Fitted with a 5.8-inch 960 x 540 LCD screen, the Player eclipses the size of the 4.8-inch display in Samsung's own Galaxy S3 smartphone.
Also by comparison, Apple's iPod Touch device sports only a 3.5-inch 960 x 640 LED-backlit LCD display.
According to Samsung Tomorrow (via Engadget), the Galaxy Player 5.8 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich overlaid with Samsung's TouchWiz user interface.
Korean firm Samsung expects that people will use the device to watch movies on the big screen, as well as browse the web, use apps, listen to music or read books.
It comes with either 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage, along with a microSD slot, a front VGA camera and a huge 2,500mAh battery.
Nothing further is known about the processor, price or exact release date. Samsung is expected to announce more details at the IFA 2012 event in Berlin later this week.
Samsung is also scheduled to announce its new Galaxy Note device at IFA on August 29, ushering in a successor to the multimillion selling smartphone/tablet hybrid.
The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to come with a better camera and a larger 5.5-inch display, along with the same stylus pen functionality.
