Could Samsung already be working on a successor to its YP-K5 digital audio player? Folks on the rumor mill think so. According to a “reliable Korean source,” the guys at GenerationMP3 are reporting that the YP-K3 will be a speakerless, scaled-down version of the K5. Already given the ubiquitous “iPod Nano killer” title, the K3 will likely have the same features as its higher-numbered sibling and come equipped with at least 4GB of flash memory.
Only time will tell, of course, but we hope Samsung adds something new to the mix. Removing the one element that made the K5 unique and worth buying and then replacing it with nothing doesn’t sound like a good idea to us. In any case, stay tuned for more as it develops.
