Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus boasts a 3.65 inch HVGA display with a 480 x 320 pixel resolution, runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and is powered by an upgraded 1GHz processor.
It features 512MB of RAM, 3GB storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB using a MicroSD card, and comes equipped with Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz interface.
Samsung promises that the upgraded processor, previously 800MHz, will deliver super-quick web browsing speeds and allow smoother multitasking between applications, which include Samsung’s Social Hub, Music Hub and ChatON services.
In addition to the processor upgrade, new features include the ability to reject calls with text messages and add unwanted callers to a black list log.
For added productivity, there is also ThinkFree, an optional tool that enables viewing and editing of Office documents, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDFs, while on the move.
"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," JK Shin, president of IT & mobile at Samsung, said in a statement announcing the new smartphone.
Though a release date has yet to be confirmed, the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus is expected to ship in March 2012. Pricing has yet to be announced.
