If this isn’t Samsung’s newest Galaxy Media Player then honestly, we don’t know what it is. It looks as if it’s sharing the bezel and overall design of the Galaxy S III while also sharing most of the same widgets and applications. The new media player will rock an eye-popping 5.8 inch screen – a full inch larger than the Galaxy S III (measured diagonally). However, it will sport only a qHD (960 x 540) TFT LCD display, so images won’t appear as crisp as on the Galaxy S III. As far as muscle, we’re looking at a 1GHz dual-core processor, which is plenty for most people, especially when compared to other competition out there.
One feature of note is the stereo speakers found on the player which will make it more usable in noisier environments. Other disappointments include the fairly lackluster 3.0 megapixel camera and the fact that it comes with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. However, this shouldn’t hinder most buyers who are in the market for such a device. Unlike the Galaxy S III, this new Galaxy media player will in fact come in black from the onset rather than waiting a few months after launch. The player hasn’t been officially announced yet so obviously launch specifics aren’t known at this time.
