Marshall steps onto the smartphone stage with the music-centric London

Not content making guitar amps, headphones and Bluetooth speakers, Marshall is now making its way into the world of Android with the unveiling of the Marshall London. Sporting a 4.7-inch 720p display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and an 8-megapixel camera, the Marshall London isn’t going to impress the hardcore Android fans. That’s perfectly fine, though, since Marshall is staying true to its roots by offering a smartphone that’s purely focused on music.

The London features front-facing stereo speakers similar to HTC’s BoomSound setup, a Wolfson WM8281 Audio Hub processing chip for high fidelity audio playback, two (no, that’s not a typo) 3.5mm headphone jacks so that you can listen to music with your friends, a gold-colored volume scroll wheel on the side and a dedicated M button on the top of the phone that gives you instant access to your music.

The design of the Marshall London is unique, with gold-accented ports and buttons intermixed with a leather textured, soft-touch polycarbonate. The sides sport a crosshatch textured plastic for a solid grip, and the display is sandwiched in between the two front-facing speakers. As you might expect, the phone also comes with a pair of Marshall Mode in-ear headphones to give you an incredible audio experience right out of the box.
