Samsung S5830 Premiering at MWC; Is a Galaxy S-Mini?
The last couple days have seen a spate of Samsung Android phones coming out of the woodwork: we’ve had the GT-i9023 show up at the FCC, as well as the revelation of the Forte / SCH-R910. You can add to that list the Samsung S5830, a petite-looking Android 2.2 handset.
The pictures were acquired by SamFirmware, which identifies the S5830 as some sort of Galaxy S-mini. It’s hard to get a good sense of scale from the photos, but by doing a little pixel-counting, it seems like this model has a height-to-width ratio of about 1.9, the same as the Galaxy S. So, if this is a miniature version of that Samsung model, it’s shrunken all over, not just cropped for height.
The tipster who leaked the pictures was nice enough to provide some rudimentary specifications on the phone. Supposedly, it will have a 5-megapixel camera taking 720p video, a 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD expansion – pretty much what we’ve come to expect from a smartphone at this point. There are no juicy details on anything like CPU speed or memory yet, but if this is indeed a Galaxy S-under-the-shrink-ray, look for similar numbers.
Samsung is reported to be planning on showing off the S5830 at the MWC.
