Vodafone Smart Mini launched

Vodafone has launched its latest affordable smartphone, the Vodafone Smart Mini, which is available to buy now.

The compact smartphone is an entry-level handset that packs a 3.5-inch 320 x 480p HVGA Capacitive touch screen and a 1GHz processor.

Available later today on the UK network provider’s website, the Vodafone Smart Mini is being offered for just £50 on a Pay As You Go tariff. 

For anyone purchasing the Vodafone Smart Mini before the end of July, Vodafone is offering all-you-can-eat data for 30 days with the Freedom Freebee to make the most out of the new handset.

Vodafone Smart Mini Features
The Vodafone Smart Mini is a compact smartphone that measures 115 x 62.3 x 12.2mm dimensions, with a 3.5-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen display. The smartphone offers 320 x 480p screen resolutions, which isn’t exactly HD but for the price range is sufficient.

In the rear the entry-level smartphone packs a 2-megapixel camera with digital zoom, but lacks any front-facing camera for video-calling capabilities.

Running an unknown version of Android Jelly Bean, the Vodafone Smart Mini has a 1GHz MT6575 processor with 512GB.

With 4GB of built in storage, 2.4GB of that is available for use, but it is bolstered by a microSD card slot supporting memory cards up to 32GB.

Available in a black and white to begin with, Vodafone will also be offering the Smart Mini in pink for the girls.

The Vodafone Smart Mini will be available later today, or for something a little bit higher up the spec sheet, consumers can opt for the Vodafone Smart 3 that is £95 PAYG for a 4-inch display and 1GHz ARM A9 processor.
