Cowon P1 Hi-Fi audio player launches in Russia


We leaked out the Cowon P1 audio player back in March and this week, the new Android device finally launched in Russia. The audio player which looks like a brick features a full metal body, 3.7 inch AMOLED display with 800 x 480 resolution, 1.2 Ghz Dual Core CPU, 128GB of storage which is expandable via a microSDXC slot and a 3000 mAh battery which will deliver 8 and half hours of video playback. With the massive battery, the P1 still remains a brick it weighs 173 grams and is 13.4 mm thick. Don’t forget that we are just talking about a device with 3.7 inch tiny display.


Of course, the main reason to buy the P1 is the support for 24-bit/192 KHz audio. Just like the other Cowon audio players, the P1 also offers tons of equalizer options with Jet Effect 7 and can playback the FLAC, WAV, DXD, DSD and other audio formats.


The Cowon Plenue 1 will start selling in Russia in July for a price (hold your breath) of 46.000 roubles(~1000€). You will also get a free leather case within your package. While that may sound a ridiculous price, it’s not more expensive than simillar devices from Sony and other brands.
