It seems like the Korean tech giant Samsung knows how to keep its users busy with its devices. After unleashing its hugely-popular Galaxy S3 smartphone, the company is looking to capture the market with the launch of its Android-based multimedia player - the Galaxy Player 5.8.
Samsung started the year on a positive note with the launch of its flagship Galaxy S3 smartphone. The Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet followed suit and by the end of this month the next-generation Galaxy Note, dubbed the Galaxy Note 2, is also expected to make its debut.

However, it seems that Samsung does not want to lose the momentum it has gained over the past several months and, therefore, when the company should enjoy the worldwide success of its S3 smartphone and prepare for Galaxy Note 2's launch, it has reportedly launched an Android-based multimedia player. On Aug. 27, Samsung's Web site reported (translated) the launch of the Galaxy Player 5.8.
Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8, the latest Android multimedia player comes with 5.8-inch qHD 960x540p display, Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) OS layered with Samsung's own WhizTouch interface, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, 2500mAh battery, 16/32GB internal storage options, microSD slot, and a front-facing VGA camera. The latest Samsung device measures 165 x 85 x 10.8mm and weighs 221gms.
Samsung has also packed in the AllShare Play streaming support and its own Chat messenger service.
Information regarding the processor, pricing, and release date of Galaxy Player 5.8 is currently not available. IFA 2012, however, is around the corner and Samsung may unleash the multimedia player at the event.
