Samsung announces four new Android phones

Consumer electronics giant Samsung has unveiled four new handsets that come under their Galaxy range; the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Samsung Galaxy Fit, Samsung Galaxy Gio and the Samsung Galaxy mini phone.

We brought news of the Galaxy Ace just last week, where it’s seen as a replacement to the Samsung Galaxy Portal. The Ace arrives with a 3.5-inch 320x480 HVGA capacitive touch screen, with a 800MHz processor, a 5 megapixel camera with a flash and a 2GB microSD card, whilst running from Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2 with their TouchWiz UI.

The Samsung Galaxy Fit arrives with a 3.31-inch 240x320 QVGA screen, running from a 600MHz CPU, with a 5 MP camera and with the Android ‘Froyo’ OS as well. This mobile comes across with more of a business look and feel, with an appearance that’s close to a cut down HTC Desire.

Samsung’s Galaxy Gio is accompanied by a 3.2-inch 320x480 HVGA display, with an 800Mhz processor, a 3 megapixel camera with enhanced social networking capabilities.

The Samsung GALAXY mini will be sporting a 3.14-inch 320x240 QVGA screen, with a 600Mhz CPU, a 3 MP camera and is squarely aimed at trendy and sociable youngsters, with a flashy color stripe along the side.

All the new Samsung mobile phones are in the midrange series of handsets, where they’re said to be arriving during March after their official outing at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona – with the Gio arriving in April.
