Feb 21, 2012

Two new handsets introduced to Samsung`s Galaxy smartphone range

Samsung Electronics today announced two new additions to its Galaxy smartphone range; both the Galaxy Ace 2 and the Galaxy Mini 2 which will be available in UK from April. Building on the success of their predecessors, the Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Mini 2 are ideal for people that enjoy an active lifestyle who want a handset that's both stylish and affordable but is also packed full of great features.
Simon Stanford, UK & IRE Telecommunications & Networks Division said: "The Galaxy Ace and Galaxy Mini have both been hugely successful handsets for us since they launched last year so we're excited to be bringing our customers refreshed versions of both devices. Anyone who buys one of these new devices will benefit from even more functionality, including improved processing speeds so they can quickly connect to and browse the internet when they're out shopping, travelling to work or out with friends. Both devices join our existing Galaxy Family of smartphones again reinforcing our commitment to providing a smartphone for everyone."
Galaxy Ace 2
The Galaxy Ace 2 enables our customers to enjoy efficient multi-tasking, screen transitions and graphics for various applications and games. HSPA 14.4 connectivity enhances the browsing performance and lets owners download content quickly and with minimal lag-times.
4GB of internal storage means that films, photos and a huge range of personal multimedia content can be easily stored, viewed and shared whilst out and about. Whilst a 1500mAh battery means owners of the Galaxy Ace 2 can spend hours using the device whenever they are on the go.
Enhanced Samsung Hubs and ChatON services give our customers access to the content and social connections they need irrespective of where they are. The Music Hub gives them access to over 13 million tracks at anytime; the Game Hub lets them enjoy all the very latest games; the Social Hub allows them to view their instant messages, social network and email communications all from one place. And lastly, Samsung's ChatON service allows them to connect with and chat to friends, colleagues and family members using mobile handsets across any platform.
Galaxy Mini 2
The stylish Galaxy Mini 2 is super-slim measuring just 11.9mm and is packed into a funky colourful casing. A 3.27" HVGA touch-screen means people can view high quality multimedia from their mobile phone.
An improved 1300mAh battery capacity guarantees extended multimedia usage and longer chat sessions, whilst 4GB of storage means our customers can store a wealth of videos, music and images without having to delete old content.
Similarly to the Galaxy Ace 2, the Galaxy Mini 2 comes complete with access to Samsung's ChatON and Hubs services.
