Remember the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8? Today we can confirm that Samsung will announce one of them for Europe. The only difference is that this time it’s NOT a media player, it is a smartphone! According to the latest information from our insider 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.

The Galaxy Player 5.8 which is only for sale in Korea uses a 5.8” TFT screen with qHD resolution display, 3 Megapixel camera, BT 4.0, couple of sensors and running on Android 4.0.

Picture Galaxy Player 5.8.
