Samsung Announces Dual-Core Galaxy Player 70 Plus Media Player

Samsung Galaxy Player 70 Plus

Samsung announced a slew of new devices at Mobile World Congress just last week, but it seems the Korean company hasn’t quite finished just yet. Today it has unveiled the Galaxy Player 70 Plus, a dual-core Android-powered personal media player.

The new device improves upon the Galaxy Player 70 released just under a year ago, and offers some pretty impressive specifications. In addition to that 1GHz dual-core processor, the device packs a large 5-inch display, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, and a 2,500 mAh battery. Those in Korea will also get a DMB TV tuner that will allow them to watch live TV on the go.

The device will be powered by the Android operating system and skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface.

That’s a nice list of internals for a personal media player. But it’s not going to be cheap. Prices start at 399,000 won (approx. $356) for the 16GB model, and rise to 469,000 won (approx. $418) for the 32GB model.

The Galaxy Player 70 Plus will be available this week in Korea, but Samsung is yet to announce when the device will begin its international rollout. I’m sure it will happen before Apple gets chance to add a dual-core chip to its iPod touch, however.

What do you think of the Galaxy Player 70 Plus?
