Samsung has taken the wraps off a quartet of smartphones ahead of next month's Mobile World Congress show, the usual launch pad for handsets this time of year.

All four Galaxy-branded phones - the Ace, Mini, Fit and Gio - run Android 2.2 Froyo and sport all the usual accoutrements of modern smartphones, including 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, GPS, and dual-band HSPA 3G connectivity.

The handsets tend toward the budget end of the market: they sport 3-5Mp cameras, and screen resolutions range from 240 x 320 - Fit and Mini - to 320 x 480 for the other two.
