More images on the blog
I was emailed on Saturday a lot of new images of the M70 from Chuwi, its their first pictures of their M70, the monster MP4 player is confirmed to be using a LG made screen capable of support 800 x 480 screen resolution, this would be the first MP4 player to have such a large screen and high resolution combination. Although the Ainol V3000 was the first to have a high resolution screen, its 4.3? screen is dwarfed by this 7.0? screen.
Now its easy to debate if this should be still considered a portable media player, 7.0? of video mayhem may not be the easiest thing to lug around, in fact, they could double as a mini screen for your desk. It may be a bit strange for people to take this out on a bus or plane, it would be like whipping out a small TV and it would probably only conveniently fit into a clowns pant pockets.
Looking past this players size, the overall design is simple, quite similar to the V3000, even the button layout. There isn’t much more info yet on what particular hardware this player would be running on, i do hope its not the RK2708 chip, although the chip is quite good it still can’t really handle videos at 800×480 resolution, meaning you could never really fully utilize the screen whilst watching videos. However there is a new chip on the market, the V3000HD won’t be using a Rockchip and mjaybe this won’t either. Speculation is that the new V3000HD will be using the new Sunplus 8000 chip, which can handle 800×480 res videos very well (and infact handle well even higher res videos than that), maybe we could see the Sunplus 8000 also in this monster.
