Leaked images of the Galaxy S Mini, model number Samsung S5830, reveal a device that looks like a cross between a Galaxy S smartphone with Apple’s iPhone 4 down to the silver strip that runs around the sides of the Galaxy S Mini, reminiscent of the stainless steel antenna band around the iPhone.
According to Unwired View, the S5830 is expected to debut at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February, along with Samsung’s plans for a Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab successor.
The device is expected to launch with Android 2.2 Froyo, which may be stale to some power users as Google had launched Android 2.3 Gingerbread a few weeks ago. The device is expected to get a HVGA display, rather than the WVGA resolution of the larger Galaxy S, along with WiFi, Bluetooth, micro USB support, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, and micro SDHC storage card.
It’s unclear at this time, however, if the device will support Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays found on the original Galaxy S smartphones, a Super AMOLED Plus displays as found on more recent Samsung smartphones announced at CES, or if the device will utilize traditional LCD display or AMOLED display technology.
