Officially unveiled earlier this year at Consumer Electronics Show 2012 trade fair, in Las Vegas, the Galaxy Ace Plus has just arrived in South Korea.Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus is a budget-friendly Android smartphone, which is expected to receive a Jelly Bean upgrade in the following months.
According to SammyHub, customers in South Korea will be able to purchase the Galaxy Ace Plus through major retailers across the country with the choice of the carrier. The smartphone is currently priced at 200,000 won, which is about $185/€145.
As we already mentioned, Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus is far from being impressive when it comes to hardware, but the fact the South Korean company decided to offer a Jelly Bean update for this smartphone will certainly make it more attractive to Android fans.
The Galaxy Ace Plus made its debut on the market back in February and ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system onboard.
On the inside, the smartphone comes equipped with a single-core Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz, which is complemented by an obsolete Adreno 200 graphics processing unit and only 512MB of RAM.
It’s interesting the HTC has just announced it won’t update its smartphone equipped with 512MB or less RAM, but Samsung decided it could offer a Jelly Bean upgrade for Galaxy Ace Plus, even though it packs only 512MB of RAM.
In addition, Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus comes with 3GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
There’s also a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back, which features autofocus, LED flash and video recording. Given the fact that this is a budget-friendly device, Samsung decided against adding a secondary front-facing camera for video calls.
Last but not least, the Galaxy Ace Plus is powered by a 1300 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 670 hours of standby time or up to 11 hours of talk time.
