Samsung has revealed the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus, an affordable Android smartphone with what sounds like a decent set of specs.
A follow up to the popular Samsung Galaxy Ace, the Plus receives a boost to its processing power as well as an update to the newer Android Gingerbread operating system.
- 1GHz processor
- Android 2.3 OS
- 3.65-inch capacitive touchscreen
- 3GB internal storage
- 5Mp camera
- HSDPA and wi-fi connectivity
As well as the faster processor and newer operating system – although it still isn’t the most recent version of Android, at the time of writing Ice Cream Sandwich found on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus – Samsung has added a larger internal memory and a slightly bigger screen.
However, as the display has the same resolution stretched over a slightly larger space, the screen may not seem as sharp as the previous version of the phone.
Unlike its predecessor, the Plus has seemingly taken its design inspiration from the iPhone 3GS rather than the iPhone 4. While this does make it a nice looking phone, we wonder how long it will take for Apple’s lawyers to turn their attentions on the device.
The Galaxy Ace Plus is going on sale in Russia this month and will then be released around the world. We don’t have any information on price or network availability yet.
