The Samsung Galaxy player, a media player that’s set to go against the iPod touch, made an appearance at the FCC yesterday. Pricing information or release date has yet to be announced by Samsung, but it is expected to launch sometime this spring.
The Samsung Galaxy player will come in two flavors: 4 and 5 inches. You can place the Galaxy Player somewhere in between the Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy S line of phones, without the 3G/4G radio, of course. It will run Android 2.2 and will be able to do almost everything an Android 2.2 capable device will do, with the exception of making calls.
Both Galaxy Players will feature a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 Hummingbird Processor, front and rear-facing cameras, WiFi, compatibility with Adobe Flash, HD video playback, 8GB of storage with expandable microSD storage up to 32GB and more. The only difference between the two models will be the screen size.
Since the device has made an appearance at the FCC, you can be sure that it’s on schedule to be released this spring as announced by Samsung.
