“Our latest addition to the Galaxy portfolio, the Galaxy Ace 3 is packed with loads of features designed to provide a smoother and more intuitive user experience”, said Simon Stanford, Vice President of IT and Mobile Division at Samsung UK and Ireland. “Following the success of the Galaxy Ace 2, we are confident that our customers will enjoy this new device when it hits the shelves this month.”

Available at first as an EE exclusive, the Galaxy Ace 3 will then be made available from selected retailers including Carphone Warehouse and Tesco.
