Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Mini 2 make a debut

To be honest, we’ve lost count of the number of smartphones that Samsung has announced in the recent past and we might just have to include new categories for these phones besides the usual mid and low budget, with mid-low budget, low-mid budget, mid-high budget and so on. The Galaxy Ace 2 seems like the higher end phone with a dual core processor, et al. The Mini 2 seems like a budget Android. The pricing or availability for India hasn’t been revealed as of now, which makes us ask, what price would you buy the Galaxy Ace 2 and the Mini 2 at?
