In March of this year, Three’s lineup of products was leaked over the internet. There were a few who thought that the lineup was inaccurate. However, it did prove to be accurate despite a few dispelling the rumor. The list included the Nokia X7, the HTC Flyer, and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc, which eventually found its way to the network operator. However, there was one smartphone that did not make it to Three’s list of products. This was the Samsung Galaxy S2 Mini.
Let’s take a look at the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S2 Mini. The smartphone packs a 1.4 GHz processor, a 5 MP camera, and runs on the smartphone-optimized OS by Android, Gingerbread. This is strikingly similar to the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S Plus, which we heard about a few days back. Is this a simple case of mistaken identity?
Although the two smartphones share similar spec sheets, there are a few features that the two handsets do not share in common. An example is their displays. The S2 Mini sports a 3.7 inch touch screen, compared to the S Plus’ 4 inch touch screen.
Despite the discrepancies, this does not mean that it isn’t possible that Three will be including the Samsung Galaxy S Plus in its roster of products. Although Three was unwilling to comment on the said smartphone, Samsung did say that the S Plus was not going to be exclusive to Vodafone. This means that another network operator may have exclusive rights to the phone. The question is, which one? Could it be Three, or could it be someone else?
