After the initial rumors for Galaxy Ace 3 existence, the phone has made an appearance on benchmarking site GLBenchmark. The model number is labelled as GT-S7272 and the price and availability is expected to be announced on or after launch. We can expect it to launch sometime soon as Samsung’s lower-mid range Android bracket is craving for a new successor.
As per the report, the Smartphone will be getting the same CPU as in Galaxy S2 Plus, the 1 GHz dual core Broadcom CPU. It will run on Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean and will have a resolution of 800 x 480. Samsung’s Nature UX 2.0 will complement the Android Jelly Bean. The size of the screen is not yet known although we expect it to be somewhere around 4 inches since its predecessor Galaxy Ace 2 had a 3.8 inch screen.
There was no other information from the report at GLBenchmark but we can expect a RAM of 768 MB or 1 GB along with 8 GB of internal storage and a micro SD card slot for expansion. It should also come with all new connectivity features like WiFi, DLNA, Bluetooth, GPS and 3G along with a host of other Samsung’s features and customizations on top. We expect it to come with dual-SIM support, although take it with a pinch of salt.
Earlier this month, there was also a report from Sam Mobile claiming that Galaxy Ace 3 would be codenamed GT-S7272 and will be launched around May-end or beginning of June. The report said it will have a 4-inch screen, 1.2 GHz dual core CPU, 5 MP camera, 4 GB internal storage, 1500mAh battery and Android Jelly Bean. The report further added that it will be a dual-SIM Smartphone, will come in four colors and will cost around 300 Euros.
The predecessor Galaxy Ace 2 was launched in Feb 2012 and had a 3.8inch TFT LCD screen, underclocked 800 MHz dual core processor, 768 MB RAM, 4 GB internal storage, 1500 mAh battery and a 5 MP camera. It got upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean recently and thus proved to be a decent mid-range phone. Its successor should have a better specification than Galaxy Ace 2 above and should probably prove to be another affordable decent mid-range alternative from Samsung.
