Samsung Allegedly Prepping Second-Generation Galaxy Players with Jelly Bean

samsung-galaxy-playerThere’s not much point in owning a portable media player anymore when you can get the same functions and features, plus a considerable performance boost and voice calling support from smartphones, right?

Still, Apple’s iPods continue to be relatively popular, so it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Samsung is preparing a new line of PMPs as well. The second Galaxy Player generation could be unveiled very soon, and, like the first, it will probably feature several gadgets of different sizes.

One of the new family’s members has been very recently spotted in a benchmark, which has revealed a couple of its specs. There will apparently be Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on board of the device, probably plastered with some TouchWiz UI tweaks, while the display will boast a modest 800 x 480 pixels resolution.

Unfortunately, that’s about everything we “know” at the moment about the gizmo codenamed YP-GI2, but again, we’re guessing Samsung will intro at least three or four new Galaxy Players by the end of summer, with screen sizes ranging from 3.5 to 6 inches and uber-low price points. Anyone interested? Anyone at all?

    Hell yeah I’m interested. I refuse to pay the data plan fee’s for a smartphone. I’m already paying $60/month for a fast internet connection. I’m not going to pay another $30/phone.

    When my wife wanted a device that she could use at her business to take pictures, videos, and post to facebook, I bought her a Galaxy player 4.2. It works great for all of that and it also has a gps radio. I purchased Sygic (downloadable offline maps) and we love how well it works for a gps. I only wished I had bought myself one and now they are hard to find. I was hoping that Samsung was going to release a newer version and now it sounds like they are. I’m going to buy one for myself. Hopefully with a larger screen than my wife’s 4.2.
