Samsung unveil four new additions to Galaxy family

Samsung show off four new handsets ahead of MWC 2011

Samsung has jumped the Mobile World Congress gun unveiling four new additions to its range of Galaxy branded handsets as the Ace, Fit, Gio and mini all become official.

Following on from the hugely successful Samsung Galaxy S, Sammy has announced four new devices that will adorn the Galaxy moniker, each of which will ship running Google’s Android 2.2, FroYo, Operating System and the company’s own Samsung TouchWiz UI.

Cream of the new crop of Galaxy smartphones is the Samsung Galaxy Ace, a 3.5-inch HVGA screen touting, 800MHz processor touting device that will come equipped with a 5-megapixel camera and a slightly iPhone 4-esque appearance. Joining the Ace with an 800MHz processor will be the Samsung Galaxy Gio which is set to sport a 3.2-inch HVGA display and 3-megapixel snapper.

Rounding out the four new additions, each with a 600MHz processor, are the Samsung Galaxy mini and the Samsung Galaxy Fit. Whilst the mini will target a first time smartphone market of “trendy and sociable youngsters” with its 3.14-inch display, 3-megapixel camera and “flashy colour stripe”, the Fit will attempt to attract both the social and business minded individual who has found tendancies for 5-megapixel cameras and 3.31-inch screens.

Set to be officially showcased early next month at MWC 2011 in Barcelona, the Galaxy Ace, Fit and mini have all been pegged with March UK arrivals ahead of the Gio which is sent to touch down in April. UK pricing for the four new handsets have yet to be revealed.

Attempting to widen the Galaxy brand past the high-end Galaxy S, Simon Stanford, Managing Director of Samsung Mobile UK and Ireland said: “With the Galaxy Family now offering a complete range of smartphones, combining excellent hardware technology and the latest operating system, as well as engaging interactive content, we firmly believe there is something for everyone, irrespective of whether it is their first smartphone or their fifth.”
