Samsung has sold 10 million Galaxy S Android phones – that’s a big success, and it’s understandable that the South Korean manufacturer wants to take advantage of the popular Galaxy brand name. Four new Galaxy handsets have been announced by Samsung: the Ace, Fit, Gio and Mini.

None of them are high-end devices, so they will come in more affordable packages, but one or two seem pretty promising nonetheless. Of these new Galaxy Android phones, the Ace is most similar to the big brother S, but it has a smaller screen with a lower resolution and a little less powerful CPU.

All of the new Galaxy phones have standard Android features such as aGPS, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, accelerometer, magnetometer and proximity sensors. Swype comes preinstalled, and the devices all run Android 2.2 with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top.
