Samsung has had a successful run not only with the high end devices which it offers, but in the mid range department as well. The Galaxy Ace series which was introduced back in 2011 became an instant hit and the devices which later joined the ranks, namely the Ace 2 and Ace Plus were received pretty well too.Now the company is all set to add another member to mid range family, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 (GT-S7272) which will be launched soon.
The smartphone has showed up on the GL benchmark which is more or less a clear indication of the fact that the device is in the works and the launch is nearing. The Galaxy Ace 3 will have a 4 inch screen of WVGA resolution and will get a dual SIM variant as well like the original Galaxy Ace. It will be powered by a Broadcomm made 1GHz dual core processor which will be complemented by a Videocore IV GPU. The recent partnership between the companies will result in a lot of more Samsung devices being powered by Broadcomm chipsets.
It will come with a 1GB RAM. The rear of the smartphone will be adorned by a 5 megapixel snapper which will be capable of shooting videos in 720p resolution. It will come with NFC support like most of the upcoming devices and will run on the latest iteration of Android, 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and on top of it will have the Nautre UX 2.0 which is Samsung’s latest version of the skin it uses for its devices. So it will look like pretty much one of those high end devices that Samsung sells until they get the Andrid 5.0 Key Lime Pie update.
The fag end of the second quarter of 2013 is when we expect this to arrive on Indian shores or it might get a launch in July. It has some decent specs for a budget mid ranger and the screen size of 4 inches suggests to us that it might look like the iPhone 5 as the original Ace looked somewhat like the iPhone 4/4S. Nevertheless, it will be carrying on the legacy of a very capable mid ranger.
