Samsung outs Galaxy S WiFi 4.2

Samsung outs Galaxy S WiFi 4.2

Samsung is not done yet with the Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 mini-tablet or media player so they’ve added an even smaller one — the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 which, as you might have guessed it, measures 4.2 inches.

It’s no surprise that Samsung created another variant of their WiFi-only mini tablets and even though 4.2″ isn’t that much smaller than the 5.0″ they released last year in the Philippines (update: all in all, Samsung has a Galaxy S WiFi 3.6, 4.0 and 5.2 on top of the Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0).


Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 specs:
4.2″ IPS TFT display @ 480×800 pixels
1GHz single-core processor
512M RAM
8GB and 16GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD card
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0
USB 2.0
2MP rear camera
VGA front-facing camera
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The specs on the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 isn’t any impressive either. Single core, no ICS and a regular display screen.

Perhaps, Samsung isn’t targeting the various form factors but also making sure that they have a representative unit in all price categories. I expect the Galaxy S WiFi to be sold under Php10k, undercutting Apple’s iPod Touch and trying to take a good cut of the market share.

    “Galaxy S WiFi 3.6”

    How did I miss that?

    But seriously, Samsung should’ve outed some sort of dual-core PMP. Sony has the Walkman Z but the battery life is sort of abyssmal specially for its high price.

    Ipod touch is better than this one in IMO.

  6. martin says:

    this will have a good fight against iPod touch if they made it aluminum, making it look like a premium item. instead of light plastics

  7. JmBalicano says:

    I hate the hassle of iTunes despite the iPod Touch being a very nice PMP. Samsung should’ve brought their A game and given this a more premium build so that more people would even consider this over the iPod Touch.

    Im using also the wifi 5.0, and it is now available for gingerbread upgrade.. By the way, have used the ipod touch and this is nowhere close to the SGY wifi 5.0.. For better movie viewing and music experience, this one tops it all! XD

    Really? This hasn’t been officially released to the market yet. The ones released are the 3.x”, 4″ and 5″ models. I believe that these older models use a different cheapset and is not on GB out of the box so you can’t really compare it to this 4.2″ yet.
