When it comes to high-powered feature-heavy media players, one of the most well known devices is probably the iPod Touch. For those of us looking for a non-Apple alternative, there are certainly options out there, and this may soon include this very sexy, sleek 5.8-inch Samsung Media Player. If it proves to be the real deal, that is.

If you thought that the above photo was of the Samsung Galaxy S III, you are mistaken, though it’s an easy enough mistake to make. The high-end media player seems to be very similar to the S3, in a similar way that the iPod Touch is designed to look and feel like the iPhone. The redesigned media player was first tipped to SamMobile by an unnamed source. So what do you get with the media player? Besides the gorgeous 5.8-inch qHD display with a 540×860 resolution, there is also a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 3MP camera and the power of Android 4.0.4 ICS aboard the device.

While many of us are turning away from dedicated media players in favor of just using our phones, this could be a great device for dedicated use in a car, for a child or teen, or for those who simply like to keep their media needs and phone calls separately.

What do you think? Are you tempted by this new Samsung Media Player?
