Samsung’s Galaxy Player 5.8 Redefines Giant Screens

Aug 28, 2012

Did you think that the Galaxy Note was just too small? 5.3" of screen just wasn't enough, was it? No, you need something bigger. The Galaxy Note 2 having a rumored 5.5" screen? Still not enough. How about the new Galaxy Player 5.8, recently announced in Korea? It's got a 5.8" screen. It features a design inspired by the Samsung Galaxy S III, just bigger. Sadly, the resolution is only 960×540, so there's a definite drop in PPI. But those are the sacrifices that must be made when going after the biggest, baddest screen. There's no sacrifice of battery life, with a beefy 2500 mAh battery. It also boasts frontal stereo speakers, and in fact this thing's layout may make it optimal as a wifi phone. There's just no word of what's under the hood – sure, it might be able to handle video, but will gaming work well on it? And will the western world, hungry for giant screens, be able to get their hands on this thing soon? And I do mean hands because that screen size is big, yo.
