Samsung Froyo phone surfaces

Not as small as conclusion-leapers think?

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Pictures of an upcoming Samsung Android 2.2-based smartphone, the S5830, have got numerous bloggers drooling over the notion of a "mini" version of the Galaxy S.

We're not convinced. Firstly, the Galaxy S' model number is I9000, not S-something, so we'd expect a smaller version of that phone to be the I-something.

Second, the Galaxy S measures 122 x 64 x 10mm, according to Samsung. The S5830's specs are not certain, but Chinese website Tenaa lists its size as 124 x 60 x 12mm, which is, to all intents and purposes, slightly bigger than the Galaxy S.

The leaked shots, from website Samfirmware.com, show a slightly chunky looking handset on a Samsung presentation stand - the phone will appear at next month's Mobile World Congress, the site claims.

Whatever, it's impossible to say from the snaps how big or small the S5830 is.

The handset is certainly real: it's listed on the Bluetooth website, which notes the phone's use of Bluetooth 3.0. ®
