Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 portable Android media player is announced
Ladies and gents, introducing the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 – the latest Android-powered portable media player to join the company's portfolio. Just like the rest of the gang, it delivers the versatility and software variety of the Android platform with cellular connectivity being the only thing omitted.
As its name suggests, the display on the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 measures 4.2 inches in diagonal. It is of the IPS LCD kind and has a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels. The processor inside the device, namely a single-core chip clocked at 1GHz, may sound like something one would find under the hood of a last year's smartphone, but let's hope that it will go easy on the gizmo's 1,500 mAh battery. A pair of cameras is also on board – a 2-megapixel main one on the back, and a VGA camera on the front. We also need to mention that the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 sports built-in stereo speakers and a gyroscope for precise motion sensing. Last but not least, the device will be available in both 8- and 16-gigabyte flavors, which can be expanded further by using a microSD card of up to 32 gigs.
In terms of software, the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and comes with the company's ChatON instant messaging software pre-loaded. A couple of games have also been thrown in for good measure – Need For Speed Hot Pursuit and Fifa 2012.
Pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 are to be announced at a later date. Any takers?
