A little more than a year ago Samsung introduced the Galaxy Ace and the Galaxy mini phones — alongside the Galaxy Fit and the Galaxy Gio — and now the manufacturer, in the same pre-MWC way, is unveiling the follow-ups: Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy mini 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, pictured above, gets a more rounded shape than its predecessor, while packing an 800MHz dual-core processor, 3.8-inch WVGA screen, five-megapixel main camera with flash, VGA webcam, 768MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory (with a microSD expansion slot), Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Samsung’s own TouchWiz user interface on top of it.
The Samsung Galaxy mini 2, pictured below, also packs an 800MHz processor — single-core this time — and a smaller, 3.27-inch HVGA (320×480) screen in addition to a three-megapixel fixed-focus shooter, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory (with a microSD expansion slot), Android 2.3 Gingerbread on-board graced with TouchWiz UI on top of it.
As far as availability is concerned, the Galaxy Ace 2 will land in the UK starting April, and the Galaxy mini 2 will arrive to France in March before they’re both rolled out globally. No word on pricing just yet.
