Also ahead of next weeks Mobile World Congress, Samsung today announced two new additions to the Galaxy range of Android smartphones: The Galaxy Ace 2, which will be available in UK from April, and the Galaxy mini 2, which will be available in France from March before being rolled out globally. Building on the market success of Galaxy Ace and Galaxy mini since their release last year, the new Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy mini 2 are ideal devices for users with active lifestyles who value individuality and style without compromising on performance or affordability. Originally launched in 2011, the Galaxy Ace and Galaxy mini are now getting upgraded features and services
The Galaxy Ace 2 delivers efficient multitasking, fast screen transitions and high-quality graphics for even the most demanding applications and games. HSPA 14.4 Mbps connectivity provides an enhanced browsing experience and fast content downloads with minimal lag-times. Additionally, 4 GB of internal storage ensures that films, photos and a whole array of personal multimedia content can be easily stored and taken out and about; a 1,500mAh battery adds to Galaxy Ace 2's on-the-go performance for active, demanding use.
Enhanced Samsung Hubs and ChatON services ensure that users are never far from the content or social connections they care about. Music Hub allows one-step access to over 17million tracks at anytime; Game Hub offers users the very latest gaming titles; Social Hub allows users to view their instant messages, social network and email communications all in one single inbox. Samsung's ChatON service connects users with other phone users - across any platform - into a single community, providing easy multi-format instant messaging and group chatting.
The Galaxy mini 2 packs a real performance punch into its slim and colorful 11.9mm-thick casing. The 3.27" HVGA touch-screen enables high-quality multimedia viewing while maintaining the device's portability. The compact Galaxy mini 2 ensures comfortable Web browsing and easily handles the demands of the most resource-intensive applications.
An improved 1,300mAh battery capacity also guarantees extended multimedia usage and longer chat sessions. 4GB of storage allows users to comfortably store videos, music and images.
Like Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy mini 2 keeps users connected through ChatON and Social Hub, while Music Hub allows one-step access to over 17million tracks at any time.
Both devices will be available from March and April respectively. Prices weren't announced today.
