It looks like the Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 might soon be getting a low-end sibling.

The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 S6500--codenamed Jenna--could make its debut at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month, according to a leaked promotional image sent to GSMArena. The specs attached to the image shows some improvements over the original; the new device sports a bigger, 3.3-inch screen with higher resolution, a faster 800MHz processor, and 3GB of storage.

Along with rounded corners, the device will feature the same 3MP camera and 7.2 Mbps HSDPA connectivity as its predecessor. Another throwback is its operating system: the new smartphone will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

No word on a retail price, but the image reportedly includes a label that says "February 2012."

With HTC expected to offer seven phones this year running the new Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android, would you buy a phone that is expected to run the older version?
