Samsung is apparently trying to get an Android device on the market for every screen size ever theorized and they announced. Not exactly a media player, but a smartphone, Galaxy Player is hard to place in today's market. According to the latest information from SamMobile's insider that Samsung will soon announce the Galaxy Fonblet 5.8 (GT-I9152). The model number indicates that this device will have DUAL-SIM support and will also feature a 5.8″ Display, same as the one on the Galaxy Player 5.8. The Galaxy Fonblet 5.8 will come in Pure White colour. For Samsung white is the new black. We expect this device to run Android 4.1.2/4.2.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
And of course the nexus 7 that stormed the tablet world taking no prisoners with it's high specs and low price and is still considered by a number of online Reviewers to be the king of the hill for modestly priced tablets as it contains a full arsenal of features and does not imprison it's buyers into a padded cell like environment like some other OS do.
Even so, a 5.8-inch device is still more pocket-able than a 7-inch tablet, so the new Galaxy Player isn't necessarily doomed right away. I guess it will all depend on the price, which isn't yet known.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) tablet is due for a facelift after 12 months. The Google Nexus 7 or the latest Amazon Kindle Fire tablets are more powerful competitors that have eaten into its market share though it boasts a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and a TI OMAP 4 dual core processor.
Samsung have announced a limited edition Garnet Red Edition Galaxy Tab accompanied by a free case. The price has been dropped to $220 and will be available at Walmart, Amazon, Office Depot, TigerDirect and Toys R Us.
The tablet features a microSD card slot and a built-in IR port enabling you to use it as a remote control for your television.
It weighs about 12 ounces, measures about 0.4 inches thick, and features WiFi and Bluetooth. It runs on the Android Jelly Bean software.
A new tablet is coming up at Samsung's camp but it's not the 10.1-inch Full HD AMOLED device that it was originally planning to follow up S 4's release. Instead, an 8-in AMOLED tablet will most likely be launched in response to the iPad Mini and another 7-incher, the Google Nexus 7.
According to the source, this tablet will have a Full HD display at 1920 x 1200 pixels and is to be announced in IFA 2013 in Berlin. Samsung has delayed the bigger tablet to probably concentrate on the upcoming Note III and not let Apple and Google get away with the 7-inch market. It could also be the fact that Samsung is still developing the revolutionary AMOLED that self-adjusts according to the lighting condition and user comfort. A few more months to go and we'll already see these next exciting Samsung products.
According to SamMobile, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 going to have a 5.68-inch 1080p Full HD Super AMOLED touchscreen, a 1.8 GHz Samsung Exynos 5420 ‘octa-core' processor, 3 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), 16 / 32 / 64 GB of internal storage space, microSD card support, and a 3,200 mAh battery. It will apparently run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean from day one, but we already knew that.
As you can see, we're yet to have a clear picture of what the Galaxy Note 3 will have to offer, even though we see some of the same specs repeated over and over in new reports. The Galaxy Note 3 will be officially unveiled on September 4, during a special media event in Berlin, Germany.

We discovered that Samsung is focusing on a 12.2-inch form of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition it released with the Galaxy Note 3 in September. This bigger tablet, known as Galaxy Note Pro, could keep the majority of its more compact sibling's specs, and it is standout feature will clearly be that vast screen.
It's designed to launch worldwide at the begining of Feb, and today we're getting word that it'll reach the united states too. AT&T is the very first company to invest in selling the Galaxy Note Pro, based on the usually reliable person @evleaks.
It is also unclear just when the Galaxy Note Pro is going to be on AT&T store shelves, but we're presuming it will not be lengthy following the same tablet will get its worldwide unveil. Stay updated and we'll help you stay published though.
Galaxy Note Pro is rumored to sport a 12.2-inch 2,560×1,600 touch screen, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal space for storage, along with a 9,500 mAh battery. It will run Android 4.4 KitKat from the first day.
Competition is getting heavier in South Korean, Pantech, country's third largest handset maker, has officially announced it's first full HD smartphone, code name Vega No. 6, which was rumored about a week ago.
The Pantech Vega No. 6 is one of the largest smartphones, with display measures 5.9 inches. In addition, the handset comes with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, Pantech's own UI called Flux UX, LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, NFC, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 3,140 mAh battery, very big battery life.
Patech said its retail price will be 849,000 KRW, which's aournd $776 dollars. However, we aren't sure if it's going to be released outside of South Korea yet.
Before summer time this year, Samsung should unveil at least two Full HD devices: the Samsung Galaxy S4, and the Samsung Galaxy Note III.
Competition is always good for consumers, so we will keep a closer eye on this device.
The next awesome smartphone war will arguably be between Motorola X and Google's Nexus 5. Google plans to leave out making a bigger display for the Nexus 5 and according to a leak, it will actually sport a 4.5-inch display but it will be stretched out a bit more to take up 88% of the smartphone's face. Furthermore, it will not compete against 1080p Full HD devices that are mostly coming out this season but will actually settle with 720p.
It will have a 9MP camera and a better battery life. Google's aphorism for this phone includes "compactness, having a great camera and huge battery life". It will also use Snapdragon 600 1.5GHz and will no doubt be more budget-friendly than other Google Nexus devices. Its direct competitor, the Motorola X recently released information about its impressive hardware, which somehow makes this bit of news a bit weird. It could mean that a different unit might go head-on with Motorola X or that Google will not compete with it because it has a bigger stake in Motorola X than we previously thought.
