Samsung has unveiled a new Android-based portable media player, which comes as the successor to the Galaxy Player 5.0 released last year. The new device is called Galaxy Player 70 Plus, and features a dual-core 1.0GHz processor, being Samsung’s first PMP to be powered by a dual-core CPU (and in case you’re wondering, the world’s first dual-core PMP is the Sony Walkman Z, introduced last year with Android Gingerbread on board, a 4.3 inch display, and up to 64GB of storage space).
The new Galaxy Player 70 Plus looks a lot like a slightly smaller Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone (sold in more than 2 million units until now). It runs Android Gingerbread, and further features a 5 inch WVGA display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM radio, 5MP rear camera, MicroSD card support, and a large 2,500 mAh battery.
The Player 70 Plus will be launched in South Korea in two versions: 16GB (priced at 399,000 won – about $357), and 32GB (priced at 469,000 won – about $420).
Samsung didn’t say when (or if) the Galaxy Player 70 Plus will be released in other markets. But it seemingly suggests that if you buy the device you’ll be as cool as the guys in the image above. And, hey, <sarcasm> who doesn’t want to be an Asian Justin Bieber? </sarcasm>
