Specs for the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 smartphone have leaked online, ahead of the phone-maker’s appearance at Mobile World Congress (MWC) later this month.
Unearthed by GSM Arena, which was tipped off by a reader, the handset packs an 800MHz processor, a 3.3-inch HVGA touchscreen with 480x360 resolution and 3GB of internal storage.
As you might expect for a phone that’ll be pitched firmly at the mid to lower end of the market, it’ll purportedly run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) out of the box, rather than the up-to-the-minute Ice Cream Sandwich version of Google’s OS.
A due date is anyone’s guess right now. But we rather fancy it could be one of the new product launches Samsung has promised will happen at the MWC technology expo that's taking place between February 27th and March 1st.
But even it does show, the Mini 2 is still fairly scant consolation to tech fans who had been anticipating an all-singing, all-dancing follow-up to the S2 to feature at the event.
Those dreams were, of course, torpedoed when Sammy recently announced its new flagship is being delayed until later this year.
News of Samsung’s plans come as the company announced a natty pink edition of the Galaxy Note is on the way, after strong sales for of tablet-smartphone hybrid make it apparent that the device has much wider appeal than initially presumed.
The cutesy version of the Note is likely to be aimed at the female market who, we've been assured, find tablets too unwieldy to carry around in their handbags.
