MWC: Samsung announces Galaxy S 4.2 media player
28 February 2012 | 0
It looks like Samsung is taking another swing at the media player market with its latest Android powered media player, the Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2. A follow up to the 4.0 and 5.0, the Galaxy S 4.2 is essentially and Android phone without the phone.
The Galaxy S 4.2 is running on a 1 GHz single-core processor and will ship with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Like its predecessors, the media player will support a variety of audio and video formats and will have full access to the Android Market and other Google services.
The 4.2" 480×800 resolution display will give some room to watch movies and play games, and you’ll be able to wirelessly stream content to and from the device using Samsung’s AllShare and Kies apps.
Samsung is pushing the idea of the Galaxy S 4.2 as a gaming machine, though the lack of a quad-core or even a dual-core processor means that the Galaxy S 4.2 might have trouble playing more graphically instense games down the road.
Pricing has yet to be confirmed.
