Samsung preparing to release Samsung Galaxy S Mini handset?

New images have leaked suggesting that Samsung is preparing to add a smaller and more robust version of its Galaxy S handset.

It’s the first time the handset, codenamed Samsung S5830, has emerged in photos but judging from the images it will compliment the already hugely successful range of Galaxy S smartphones and could possibly be referred to as the Samsung Galaxy S Mini.

The specifications are mostly unknown but it is said to sport a HVGA (480 x 320 pixels) screen, run Android 2.2 and feature Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, MicroUSB, 5MP camera, and MicroSD card support.

The device is expected to make an appearance at Mobile World Congress in February, alongside a number of 4G-enabled smartphones currently in development by the world’s most popular Android manufacturer.

Don’t expect this to be the last you see of this device before MWC, once a handset leaks, it doesn’t remain undercover for long.
