Samsung have been dominating the mobile industry with their super amazing Galaxy S II handset, and now look to be wanting to get the domination going in the low-end range, too. Enter codename 'Jena', aka Samsung Galaxy mini 2 S6500.

If the leaked picture with specs are correct, spec-wise, it should sit between two popular Samsung handsets: Galaxy Y and the Galaxy Ace. Specs have improved since its predecessor, the Galaxy mini S5570. We should be looking at a 3.3-inch screen with a higher resolution (HVGA), an 800MHz single-core processor, and 3GB of built-in storage.

 

Samsung's mini 2 S6500 should be cranking along with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, sports 3-megapixel camera, and 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity, which the original had. Design-wise, the mini 2 S6500 has rounded corners that the first mini sported, but looks like a smaller, rounded Galaxy S handset. The promo image leak points to the handset hitting in "February 2012", which should have it landing right in the time frame of the Mobile World Congress.
