An image, complete with detailed specs, has emerged of what is said to be Samsung’s latest media player. The device looks set to be unveiled at Samsung’s IFA event and could become the latest addition to the Galaxy family. 

The media player, codenamed Samsung YP-GP1, resembles the Samsung Galaxy S III, only this particular device won’t have the capacity to make phone calls or send and receive text messages.

The TFT LCD display is big, we mean really big, measuring 5.8-inches - the previous Samsung Galaxy media player sported a 4.2-inch display - and with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. As such it’s on the hefty side, weighing in at 223g. 

The Samsung YP-GP1 is said to run on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and will be powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor. 

The UI looks likely to be Samsung’s own TouchWiz, while the device is said to house 1GB of DDR2 memory, with the option of topping up to 32GB via a microSD card. The device is also said to house a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, VGA front-facing snapper, offer Bluetooth 4.0 support and an FM radio and be available in both black and white.

Samsung’s IFA event is due to take place on 29 August in Berlin, where the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 also looks set to be revealed.
