Samsung is about to further muddle the ever-less distinct division between tablets, smartphones and media players with a new 5.8-inch-screen-toting device for Europe, rumours suggest.
Citing an anonymous insider, Sam Mobile reports that Samsung is about to lift the lid on a smartphone-tablet halfway house dibbed the Fonblet 5.8. Essentially a rebranded version of the S.Korea-only Galaxy Player, this will feature Dual SIM support and is likely to run Android 4.1.2/4.2.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
Assuming the spec sheet remains the same as the Player, it’s also likely to pack a three-megapixel camera sans flash, a 2500 mAh battery and come in 16GB and 32GB variants with the option to add a microSD card and boost storage by a further 32GB.
Signs of a new Samsung challenger come amid what’s reports suggest is shaping up to be a busy year for the phone-maker.
This quarter is expected to see the arrival of an all-new flagship phone in the shape of the Samsung Galaxy S4, while the tail end of the year will purportedly be marked by a fresh iteration of the Galaxy Note.
