Even though portable media players aren’t really popular right now, they still find takers in the market. If you are one of them, then you will be happy to know that Samsung, known mostly for its range of high-end televisions and smartphones, recently announced a new series of non-phone handsets titled Galaxy S Wi-Fi at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 held in Barcelona.
So what exactly does this range have to offer you? Well, for starters, the Galaxy S Wi-Fi series comes in three different models: 3.6, 4.2 and 5.0, each name corresponding to the size of the device.
Aimed mostly to rival the iPod Touch, these gadgets might just be the kind of media player you were looking for. To know more, read on.
- The 3.6-inch size is a new addition to the team. Sporting a 480 x 320 resolution, it is mostly aimed at budget-conscious buyers.
- The 4.2 inch Android device sports a WVGA 800 x 480 IPS TFT LCD display.
- Though the 5 inch personal media player (PMP) gives off a Galaxy Note vibe, it doesn’t completely match up to the latter’s best specs.
- All three devices will initially ship with the Gingerbread version of Android but will eventually get an upgrade to the Ice Cream version. Access to Google Mobile Services is also on the cards.
- The 4.2 inch model features a 1 GHz processor along with 512 MB of RAM. A rear 2 megapixel camera and a front-facing VGA camera for video calls seal the deal.
- All devices come with the following connectivity options: Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0 and Wi-Fi.
Even though there’s no official word on pricing as yet, the Galaxy S Wi-Fi line is expected to ship later this month.
