A phone from the last company you’d expect

If we had to make a list of companies that are likely to make a phone, Marshall would probably be pretty low in that list. Nevertheless, they’ve gone and made their own phone dubbed the London aimed at music lovers. Marshall has put their design chops to work with the new phone, sporting their trademark (if faux) leather finish.

The phone has two (yes, two) 3.5mm jacks, as well as a high-quality audio processor, the ability to play uncompressed FLAC files, dedicated music button on the top that launches Marhall’s music app, and an actual volume knob on the side. The phone is fairly mid-range when it comes to specs – 4.7-inch HD display, Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and Android Lollipop on board. The phone also comes with Marshall’s Mode in-ear headphones with every purchase.

Obviously the Marshall London is meant to appeal to a very specific type of user, and its price reflects that: it’s pegged to retail at around $499, which comes out to Php 22567 directly converted, which makes it one of the more expensive phones to hit the market for its specs. You can’t deny it’s absolutely gorgeous though.
