Samsung announces 4 new phones

Samsung just took the wraps off of the newest additions to their Galaxy line of smartphones. They announced four new models in total, ranging from very inexpensive, entry level devices, to midrange devices. They're likely going to keep the Galaxy S (and upcoming Galaxy S2) as their high end device.

The new devices, pictured above, are the Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Fit, Galaxy Gio, and Galaxy Mini. The Ace is the most capable of the bunch with a 3.5" screen and an 800MHz processor, while they descend from there down to the Mini which has a small 3.2" screen and just a 600MHz processor.

Release dates and prices weren't given, as that will vary depending on country and carrier. These devices are likely going to be Europe and Asia phones, meaning those of us in the US may never see them. [via Engadget]

Nothing exciting at all here, and I'm honestly quite glad these won't be hitting the US. We don't need more super cheap Android phones, especially with so many of the high end ones uber-cheap or free on contract. Plus, if Samsung is so delayed in updating their flagship phone, how are they likely to treat these cheap ones?

Ryan pretty much said exactly what I was going to say. Stay far away from me, Galaxy phones.
