The latest in Samsung’s affordable Galaxy Ace range is expected to arrive in June. This will be the third iteration of the Ace, a popular, budget-friendly Android smartphone. Samsung makes smaller and cheaper Android handsets but the Ace historically gravitates towards the £120 PAYG price point and is offered on budget contracts, it offers quite a step up from the cheapest Android options available.

Not the new Galaxy Ace 3

The new Galaxy Ace 3 brings to the masses a keenly priced smartphone with features almost on a par to Samsung’s 2011 flagship; the Galaxy S II, in both performance specifications and physical dimensions. Actually SamMobile notes that the Galaxy Ace 3 and the newish Galaxy S2 Plus share the same CPU/GPU combo. Being a new model the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 will have updated tech features to complement the basic underlying hardware; such as NFC and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 ‘GT-S7272’ specs

  • Display: 4-inch 800x480 display
  • Processor: Dual-core 1GHz Broadcom CPU, VideoCore IV GPU
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Storage: 4GB + microSD card slot
  • Software: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Samsung Nature UX 2.0
  • Cameras: 5MP camera on the rear with 720p video recording capabilities
  • Other: NFC

Please note that some of the above specs aren’t derived from the data in the benchmark results that were unearthed by TheDroidGuy but are expectations of the Android mobile obsessed blog. However, it’s definitely quite a step up in performance terms from the moderately well received Samsung Galaxy Ace 2.

Overall the device looks pretty nice for an entry level device which should sink to the normal historic Galaxy Ace series PAYG price region of under £150 pretty sharpish. SamMobile quotes rumours of a €300 launch price, which sounds like a lot too much and shouldn’t hold up for too long in the highly competitive smartphone market. It shouldn’t be too long until the official details come out and I will write up the official specs at that time.

So a 200MHz faster dual-core CPU and the same graphics as used on the Raspberry Pi (still outperforming the Ace 2's Mali 400 though), and 256MB extra RAM. Still, it's a step up, especially the operating system which is still stuck on Android 2.3 for many people.
I guess the upgrade to 1gb ram will make the biggest difference as historically the ace range has had small amounts of ram
I have the Ace 1 and its a good phone dont get me wrong but the lack of a dual core cpu, 300mb ram and 200mb built in storage is just not sufficient for me. Might look to upgrade if three let me but it all depends on the contract they can offer me and when the phone is actually released
wrong way round mate - 1gb ram and 3 extra gig of storage! Also the cpu and graphics in the ace 1 are very weak these days
factor in the jump to JB on the android side and I reckon it's a no brainer...

I should have said I was talking about the ace 1 not the new ace, the new ace looks great!
