This is the all-new Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, the Korean manufacturer’s second generation Galaxy Mini handset.
A lowbrow blower, it has nothing on the Galaxy S3 but still offers an exciting batch of features for a not so knockout price.
Simon Stanford, Vice President UK & IRE Telecommunications & Networks Division, Samsung said:
“We’ve had a good response to the Galaxy Mini since it launched last year, particularly among the ‘first smartphone generation.’
“Smartphone growth is continuing at pace this year, and not just at the premium end of the market.
“Handsets such as the Galaxy Mini 2 are needed to meet the growing demand for more affordable devices for customers on the lookout for their first smartphone.”
Samsung Galaxy Mini 2: Features
Billed as a budget blower, the Mini 2 is super slim (11.9mm thick) and comes loaded with a 3.27-inch HVGA touchscreen running Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.
Along with a stylish yellow backside, there’s 4GB of storage on board, giving you plenty of space to stash photos, videos and your favourite tracks.
There’s also a modest rear-mounted 3-megapixel camera to help you capture life’s precious moments.
In terms of services, the Mini 2 keeps users connected through ChatON and Social Hub, and also host Music Hub – an iTunes-like service from Samsung which boasts over 17m tunes.
Samsung Galaxy Mini 2: Release Date
Samsung’s Mini 2 is available in UK stores now for a wallet-friendly £149.99. It’s not the most high-spec phone on the market, but for a penny shy of £150 quid, it’s a bargain.
