Samsung reveals its Galaxy Mini 2
Samsung has released the Galaxy Mini 2, a budget smartphone with 4GB of storage.
The Android Gingerbread device launched in stores including Orange and T-Mobile on 4 June and follows on from the original Galaxy Mini, which was released in 2011. The manufacturer described the Galaxy Mini 2 as a 'great social device'.
The entry-level handset features a 3.27-inch HVGA touch-screen and improved battery life.
Simon Stanford, VP of Samsung's UK & Ireland telecommunications and networks division, 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.'
