Samsung plans smart device blitz for Mobile World Congress

Samsung Electronics said yesterday it will showcase a new lineup of its low-priced smartphones at the mobile industry’s largest trade show, slated for later this month.

The company said it will put on display its 3.8-inch Galaxy Ace 2 and 3.3-inch Galaxy Mini 2 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), the world’s largest trade fair in the mobile industry. The show will be held from Monday to March 1 in Barcelona, Spain.

Samsung said the new lineup of low-priced smartphones will be equipped with faster application processors and improved cameras, both of which are powered by Android-based operating systems.

Their predecessors are priced at around $150 to $200, with the company undecided on when the devices will reach the market.

But it said it will not unveil its much-awaited premium smartphone, the Galaxy S3, at the MWC, disappointing those hoping to see a successor to the Galaxy S2, which has sold more than 10 million units so far. Instead, Samsung will showcase its Galaxy Note 10.1, which combines the strengths of a smartphone with that of a tablet computer. Yonhap
