Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8 details and picture leaks

Samsung seems dead set on releasing a tablet or Galaxy Player in every size imaginable. Recently some new rumors have suggested they are prepping another odd sized 5.8-inch Samsung Galaxy Player -- or small tablet if you will. Today however we now have a detailed spec sheet and image of the device. A fine blend between their music players, and the Galaxy S III.

Sadly that huge 5.8-inch display doesn't come with the same impressive screen as their Galaxy Note or others, and instead will have a low qHD 960 x 540 resolution -- not even 720p. It's safe to assume this will be a mid-priced Galaxy Player to compete with the iPod. All the details can be spotted in the image above.

We are hearing from multiple sources the leaked image and details from Sammobile are accurate, and that Samsung could be showing this off at Samsung Unpacked later this month at IFA. Other specs for the Player include a 1.0 GHz dual-core processor -- probably TI -- 1GB of RAM, a large 2,500 mAh battery, and all running on android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

We do however love the front facing speakers, and were a huge fan of it on the Galaxy Player 4.2, and the new Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. Samsung already has a 2.8 (phone) and 3.6, 4, 4.2, and 5-inch Galaxy Players, and don't get me started on their tablet sizes. Between this and the upcoming Galaxy Note 2 at 5.5-inches it's safe to say they've covered all their bases -- whether we wanted them to or not. Either way the specs and design are quite nice, and hopefully this will come in at a good price to compete with other music players available today.

      Since you didn’t buy the 5.0, there’s probably a good reason why you wouldn’t get the 5.8 anyways. It’s seriously nearing mini-tablet territory as if 5.0 wasn’t already big enough for in-pocket media player standards.

    Interesting, but why not make this thing an S III in EVERY respect minus phone functionality? Same with their other players. Instead of the 4.0 and 4.2, they should’ve produced a Galaxy Player 4.5 that was the S II without the phone.

    I kinda want something just like this but smaller, and with better screen, but same processor and camera. Basically I want a 4.2 with upgraded processor&camera. Anyone have any suggestions? or know if they will make something like this? I want the 4.2 but the processor, memory and camera are lacking
