Another day, another pre-Mobile World Congress announcement – we're starting to wonder if there'll be anything we haven't seen already in Barcelona. This time, it's a pair of budget Samsung smarties that have slipped out of the gate early – the Galaxy Ace 2 and the Galaxy Mini 2.
Neither phone is going to trouble high-end smartphones like the iPhone 4S or the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, instead offering entry-level features for those on a budget.
The 3.8in Galaxy Ace 2 packs in a WVGA display, an 800MHz processor, a 5MP camera and front-facing VGA snapper along with 4GB of internal storage (expandable with a microSD card).
The Galaxy Mini 2, meanwhile, sports a 3.27in HVGA display together with a 3MP camera and the same 800MHz processor and 4GB of (microSD-expandable) internal memory.
Both phones arrive sporting Samsung's TouchWiz screen over Android 2.3 Gingerbread. You also get the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB 2.0 connectivity.
The Galaxy Mini 2 will hit France in March, with a wider release to follow. The Galaxy Ace 2 will arrive on UK shores in April, with pricing yet to be confirmed.
