In the day and age when the latest version of the Android operating system is becoming available only to high-end users, Samsung has launched its new Samsung Galaxy Mini, which will be bringing the latest Android operating system to a more affordable class of people. This is expected to be reflecting the success of the Samsung Galaxy S, which has been the well-received phone in the recent years. As a result, it will be incorporating a number of features that will be taken from the Samsung Galaxy S, which will in no doubt help in the success of the Samsung Galaxy Mini.
The Samsung Galaxy Mini exactly reflects its name by using a touch screen display that measures only 3.15 inches in size. This is in sharp contrast to the 4 inch touch screen display that is being used in the Samsung Galaxy S. It is not only in the size that the screen is downgraded, but it is also in the technology stakes as well. This is because while the Samsung Galaxy S will be using the super AMOLED display technology to show off the brilliance of the Android 2.2 operating system, the Samsung Galaxy Mini will be having the normal TFT display technology for showing off the same Android 2.2 operating system. The difference between the two screens also extends to the resolution because the Samsung Galaxy Mini will be supporting only 240 x 320 pixels.
The phone will be having quite a lot of other technologies, which is not going to be seen in the touch screen display. Some of these will include the likes of the DNSe sound enhancement option, which brings a new life into the phones loudspeakers that would have otherwise been not good. The 3.15 megapixel camera in the form might not have a lot of features, but it does have the Geotagging option. The lack of other options might not hamper the quality of the camera and it still can take quality images. The only thing is that the quality of the photo will not only be dependent on the camera, but also on the photographer as well. Video recording option is present in the camera like most mobile phones and it can record at the QVGA resolution at 15 frames per second.
The use of the 600 MHz processor in the Samsung Galaxy Mini has meant that it will be capable of running the Android 2.2 operating system. It is not known whether this phone will be capable of supporting the latest 2.3 version of Android, but there is a feeling that most users will be happy with the results of the Android 2.2. This is because there are plenty of phones available today in this segment that still run on the Android 1.6 operating system. So, in comparison with them, the Samsung Galaxy Mini looks to be highly rich in features. The phone has been officially announced by Samsung and it will be launched around April time in the UK.
