Just yesterday we spotted this leaked picture of the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3. Now it’s all official, and we’ve just received the press release below to confirm.
Powered by Android 4.2 (Jellybean) it has a 4″ 480×800 WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 5 megapixel rear camera and a front VGA cam. A whole host of Samsung apps are also inside, including Samsung Kies, Samsung ChatON, Samsung Hubs (Game / Readers / Music), S Translator, S Travel, Smart Stay, S Voice and “Easy Mode” to make everything a tad simpler.
The Ace 3 has 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage, although those Samsung apps do suck up some space, so you’re left with only 5GB internally. You can slap in a microSD card though and increase the space available. GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 3.5mm audio port also feature.
