Two new Samsung mobiles head to O2

Mobile phone network O2 has unveiled it’s to get two of the four new Samsung handsets that were announced before Mobile World Congress - the Samsung Galaxy Ace and the Samsung Galaxy mini phone.

Samsung’s Galaxy Ace is the replacement to the Galaxy Portal, where the mobile arrives with a 3.5-inch 320x480 HVGA capacitive touch screen, with an 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 mini supports 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 colour stripe along the side.

O2 has stated that the two Samsung mobile phones are ‘launching soon with something special’, although no details were furnished as to what that something special might be.

No details have been confirmed either as to what tariffs will accompany these handsets, although Carphone Warehouse is said to be carrying the Galaxy Mini on a £15.32 contract with 100 minutes and unlimited text messages.

One Mobile Ring has recently taken stock of the Samsung Galaxy Ace, where we published a walkthrough in pictures of this mobile phone that can be seen here.
