Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 launched as 4-inch mid-range handset

Samsung has added yet another handset to its bulging Galaxy line-up, with the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 formally unveiled as a 4-inch mid-range offering.

Entering the realms of reality just hours after images of the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 follow-on leaked, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 has been confirmed ahead of being showcased at the manufacturer’s upcoming June 20 Mobile event.

“Building on the success of the previous Galaxy Ace series, the Galaxy Ace 3 boasts powerful performance with a 1.2GHz dual core processor built to perform data-intensive tasks faster and more efficiently than its predecessor,” a Samsung spokesperson said.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 Features
Playing host to a 4-inch WVGA LCD display with a middling 800 x 480p resolution, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 features an average array of innards wrapped within a design that arcs back to the Samsung Galaxy S3. Although marginally larger than the 3.8-inch Galaxy Ace 2, the new Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 screen features the same resolution as the past model, suggesting images will benefit from no improvement.

Lining up at 10mm thick and 119.5g in weight, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 spec sees Google’s latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS alongside a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and an 1800mAh Lithium-Ion battery.

Again arcing back to its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 camera collection sees the same 5-megapixel rear-mounted offering from the Ace 2 make a reappearance alongside a VGA forward-facing snapper.

Set to be made available in 3G and 4G LTE forms, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 specs sheet is rounded off by the usual Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity options and 8GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 Release Date and Price
Although a Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 release date has yet to be confirmed, the handset is expected to line up at Samsung’s June 20 launch event later this month. A Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 price is also still awaiting confirmation.
