Has anyone seen or heard of this beast? I soooooo feel like a Sega noob for never hearing about this thing.

That's weird.  It has a Sega Genesis controller...and it doesn't look attractive to me.  Looks like a China model and if it is a cheaper alternative to pick up a Master System it might be worth looking into getting.  To answer your question...nope...never heard of it.

I'm pretty sure I have a Samsung Genesis controller (black) that I found a while ago.  If I remember correctly, Samsung licensed the Genesis for South Korea.  The controller I have is exactly the same as a Sega one...just the brand is different.

I would love to see that!

Yeah, due to politics, Samsung was in charge of Sega's stuff in North Korea.

The Master System was called the Samsung Super Gam*Boy (pictured is the Gam Boy 2)

The Game Gear was the Handy Gam*Boy

and the Genesis was the Super Aladdin Boy.

You can see them in this ad:

Wow!  The carts for the Korean Master System look like old 8-tracks.  I also like the controllers that their SMS got.  Interesting.

That Samsung SMS looks like it's for little kids thanks to its blue and purple colors.

It looks like it's related to the Sega Pico:

It really does!  Is the Samsung SMS NTSC or PAL?

In color palate I can see that but they are completely different animals all together. I had a chance to grab a Pico with a bunch of stuff for it for around $20 this past summer but passed. Missed opportunity.

That's what I was talking about, just the color scheme.

 

However, the Pico and Genesis both share the same CPU chip.
