Well, how about that? It looks like good ol' Sammy has a trick up its sleeve that we didn't see during last week's MWC 2012 proceedings. Enter the Samsung Galaxy Player 70 Plus, the Korean-titan's first-ever dual-core PMP (portable media player).
This one reminds us of a cross between the 5-inch Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Player 50 which looks to be the predecessor. The Galaxy Player 70 Plus sports a 1GHz dual-core chip, a 5-megapixel camera, a 5-inch touchscreen, Android Gingerbread, and storage of either 16GB or 32GB. The Korea-only version has an added mobile TV tuner, probably for watching those Koreanovelas on the go. There's also a 2,500mAh battery that will provide the necessary juice for this baby.
We're a bit surprised with the Galaxy Player 70 Plus' arrival since Samsung has just also unveiled the gaming-minded Samsung Galaxy WiFi 4.2, another newcomer in its PMP brood. We're betting they're still at plugging the micro-niches in its offerings to make sure there's one for everyone (or at least know which markets to focus on). Anyway, there's no word yet on availability outside of Korea while pricing is pegged at $356 (about P15,200) for the 16GB version and $418 (about P17,900) for the 32GB model.
