We’re not sure what’s going on this year but all sorts of OEMs are announcing their wares ahead of Mobile World Congress. Samsung is the latest, though what they have to show off isn’t nearly as exciting as the Galaxy S III we once thought we’d see. Still, any new announcement are good announcements. They’ve officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is a 3.8 inch Gingerbread smartphone with an 800MHz processor. It features a 5 megapixel rear camera with 720p HD video recording, 4GB of internal storage, 768MB of RAM, WiFi N, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC and more. It weighs just 122 grams but its small build means it has to be a bit thicker than its Samsung Galaxy S/2 brethren coming in at 10.5mm.
The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 isn’t as powerful but it can hold its own. It features a 3.27 inch display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 3 megapixel camera, an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, WiFi N, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC radios and more.
Both devices will be available with and without NFC. As far as that availability goes, the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 will head to France in March while the Galaxy Ace 2 will be available in the UK starting this April. Both devices will also be available in the Netherlands in Q2 for 349 euros (Galaxy Ace 2) and 199 euros (Galaxy Mini 2).
