Samsung is now the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world, thanks largely to the success of its flagship Galaxy S range and increasing popularity of its Galaxy Note phablet series. However, Samsung remains a market leader when it comes to budget Android smartphones, with a number of its models selling very high volumes in several countries.
Perhaps the most well known budget Android phone from Samsung is the Galaxy Ace, and its follow-up Galaxy Ace 2. We recently reported that a new version called the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is in the pipeline for a 2013 release, which is likely to prove another hit.
Key features of the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 include a 4 inch WVGA resolution touchscreen, 1 GHz dual-core processor, 5 megapixel camera, 4 GB internal storage with microSD slot, 1 GB of RAM and NFC support. Of course, the device will run the Android operating system, and a recent article over at Phones Review reports that a benchmark test has confirmed that the phone will run Android 4.2.2 Jellybean, which is the latest version of the Google owned operating system. This is the same instalment of the platform used on higher end devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4, and a number of other recently launched flagship smartphones from other manufacturers. Visit our website to find out more about the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 and find the best Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 deals.
The phone will run Android 4.2.2 Jellybean alongside the Samsung TouchWiz interface, and by sporting the latest version it will certainly give the Galaxy Ace 3 an edge among the increasingly competitive budget Android market, with most similar devices utilising an older version of the operating system.
In the coming weeks, we can expect to hear more information about the features, pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, so we will keep you posted when we hear of any developments.
