It looks like the Samsung Galaxy Player (YP-GB1) is very close to release in the electronics giant's home country of South Korea. Samsung Hub reports that pre-orders for the device are set to begin on the 4th of February.
The device apparently “takes inspiration” from the Galaxy S (our High-End Smartphone of the year) and boasts very similar specs to it – except the phone functionality, of course. This bears a very striking resemblance to the iPhone and the iPod Touch – the device it’ll go head-to-head against.
The PMP will run on Android 2.2 Froyo and will feature a 1GHz CPU, a 4-inch Super Clear LCD screen at 800×480 (WVGA), dual cameras with the rear-facing one at 3.2 megapixels, HD Video Playback, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and access to the Android Market and Samsung Apps platforms. To top it all off, the device will even feature a 1200mAh removable battery.
Keep in mind that this device is NOT the same as the Galaxy Player 50 (featured in this series of interactive ads), but a more powerful device. The Galaxy Player will be available in 8GB and 16GB variants and will be priced at 399,000 won (Rs. 16,100) and 449,000 Won (Rs. 18,400) respectively.
