Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 announced

One of the brilliant masterstrokes that Samsung has done was to roll out phones of all types, targeting not only the entry level and high end segments of the markets, but also work to deliver the best experience for folks who happen to like mid-range handsets. After all, with the bell curve graph showing off that the number of “average” folks are always the highest figure, it makes perfect sense then, that this could very well be the bread and butter segment for any company with their product, just like how Nokia used to conquer the entire handset range before the explosion of the smartphone. Having said that, Samsung is back with their latest addition to the Galaxy range, having announced the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, which is a smartphone that intends to bring a slew of features from the higher end models onto a package that would be easy on your pocket in terms of finances and size.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is said to be powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in tow, making it carry the latest version of the Android operating system. Bear in mind that this is not a smartphone which will carry LTE connectivity right out of the box, as it depends on which market that it will roll out in, so some variants of it would max out at 3G. When it comes to connectivity options, the Galaxy Ace 3 is nothing much to shout about, but it does get the job done – with Wi-Fi 802.11n, Wi-Fi Direct, USB 2.0 and Bluetooth 4.0. There is also a 5-megapixel camera at the back for avid shutterbugs.

8GB of internal memory is pretty much average these days, although I do wonder just how much space would Samsung’s pre-loaded software take up, as the 16GB model of the Samsung Galaxy S4 had nearly half of its internal memory occupied by stuff from Samsung themselves, leaving users with just 8GB or so of storage space right out of the box. It is a good thing that Samsung decided to throw in a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes, allowing you to carry all of your other media with you on a 64GB microSD card.
