Samsung doesn't look to be slowing down any time soon with their wide array of Android "Galaxy" named smartphones. Recently uncovered is the new Galaxy Mini 2, a follow up to the original Mini. It features similar low-end specs and will most definetaly come with a low-end or free on contract price too. More details below.

Rounding off the high end with the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note it looks like they are ready to focus on the other area's with the Galaxy S Advance and now the Mini 2. From the image above you should know almost everything you'd need. Packing a 3.3" HVGA display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a simple 800 Mhz single-core processor, and hey look at that -- 3GB of internal storage.

The biggest complaint about many low-end Samsung's including the original Mini was the terrible screen resolution. With this new Mini 2 it looks like they've stepped it up and will offer a slightly higher resolution HVGA display. It will also be equipped with a 3 megapixel rear camera and Samsung's TouchWiz UX over Gingerbread.

We've recently heard Samsung wont be announcing anything major or impressive at MWC 2012 this year, maybe we'll see this new Galaxy Mini 2 and the Advance at this years show. Stay tuned for more details.

    The Galaxy S has become one of the most popular smartphones in the world, with over 10 million units sold worldwide, and Samsung has decided to continue the line and get into other markets under the same Galaxy brand. For this year, besides the Galaxy S2 and Infuse 4G, they have planned the middle end Galaxy Ace and the new entry level Galaxy Mini.

    An affordable smartphone with a nice screenThe Galaxy Mini is supposed to be an affordable replacement for the hundreds of millions existing old-style cellphones (you know, with a numpad, small screen and all) and be easy to use by people who are new to the smartphone world, as well as have enough features to let them become more proficient with them and accommodate users who are already familiar with the iPhone, Android, Symbian and other full-fledged mobile operating systems.
    It has a small 3.14 inch display with a very small resolution of 320×240, which is made better by Android, but is still barely useable for more than an hour (try surfing the Web on it). Still, it is more than enough for people who come from those puny 1.8 inch displays (a lot of which aren’t even color) and it can also show 262,144 colors, which makes the picture look better than most 65,536 color smartphones out there (like the older HTC Magic and Hero, for example).
