Samsung has lifted the lid on a successor to its wallet-friendly Android smartphone, the Galaxy Ace.
Dubbed the Galaxy Ace Plus, the soon-come kit differs from its predecessor with the inclusion of a beefier 1GHz processor (up from 800MHz previously) and a slightly larger, but somewhat disappointingly lower-res, 3.65-inch HVGA screen.
Elsewhere, you’re looking at Android 2.3 with Sammy’s TouchWiz custom skin slathered attractively on top, a five-megapixel snapper with flash and HSDPA support for fast browsing.
JK Shin of President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, said: “In 2012, we will continue to make every effort to create an easy and fun mobile experience by expanding our incredibly popular GALAXY smartphone range, which is now one of the most recognized and successful mobile brands in the world.”
Sammy plans to introduce the revamped Ace in Russia this month, with a European rollout scheduled for later in the year.
The as-yet-unconfirmed Samsung Galaxy S3 is now expected to tip up at the Mobile World Congress tech expo in February.
