Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is going to be available in UK stores starting tomorrow, four months after it was announced. This entry-level smartphone enjoyed a very good welcome in Europe, and that can be seen from the sales numbers of its predecessors, the Ace 2 and initial Ace. The first shop where you could buy it tomorrow will be EE followed by Carphone Warehouse, Tesco and other “selected retailers” as Samsung announced us. Even if Galaxy Ace 3 is capable of holding two SIM cards, it seems like Samsung bought mono SIM version in UK, and there is no word about a later addition for the Dual SIM edition.
Galaxy Ace 3 is a 4G compatible smartphone running on Android 4.2 Jelly bean and powered by a 1.2 GHz dual core processor. It has 1 GB of RAM memory and a 4 inch LCD display at 800 x 480 resolution. For the picture/video aspect, Ace has both front facing and rear cameras, the front one is a 0.3 MP VGA while the rear one is a 5 MP with LED Flash, as for the internal memory it can get as high as 72 GB, if you add a 64 GB microSD card near the stock 8GB ( with only 5 GB to store ) internal memory. The specs are quite poor, but as I mentioned above, its predecessors enjoyed a good welcome from European market and they seem to like the Ace line-up.
Some other features included on Galaxy Ace 3 are S Translator, S Travel, Smart Stay and S Voice, among Google Play and other Android related apps. The smartphone itself isn’t capable of many things but it does its job very well and you can rely on its limited resources if you are not that of a technology geek.
There are no clues about how much it will cost, but considering the specs and the fact that you could get one trough contract it can gat as low as “everybody could afford it”. We’ll come up with updates once the prices are going to be made available for both on contact and contract free agreements.
