Galaxy S Mini not My Name says Samsung Galaxy Ace

Posted on Jan 17 2011 - 8:35pm by Richard Sharp

Last week photos were leaked of what many thought was the Samsung Galaxy S Mini, the device that runs Android 2.2 is expected to be shown at next months Mobile World Congress but it won’t be using the name Galaxy S Mini. According to Dial2save the device will actually be called the Samsung Galaxy Ace.

Admittedly the Galaxy Ace (Samsung S5830) does look like a shrunken Galaxy S but the specs are different, the most obvious difference is the smaller 3.5 inch super AMOLED screen which is small by today’s Smartphone standards but that’s the idea. The device is said to be powered by a MSM7227 Qualcomm processor running Android 2.2 froyo, whether a quick upgrade to Gingerbread will occur is unknown at this point.

It is also known that the Galaxy Ace will include a 5 megapixel camera capable of filming 720p HD film as well as the standard Bluetooth and Wi-Fi offerings we have come to expect of the modern Smartphone.

The Galaxy Ace is expected to be released alongside another device called the Galaxy Europa, basically the Europa will offer a lower specification than the Ace but will also run Android 2.2.

We will have to wait until the 13th February for the official unveiling but don’t doubt that the Galaxy Ace will be a hit at MWC.
