Samsung announced the Galaxy Ace 3 back in June, but failed to provide any release date for the UK. However, late last week it was confirmed the phone would be out over the weekend, on 5 October to be exact. Now, the Galaxy Ace 3 may not have quite the same high-end spec sheet as the Galaxy Note 3, also recently released, but it’s sure to sell in big numbers just like its predecessors.
The Galaxy Ace 3 has 4G connectivity, which is only going to become more popular as the year goes on, so for a potentially reasonably priced phone to include it is welcome news. Sadly, the remainder of the spec sheet isn’t quite so exciting, but is still good for a budget phone. The screen measures 4-inches and has a 480×800 pixel resolution, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor can be found inside.
A 5-megapixel camera sits on the back of the Ace 3, and there’s 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, and an 1800mAh battery. There’s also the usual Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi Direct and GPS connectivity. Samsung has chosen Android 4.2 as the OS and there’s the usual array of Samsung apps and features installed, including Smart Stay, S Voice and S Translator.
Although the phone has been confirmed as being on sale in the UK, there’s no price for the phone just yet.
