few hurdles. The phone won’t be available till late Aug, in the meanwhile however, you can check out the pictures of the beautiful Marshall London below.
