Wireless communications provider Samsung has announced a variant of its popular Galaxy S smartphone, the Inquirer reports.
The manufacturer has taken the unusual step of launching the innovatively titled Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 Smart Player device at Mobile World Congress.
According to Samsung, the Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 Smart Player is being pitched as a contract free device that has extensive video and audio playback capabilities.
The device is able to play MPEG4, H264, DivX, XviD and WMV videos, in addition to MP3, WMA9, Ogg, Flac and AAC audio files out of the box.
There is, Samsung said, enough processing power in the 1GHz chip to play back HD 720p video at 30 FPS.
Samsung was founded in 1938 and is the world's largest private conglomerate by revenue.
Indeed, the Samsung Group accounts for more than 20 per cent of South Korea's total exports.
