Samsung has introduced two new Galaxy smartphones, both running Android (what else?), and both ready to hit the market in the next few months: Galaxy Ace 2, and Galaxy Mini 2.
Unlike the Ace Plus, which is just a modest upgrade to the original Galaxy Ace, the Ace 2 brings many enhanced features, including: a 3.8 inch WVGA display, HSDPA 14.4Mbps, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC (optional), ChatON, Samsung Hub, 800MHz dual-core processor (it’s the first time I’m seeing a dual-core CPU clocked at 800MHz), 768MB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,500 mAh battery.
The Galaxy Ace 2 measures 118.3 x 62.2 x 10.5 mm, runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and should be first available in the UK, starting April.
Also running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 features a 3.27 inch HVGA display, HSDPA 7.2Mbps, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC (optional), Samsung Hub, ChatON, 3MP rear camera, 800MHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,300 mAh battery.
Measuring 109.4 x 58.6 x 11.9 mm, the Galaxy Mini 2 should become available in March, first in France and then around the world.
Samsung didn’t say how much the Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Mini 2 would cost. But maybe we’ll find out more about this at MWC 2012 next week.
