Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 leaked ahead of MWC
Last year, Samsung released the Galaxy Mini S5570, a solid option for those who wanted a Galaxy, but perhaps wanted something just a bit smaller–and significantly cheaper. Apparently, enough people were into it that Samsung is getting ready to release a successor.
GSM Arena picked up on a promotional image from Samsung, which not only reveals the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 S6500, it says that the phone will be released at some point this month. At what price point, we don’t know yet.
The listing doesn’t show the full specs of the phone, but it does show that the Galaxy Mini 2 has seen a few upgrades. It now sports a larger 3.3 inch screen, a higher resolution, and an 800MHz processor with 3GB of internal storage, which is a step up from its predecessor.
GSM Arena reports:
The mini 2 S6500 will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and keeps the 3MP camera and 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity from the original. Design-wise, the S6500 has the rounded corners of the first mini, but looks closer to a baby Galaxy S with that home button hump at the lower back.
The site figures that the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 will debut at the Mobile World Congress later this month, if not ahead of it.
