Samsung To Release Galaxy S Mini Handset at MWC

Samsung will apparently release a smaller version of the Galaxy S, called the S5830, at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2011.

The phone, which has been specced at samfirmware, will be the equivalent of the HTC Wildfire but for the Samsung Galaxy S range.

It is likely to be cheaper (the HTC Wildfire retails for around £150 in the UK), run on Android 2.2.1 (Froyo), come with a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen (the same as the Samsung Galaxy Player) with a resolution of 320x480 pixels.

The rest of the features includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, microSD card support plus a front facing camera. The S5830 will be able to record HD ready video footage.

Some have noticed that the handset looks a lot like the iPhone 4 albeit with more rounded edges and a bevelled front home button.
