7Digital will be pre-installed on the Samsung Galaxy S4 this year as the driver behind its Music Hub.
The partnerships means that over 100 million smartphone devices will ship with 7digital-powered music apps installed during 2013 including the Galaxy S4, BlackBerry Z10 as well as HTC and Windows Phone handsets.
This is the third time that 7digital has been selected as the music partner for Samsung’s flagship phone series, having had similar deals for the Galaxy S3 and S2 phones.
“We’re well known for delivering a high-quality digital music download experience globally, in partnership with many leading companies including Samsung,” said Ben Drury, CEO at 7digital.
MusicHub is a free app pre-installed on a range of Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S4. A monthly subscription is required to access streaming services.
“High growth of the mobile sector led us to expand our open music platform and technology, and we’re now powering a diverse range of mobile digital music services - including radio and on-demand subscription streaming. We're witnessing huge growth across the international markets we’re operating in, in both streaming and downloading of legal music.”
