Samsung lifts the lid on Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy mini 2

Samsung lifts the lid on Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy mini 2We're expecting lots of new kit to launch at Mobile World Congress, but just like last year it seems some people just can't wait and are showing off their new devices ahead of time.

The culprit in this case is Samsung, which has just officially unveiled the Galaxy Ace 2 and the Galaxy mini 2. Is there any point in Samsung going to MWC at all?

We were salivating at the prospect of the Galaxy S III getting its curtain call in Barcelona, but now it looks like being another month until that happens, which explained Samsung's decision not to schedule even a press conference at MWC.

But with the arrival of the entry-level Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy mini 2, we're left wondering if there will be any treats at all in Sammy's Barcelona biscuit tin.

As you'd expect from a pair of sequel devices, the new faces are reassuringly familiar from a design point of view, keeping to the standard Galaxy family look and feel.

The Galaxy Ace 2 features a dual-core 800MHz processor, a 3.8in WVGA screen, 4GB of internal storage and 1,500mAh of battery juice.

The Galaxy mini 2 is smaller (surprise!), boasting a 3.27in screen and smaller 1,300mAh, but otherwise a fairly similar feature set.

Both will only have Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board at first, but will no doubt get some ICS trickle-down later on in the year.

The Galaxy Ace 2 will debut in the UK in April, while the Galaxy 2 mini will launch next month in France, with a global rollout to follow.

We'll stop by Samsung's stand at Mobile World Congress next week to get a closer look.

Maybe they asked HTC for product advice ;).
