samsung galaxy ace 4 and more

Samsung has pulled the wrappers off four new phones in the Galaxy range. Each one uses Google’s current Android KitKat software, although specs are kept pared back to entice budget punters.

Leading the line is the Galaxy Core II. This blower comes with a 4.5–inch, WVGA display, 4GB of storage (which mercifully can be boosted by microSD) and a five megapixel snapper.

The Galaxy Ace 4 keeps the flag flying for one of Sammy’s most popular budget devices. It has a smaller 4–inch screen, a similar five megapixel camera to the Galaxy Core II and comes in LTE and 3G variants. The former uses a 1.2GHz processor, while the latter is a touch slower at 1.0GHz.

The Galaxy Young 2 has an even smaller 3.5–inch screen and single core processor. There’s a three megapixel peeper and 4GB of storage (also expandable).

Bringing up the rear is the Galaxy Star 2. This comes with a 3.5–inch screen, two megapixel camera and a single core processor. It's very much aimed at smartphone first-timers.

Samsung has yet to reveal official prices or release dates for the devices.

But the inclusion of Android KitKat at least shows the Korean company is committed to bringing the latest software to even its cheapest handsets. And that's something to cheer about.
