Audiophiles will surely love this: Global audio brand Marshall has just announced its foray into the smartphone industry with the introduction of the London smartphone.
Yep, that’s the name, and it’s a music-centered Android device that is equipped with a 4.7-inch HD display, A Snapdragon 410 processor, and 2GB of RAM. It’s got some tricks under its sleeve too, as the London sports a physical wheel for scrolling, and a dedicated M button for instant access to music, powered by the Wolfson WM8281 Audio Hub, two ACC stereo speakers, and two audio jacks that bear different volume controls and can be used simultaneously for different functions.
