Samsung is prepping a slimmed down version of its flagship phone for 2011 the Galaxy S2, it has emerged.
The hitherto unheard of Mini variant of the S2 cropped up on a handset roadmap for the 3 network, sourced by the lovely folk at Engadget. And with Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box, a five megapixel snapper and a secondary VGA camera for video calling, it looks like a more than worthy addition to the range.
Elsewhere, the S2 Mini will pack a 1.4GHz processor – compared with dual core beast housed on its big brother – and a smaller 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen. The S2, you’ll no doubt know already, features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED plus number.
The handset roadmap also included details of release dates for a host of the year’s most wanted tablets and smarties. The S2 Mini is landing in April, while the HTC Flyer Honeycomb-packing slate dropping in May.
But it’s June when the launch schedule gets into full swing, with the BlackBerry PlayBook, LG Optimus 3D and the Nokia X7, which was thought to be missing in action, all landing on contract plans.
