Leaked roadmap points to Samsung Galaxy S2 Mini

Presentation slides created by UK mobile outfit Three have been leaked and show that the firm is planning a number of unexpected releases this spring.

The roadmap graphics, which were unearthed by Engadget, show that Samsung will be launching the Samsung Galaxy S2 high-end smartphone in April this year.

The handset features a front-facing five megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen, 21 megabits per second HSPA+ connectivity and a 1.7GHz CPU.

It'll run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and include all of the GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi options you would expect on a top-tier smartphone.

The slides also point to May release for the HTC Flyer, while Nokia's much-anticipated X7, the LG Optimus 3D and the Wi-Fi-only BlackBerry Playbook should drop some time in June, alongside a raft of other iPad wannabes.

The documents also suggest that Three's marketing spend for the Galaxy Mini alone will be between £3 and £4 million, which in turn suggests they are planning to sell a cartload of units.
