Samsung Galaxy mini 2 leaks out: bigger screen, better resolution, faster processor
The Samsung Galaxy mini 2 S6500, codenamed Jena, has leaked out just ahead of MWC and if we take the tipped February date as a clue, it should arrive just in time for the biggest phone-centric show this year. The Galaxy mini 2 is almost at the bottom of the Android low-end offers, still just above the cheapest Samsung Galaxy Y.

It won’t shock you with specs, of course, but it will most definitely do so with its price. 

Now, it does feature some pretty decent hardware for smartphone entrants on budget. Here are the highlights of the Galaxy mini 2:

Samsung Galaxy mini 2 leaks out: bigger screen, better resolution, faster processor
- 3.3-inch display with an HVGA resolution (480x320),
- Android Gingerbread,
- 800MHz processor,
- HSDPA 7.2Mbps,
- 3-megapixel camera,
- 3GB of internal storage,
- Samsung’s free messaging service ChatON.

Now, that’s actually a decent upgrade over the first-generation Galaxy mini which came with a smaller 3.14-inch display with a resolution of only 320x240 pixels, a slower, 600MHz processor, and only 160MB of internal memory. The free messaging with ChatON is also a welcome addition to help you save even more.

Designwise, the compact Galaxy mini 2 looks nicely curved with a slick body, though lacking the patterned back of the first Galaxy mini. Nonetheless, it’s a great upgrade, and we’re looking forward to an actual release date and a price. How do you like the Galaxy mini 2?

This is really big update compared to the V1.0. But lets see how it works, the current one is laggy and hangs frequently. This is my secondry model next to my arc s

Maybe? It won't be the fastest, but it's not like it's an HTC hero.....

With an 800 MHZ processor,it will most likely lag.

This phone may not set an spec sheets on fire but it will sell very well to its target market. The cheap and cheerful galaxy mini 1 sells by the bucketload at about 80 euro and we've had very little complaints so this will be a welcome new addition to that customer sector

Galaxy Mini should have Indian street price of less than Rs. 10,000.

People, why complain over a phone like this? If you are looking for an amazing phone, clearly this was not meant for you. This was meant for the people who don't feel the need to have a blazing fast phone, and to spend upwards of $200-$300 on it. Sometimes I feel that people will complain just to hear their whiny voices.
