Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Mini 2 Announced


Samsung’s phone lineup just keeps getting bigger and bigger.  The Korean company just announced two new Android phones, the Galaxy Ace 2 and the Galaxy Mini 2.

Don’t confuse the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 with the Galaxy Ace Plus.  They are two different handsets.  I originally thought that the Plus was the successor to the original Ace but it appears that the Galaxy Ace 2 is the real successor, with the Plus taking the classification of an update.

The Galaxy Ace 2 will have a dual-core processor with an 800MHz clock speed.  Being a dual-core phone, it should be great for multi-tasking and running graphics-heavy apps. The rest of the specs include a 3.8-inch display with 800 x 480 resolution, 768MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory (expandable via microSD), 5 megapixel rear camera with 720p video recording, a VGA front camera and 1,500mAh battery.  It offers a host of connectivity options including Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi Direct, and GPS/GLONASS.  The Galaxy Ace 2 will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, on the other hand, comes with an 800MHz processor and a 3.27-inch HVGA display with 480 x 320 resolution, a 3-megapixel rear camera, microSD slot, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory, 3 megapixel fixed-focus rear camera with VGA video recording, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with DLNA, A-GPS and 1,300mAh battery.  It will also run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The GALAXY Ace 2 will be available in the U.K. in April, and the GALAXY mini 2 will be available in France in March before being rolled out globally.   I will update this post as soon as I get details on pricing. is one of the most active tech sites in the Philippines.
