Samsung Galaxy Player to become a phone with 5.8" screen, dubbed Galaxy Fonblet

0. phoneArena 18 Jan 2013, 07:50 posted on

It was bound to happen - Samsung might have decided that it makes sense to take the 5.8" Galaxy Player, and turn it into a phone. Granted, the resolution of said multimedia device is "just" qHD, and it is on the huge size, but given that folks got quickly used to a handset like the Note II with its 5.5" display, heck, why not try it out...
