Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 goes official

Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Ace 3, the entry level Android smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 Key Specification :

  • 4-inch TFT LCD display with WVGA resolution
  • 1GHz dual-core processor
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor (LTE version)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB internal memory with expandable microSD
  • 8GB internal memory with expandable microSD (LTE version)
  • 5MP back facing camera, 720p HD @30fps video
  • VGA front facing camera
  • LTE (selected regions)
  • dual-SIM (selected regions)
  • 1,500mAh
  • 1,800mAh (LTE version)
  • Android 4.2

Price and availability still unknown.

My Opinion : Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 still maintain the spirit of the past generation of Ace devices but follow Galaxy S4 design language. Sadly those fancy features from S4 wasn't port over to Ace 3. In addition the LTE variant has difference spec than 3G version seem confusing. Why can't Samsung just standardize the hardware? Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 gonna rival against Sony Xperia L (which currently price under RM899 - come with bigger screen, better camera, NFC built in and Play Station certificated) so I am interested to know what's the price tag Ace 3 gonna be.
