Samsung will release a new Galaxy Ace-branded handset later this year, reports suggest, as the phone-maker marks out its territory in the low-cost smartphone market.
According to a source cited by SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 will feature a four-inch screen – up from the 3.8-inches of display acreage offered by its predecessor – and packs a five megapixel camera.
Running Jelly Bean, or more formally Android 4.2, out of the box, the handset is also purportedly home to 4 GB of internal storage, offers Bluetooth 4.0 support and is powered by a 1500 mAh battery.
Processing power is as yet unconfirmed, But SamMobile’s insider predicts it’ll pack a 1.2GHz dual-core number and that the Ace 3 will be available in Metallic Black, Metallic Blue, Pure White and Wine Red.
Details of Samsung’s plans for its handset line-up come amid signs that the April 26th release of the Galaxy S4 will be followed soon after by a more compact, cheaper take on its flagship, imaginatively titled the Galaxy S4 Mini.
