Samsung has launched its new media player, the Galaxy Player 70 Plus, a 5.0-inch Android handheld device that is not a phone.
Powered by a dual core processor, clocked at 1GHz, the Galaxy Player packs a 5 inch display, a 5MP rear snapper, and that all backed by a powerful 2500 mAh battery. Storage options include either 16GB or 32GB which is expandable via MicroSD card slot. While the 16GB version will retail for 399,000 (approx $356) won and the 32GB version will be selling for 469,000 won (approx $418). The Galaxy Player 70 Plus also will be powered by the Android operating system and skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface.
Other features include dual band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an FM radio in tow. A few region-specific apps have also been added to the fray, including Kakao Talk for messaging with other Galaxy Play 70 Plus and smartphone users alike. Those in Korea will also get a DMB TV tuner that will allow them to watch live TV on the go.
Unfortunately at the moment it appears to be available only in South Korea, and an international launch hasn’t been confirmed, we suspect it will happen before Apple gets chance to add a dual-core chip to its iPod touch, however. We’ll keep you guys update when the device makes it international debut.
