Samsung have gone back to their Ace and Mini Android smartphones today, revealing re-vamped versions with souped up specs called the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and Samsung Galaxy Mini 2. Both are entry-level devices, aimed at the cheaper end of the Android spectrum.
First, lets look at the Ace 2. It’s has a 3.8 inch, 800×480 display, running off an 800Mhz dual-core processor backed by 768MB of RAM. 4GB of internal memory is built in, expandable by 32GB with microSD cards and has 14.4Mbps HSDPA, Bluetooth 3, Wi-Fi b/g/n and sensors including GPS, optional NFC and a compass.
Measuring 62.2 x 118.3 x 10.5mm and weighing 122g, it runs Android 2.3 with a Samsung skin over the top, and also features a 5MP with flash, capable of shooting 720p, as well as a front facing camera.
The Mini 2 is slightly smaller at 109.4 x 58.6 x 11.6mm and 105.3g, but takes a knock to the specs too. It features a 3.27-inch display at a lower 480×320 pixel resolution, with an 800MHz processor and 512MB RAM, making it fairly slow by today’s standards.
It’s managing to squeeze in Android 2.3 with the Samsung TouchWiz UI, as well as 4GB of expandable storage, A-GPS and optional NFC.
Both will be available in the UK from April.
