Samsung has extended its range of budget smartphones with the Samsung Tocco Lite 2 officially unveiled ahead of MWC 2012.
The follow-on to the original Samsung Tocco Lite, a handset which shifted more than 30 million units worldwide, the Lite 2 is to come packing Samsung’s own operating system meaning that unlike many of its Sammy branded siblings, the device will not host access to the Android Market.
“Our range of Tocco devices have been among our best selling over the past few years,” said Simon Stanford, Samsung’s UK and Ireland Telecommunications and Networks Division head. “Thanks to the incredible response we’ve had to the original Tocco Lite and Tocco Icon handsets, we’re excited to now be offering our customers improved social networking and enhanced multimedia capabilities with the Tocco Lite 2.
“Our aim with this new handset is to build on the features we know our customers enjoy and find useful by providing greater synergy between their mobile handset and their social networks, and in doing so, giving them more ways to stay in touch with their friends and loved ones when they’re on the move.”
Whilst Samsung has yet to out an official price for the handset, a Samsung Tocco Lite 2 UK release date has been set for March 2012.
