A Mini 2 to migrate you (okay, your Mum) from dumb to smart? That's just what Samsung intends to do as it makes the 3.27-inch Galaxy phone available across the UK this week. The wee Gingerbread handset, sporting a colorful sunny yellow plastic backing, is dressed to impress, but that's because this low-ender doesn't fuss with the specs. Under that cheerful casing lies a single-core 800MHz CPU, 512MB RAM, 4GB of storage and a 1,300mAh battery that should prove adequate for this pocket-sized affair. The company's certainly wary of how this slight fella might be perceived, so it's gone above and beyond the call of PR duty (see below) to make sure the world knows this is a phone for first-timers. We gave it a go back at MWC earlier this year and, despite its compact look and budget bearings, were please to note it packs just enough of a surprising performance punch. Hit up the break to peruse the self-conscious presser for yourself.
SAMSUNG GALAXY MINI 2 UK LAUNCH DATE REVEALED
Latest addition to the Galaxy stable to hit shops early June
6th June 2012, London, UK – Samsung has today announced that the Galaxy Mini 2, the successor to last year's Galaxy Mini and a stylish, affordable addition to Samsung's Galaxy range, will be available in UK stores from 4th June.
Simon Stanford, Vice President UK & IRE Telecommunications & Networks Division, Samsung said: "We've had a good response to the Galaxy Mini since it launched last year, particularly among the 'first smartphone generation.' Smartphone growth is continuing at pace this year, and not just at the premium end of the market. Handsets such as the Galaxy Mini 2 are needed to meet the growing demand for more affordable devices for customers on the lookout for their first smartphone."
The super-slim Galaxy Mini 2 measures at just 11.9mm, and with its colourful casing, it's great for anyone on the lookout for an easy-to-use pocket-size device. Complete with access to Samsung's ChatON and Hubs services, the Galaxy Mini 2 is a great social device and makes it easy to keep in touch with friends and family.
