Samsung unveils Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Mini 2
Another day, another pre-Mobile World Congress announcement – we're starting to wonder if there'll be anything we haven't seen already in Barcelona. This time, it's a pair of budget Samsung smarties that have slipped out of the gate early – the Galaxy Ace 2 and the Galaxy Mini 2.
Neither phone is going to trouble high-end smartphones like the iPhone 4S or the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, instead offering entry-level features for those on a budget.
The 3.8in Galaxy Ace 2 packs in a WVGA display, an 800MHz processor, a 5MP camera and front-facing VGA snapper along with 4GB of internal storage (expandable with a microSD card).
The Galaxy Mini 2, meanwhile, sports a 3.27in HVGA display together with a 3MP camera and the same 800MHz processor and 4GB of (microSD-expandable) internal memory.
Both phones arrive sporting Samsung's TouchWiz screen over Android 2.3 Gingerbread. You also get the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB 2.0 connectivity.
The Galaxy Mini 2 will hit France in March, with a wider release to follow. The Galaxy Ace 2 will arrive on UK shores in April, with pricing yet to be confirmed.
The Stuff.tv team will be hitting Barcelona to report from Mobile World Congress, so stay tuned for all the latest news from MWC.
