Samsung presented six new digital audio players at the IFA 2005 show in Berlin. Ths includes the YH-J70, YH-J50, YP-D1, YP-T8, YP-F1 and YP-W3L MP3 players.

The YH-J70 has a 20/30GB HDD and features a 1.8-inch LCD display capable of playing MPEG4 movies and displaying images that can be directly transferred from a digital camera.

The YH-J50 is smaller and more portable with a 6/8GB HDD and a 1.5-inch LCD display. Just like the YH-J70 it is compatible with MP3, MPEG4, Ogg and WMA files.

The YP-D1 uses flash memory and will have a 20 hours playback time. One of its interesting features is a 2 megapixel integrated digital camera which sports 4x digital zoom. These pictures can be viewed directly on the 1.8-inch LCD display and the YP-D1 also has a FM radio, voice recording and even a built-in speaker.

Then there's the flash memory based YP-T8 which supports games. It has a 1.8-inch LCD display which can be used to play games or playback MPEG4 video files. It has a 20 hours playback time and has FM radio and voice recording capabilities as well.

The fashy YP-F1 uses flash memory and can be worn as a necklace or tie clip. It will be available in black or white and will feature three skin replacements. It has a negative LCD display as well as SRS WOW surround sound, FM radio, voice recording and a 10 hours playback time.

And finally there's the YP-W3L which is said to look like a Victorian pocket watch with a sapphire glass window. This player has 1GB flash memory to store more than 250 songs and features FM radio and voice recording as well. These functions are controlled through its simple and soft keypad.

Seems like Samsung is well on track with its plan to beat Apple's iPod lineup.
