Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 details leak online

Details surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 have leaked online, revealing that the low-end handset could be in the works over at Samsung HQ.

Due to replace the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and original Samsung Galaxy Ace, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 has appeared on GL Benchmarks with a small collection of specs.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 could ship with a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM and is currently using the model number of GT-S7272.

Although an actual screen size is currently unknown, it should be bigger than the 3.5-inch display of the Samsung Galaxy Ace and 3.8-inch Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. The benchmarks did reveal it would have a screen resolution of 800 x 480p.

Running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 could have a 5-megapixel camera in the rear capable of recording 720p video.

The only other feature seemingly confirmed by the benchmarks is the presence of NFC technology.

Samsung has a jam-packed mobile device launch schedule for this year, but the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 should launch at some point.

The South Korean electronics manufacturer has already launched its flagship smartphone, with the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date set for April 26.

Also recently unveiled were the huge Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8 handsets, more akin to tablets than smartphones due to their gigantic screen sizes.

Samsung has yet to comment on the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, and the leaked benchmarks could easily be fake. However, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 was released in February last year and could do with a refresh.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 was rumoured to launch at IFA 2013 earlier this month, tipped to launch with a 4-inch AMOLED display and four metallic colour variations: black, white, wine red and blue.
