The smartphone will be available for free on select contracts
Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 was officially introduced on the market back in July, but the smartphone has yet to make its debut in the UK.Today, the South Korean company has finally confirmed that the Galaxy Ace 3 will hit shelves in the UK on October 5. The mid-range Android smartphone will be available for purchase via EE brick and mortar stores, followed by select retailers, such as Carphone Warehouse and Tesco.
No word on the price tag yet, but we suspect that it will be available for free on select plans. More details on the Galaxy Ace 3’s pricing options will be available tomorrow.
Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 will ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box and a decent 1 GHz dual-core Broadcom BCM21664 processor.
The UK version of Galaxy Ace 3 won’t support dual-SIM feature, but it will be compatible with 4G LTE networks in the country.
It is also worth mentioning that the device packs 8GB of internal memory, 1GB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 64GB). A 5-megapixel rear-facing camera is included as well, along with a secondary VGA front-facing camera for video calls.
The Galaxy Ace 3 sports a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution and 233 ppi (pixel density).
Last but not least, the handset is powered by an 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery, which should provide up to 370 hours of standby time or up to 8 hours of talk time.
“Our latest addition to the Galaxy portfolio, the Galaxy Ace 3 is packed with loads of features designed to provide a smoother and more intuitive user experience. Following the success of the Galaxy Ace 2, we are confident that our customers will enjoy this new device when it hits the shelves this month,” said Simon Stanford, vice president of IT and mobile division, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland.
