There’s no doubt that Samsung’s range of budget Ace phones have become quite the success with younger people and others trying to get into the smartphone era without forking out tons of money each month. To add to the already successful range of affordable handsets Samsung have today announced the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is a little bigger than the previous handsets in the Ace range with a 4-inch WVGA screen, it also packs a punch compared to the other two devices with a 1Ghz dual-core processor complete with 1GB RAM. It’s well known that the Ace series aren’t exactly packed with memory and Samsung haven’t changed that with the Ace 3 coming with 4GB of internal memory with only around 2GB available to the user. The good news however is that it has a microSD slot which supports cards upto 64GB!
The device comes with a 5-megapixel rear snapper with a VGA front facing camera. To make photo taking a little easier it also comes with Samsung’s Sound & Shot, Best Shot, and Best Photo camera features.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 will also come with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) as well as the latest collection of Samsung apps such as the S Translator, S Travel, Smart Stay, S Voice, and Easy Mode. Depending on the market the Ace 3 is expected to come with either 3G or LTE capabilites which would make it one of the first entry level handsets to come with LTE capabilities. There’s also plan for a dual SIM version of the handset to be launched too.
It’s not exactly the most exciting handset to be released recently, but it shows that Samsung are still keeping a close eye on the emerging markets and those that perhaps can’t afford handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S 4.
The UK is expecting to see the LTE version, but in terms of release date no details have been announced.
