Last year we saw a Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 announced shortly before MWC 2011. Now, right before MWC 2012, we see a leaked version of another Galaxy S Mini. Likely the successor to last years model, info regarding the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 S6500 has been leaked.
I’ll just come out and say this up front, I am not a fan of these low-end handsets. My personal opinion includes the idea that these devices give Android a bad name. I won’t bore you with any more of my cynical viewpoint, so lets talk about device specs. This latest model is definitely an upgrade from last years model, but is quite under powered for a device being announced in 2012.
We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?
As you can see no HSPA+ and a 3MP camera make it the same as last years model. Sporting a larger screen than the original, we’ll see a 3.3″ HVGA display and a 800mhz single core CPU.
Maybe you’ve noticed, i’m not impressed. I can’t imagine using a large event like MWC 2012 to announce a device like this, but we should hear more in the coming weeks as the conference kicks off.
