Samsung unveils four Android smartphones

Samsung has put an end to all these leaks of new smartphones by releasing a clutch of them on the same day. Four have been unveiled in fact, going by the names of the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Fit, Galaxy Gio and Galaxy Mini. Something for everyone - as long as you want a Samsung Android handset. Specifically an Android 2.2 smartphone.

Heading up the list is the Samsung Galaxy Ace. As we intimated earlier, it's an Android 2.2 handset (aka Android Froyo), which offers up a 3.5-inch, 320x480 HVGA, TFT-LCD display, an 800MHz processor, 2GB of storage (with a microSD slot to boost further), a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, an accelerometer, digital compass and proximity sensor. It also uses Samsung's TouchWiz UI as well.


The Three network has already announced it will be stocking the smartphone, with stock landing sometime in February. Fet your name down now if you want one.


If that doesn't float your boat, there's always the Galaxy mini, which is also an Android 2.2 smartphones. Not quite the same features though, with a 3.14-inch, 320x240 QVGA, TFT-LCD display, 600MHz processor, 3-megapixel camera, 2GB of storage (again, with that microSD slot), but similar connectivity to the handset above. That's down for March, with logic telling us that it is likely to come in a bit cheaper than the Ace.

Also coming in March is the Fit, which is pretty much a variation on the theme. Another Android 2.2 handset, this time with a 3.31-inch, 240x320 QVGA, TFT-LCD display, a 600MHz processor and a flash-free 5-megapixel camera. Last, but not least is the (you guessed it) Android 2.2-running Galaxy Gio. It's the most stylish of the bunch, but if you look under the glossy exterior, it's not a lot different, with its 3.2-inch HVGA display, 3-megapixel camera and 800Mhz chip. The Gio is said to be following in April.
