Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8 Confirmed – More Details to Come

Are you ready for a bigger screen from Samsung? Well check out their new Galaxy Media Player. It has a 5.8 screen. That’s bigger than their current Galaxy Note Phone and their rumored Galaxy Note 2 to be announced next week. While it hasn’t been confirmed yet; it’s been said that the resolution isn’t up to par with other Galaxy players and phones at 960 x 540. This should help with pricing.

Equipped with a 1 GHz dual-core and 1 GB RAM; seems pretty decent. The Galaxy media player comes with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 (let’s hope for a Jellybean update) and of course TouchWiz user interface. You have a choice between 16 GB and 32 GB internal storage. You can add up to 32 GB of memory with a microSD card. You can choose either black or white body frames. Connectivity on the media player includes Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and GPS as usual. It comes with a 3 megapixel rear-facing camera and a front facing VGA camera.

There should be more details released at IFA next week. Samsung is really pushing the big screen gadget movement. With the success of their Galaxy Note phablet; a big screen player seemed to be the obvious next step. Do you think Samsung is really pushing it with such a huge screen? Will consumers settle for their smaller screened Galaxy media players? Are people even buying additional media players? I always listen to my music on a media player as opposed to my smartphone. I hate the idea of the battery running out.

    I want to know, who actually buys these Galaxy Players and man, does this thing look huge. I still think most people who still rather buy an iPod Touch over this and I’m assuming most kids these days don’t know what a Galaxy Player is anyways.

    Most of us adults don’t even buy dedicated portable media devices anymore because out phones do all this now. So again, who buy these? I’m just sayin.
