As expected, TELUS and Samsung have just released the Galaxy Ace II X in Canada. The smartphone will be released at Bell and SaskTel as well, in the following days.
Android fans can now purchase the Samsung Galaxy Ace II via TELUS for as low as $30/€25 with new three-year agreements. Additionally, the carrier offers the smartphone for $250/€195 off-contract. Check it out here.
The handset is attractively described on TELUS site, “cutting edge technology meets sleekly modern portable design in the powerful Samsung Galaxy Ace II X, which offers premium features and legendary Samsung quality at an affordable price.”
The Galaxy Ace II X is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box and packs a 1 GHz singe-core processor.
Given the fact the smartphone embeds 1GB of RAM, there’s a high chance Samsung will offer an official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade for the Galaxy Ace II X. We have yet to receive any confirmation on this update.
Furthermore, the device sports a 5-megapixel shutter on the back, which features LED flash and video recording. There’s also a secondary VGA front facing camera for video calls.
Samsung Galaxy Ace II X features a decent 4-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution and 16 million colors.
Although the smartphone packs only 4GB of internal memory, users will be able to further expand it up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
Other highlights of the Galaxy Ace II X include: HSDPA (7.2Mbps) and Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, built-in GPS and Wi-Fi hotspot ability.
The phone’s 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery is rated by the manufacturer for up to 7.5 hours of talk time or up to 640 hours of standby time. Stay tuned for more updates on the availability of the smartphone through other Canadian carriers.
