Right ahead of the MWC 2012 show in Barcelona, Samsung have thrown down their new Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Mini 2 smartphones.
Galaxy Ace 2
Compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Ace 2 ups the screen to a bigger 3.8-inch display with a higher 480 x 800 resolution, while inside lurks a beefed up 800MHz dual-core processor backed by 768MB of RAM.
Running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), the Galaxy Ace 2 comes with the same 5MP camera with LED flash and introduces 720p video recording.
There’s heaps o’joy inside too, with internal storage being cranked up to a very healthy 4GB – a massive jump up from the paltry 158MB on the Galaxy Ace. There’s also more storage options available thanks to the microSD card slot.
Galaxy Mini 2
Samsung’s cheapo, entry-level handset has also seen an upgrade, with the Galaxy Mini being replaced by the Galaxy Mini 2.
This sees the screen size swell slightly to a 3.27-inch screen number, offering a modest a 320 x 480 resolution, with the battery boosted to a 1,300mAh number.
Measuring a reasonably lithe 11.9mm thick, there’s a 3-megapixel camera on the back, and – like the Ace 2 – will come preloaded with Samsung’s Social Hub, Games Hub, Music Hub and ChatON apps.
Inside the Android 2.3 smartphone saunters a single-core 800MHz processor, while the Mini 2 also enjoys an upgrade to a generous 4GB of internal storage.
Both phones will be out in the UK in April, with pricing firmly set to the budget end of things.
