Because it's been at least six days since Samsung announced its last Android smartphone, here's the Galaxy Pocket -- an entry-level device in an extremely compact form factor, sporting a tiny 2.8-inch display. The Pocket runs on an 800MHz processor, just like the Galaxy Mini 2, though due to its diminutive size, screen resolution is limited to a stomach-churning 320x240 (QVGA). It's also got a 2MP rear camera, 3GB internal storage (expandable via microSD card), and a 1200mAh battery. The presence of HSPA support on 900MHz and 2100MHz only suggests the Galaxy Pocket won't be venturing too far outside of Europe.
On the software side, you get the standard blend of Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Samsung's TouchWiz UX layer. You probably won't want to hold your breath for an Ice Cream Sandwich update any time soon.
So it's very much an entry-level handset, and we'd expect that to be reflected in the price when this device launches later this year. Samsung has so far only confirmed that the Galaxy Pocket will be available in the UK, but we wouldn't be too surprised to see a wider European launch either.
