Android for the masses: Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830, Gio S5660, Fit S5670 and Mini S5570 announced
Samsung has just unveiled no less than four new Galaxy Android smartphones: Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830, Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660, Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670, and Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570.
The new smartphones seem to run Android 2.2 and will be affordable. Samsung hopes that “the broader consumer market” will embrace them with the same excitement the high-end market has embraced the Galaxy S (sold in more than 10 million units worldwide).
Available in Russia as of now, the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 should appeal to “trendy and sociable young professionals.” As previously reported, the Galaxy Ace features a 3.5 inch HVGA display, Wi-Fi, ThinkFree document viewer, 5MP camera, and an 800MHz processor. The Ace will be soon launched across Europe, India and China.
Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660 also comes with an HVGA display, albeit a smaller one: only 3.2 inches. The Gio features Wi-Fi and social networking integration, and should be available soon in Europe, China and India.
Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670 comes with a 3.3 inch QVGA display, Wi-Fi, 5MP camera, and a 600MHz processor. It will be launched starting next month in Europe, India and South America.
Finally, we have the Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570, presented as “the perfect gift for smartphone rookies”. It features a 3.14 inch QVGA display, Wi-Fi, Quick Office document viewer, and a 600MHz processor. Europe, India and China are the markets where the Galaxy Mini will be launched.
Unsurprisingly, Samsung says that it will showcase the Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Mini, Galaxy Gio and Galaxy Fit at MWC 2011 in Barcelona. The new, high-end Samsung Galaxy S2 will also be unveiled there.
