Last week, we gave news about Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 which hints the company’s interest on targeting the mid-end category of Android phones this year on European countries.
Today, everything goes official with the Mini 2 paired by another announcement on the arrival of Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. For those unaware, the first Galaxy Ace handset can be traced way back on 2010 characterized by its average build but with an afordable price. Well, it appears the Korean company is sticking with this strategy as its PR stated the new phone is equipped with a dual-core 800MHz CPU, HSDPA network support setting its download speed up to 14.4Mbps along with its decent 3.8-inch WVGA touchscreen display. Also, the phone has a 4GB internal storage (no mention about its expandable microSD slot), GPS, 1500mAh battery perfect for demanding users who’s always “on-the-go”, and of course, Samsung’s web of hubs (e.g: Music, games, etc) including ChatOn services so you won’t be left out with your social-networking circle.
However, eventhough the phone is powered by a dual-core chip, the company decided not to bless this one with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), instead, it will only ship with the one-year old Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) platform. So far, there’s no mention if Sammy has any plans of providing OTA update for users who wish to taper this lack.
Pricing of Galaxy Ace 2 is yet to be disclosed but it’s already confirmed to hit UK on April.
