A new version of Samsung’s Galaxy Ace smartphone has been leaked. Named the Galaxy Ace 3, the phone has appeared a little over a week before Samsung holds a major event in London, where it’ll not only show its recently announced hardware, such as the Galaxy S4 Mini and S4 Active, but we’re also expecting a range of ATIV-branded products.
The leak, courtesy of Samsung fan site SamMobile, gives the Ace 3 the model number of GT-S7270, and provides a low-res image to go along with an almost complete spec list. Samsung has stuck with its winning Galaxy S4 design formula, and the Ace 3 has a similar shape to the Android flagship phone. It’s supposed to come in several colours, including black, white and red.
If the information proves correct, the Ace 3 should have a 4-inch touchscreen with a 480×800 pixel resolution, which is the same as the Ace 2, only the display is 0.2 inches larger. The processor may also be given a modest bump, as it’s said to be a dual-core, 1GHz chip, with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage memory.
The camera will probably stay the same as the Ace 2, with 5 megapixels, plus there will be a basic VGA video call camera above the screen. Samsung will install Android 4.2 as standard, along with a selection of its latest software features introduced with the Galaxy S4.
The Galaxy Ace series is important to Samsung, thanks to their modest prices and cool looks, and have been big sellers in the past. If the Galaxy Ace 3 is just about ready for its debut, expect it to be at least shown off on 20 June, and perhaps even revealed before the big day.
