Samsung has launched the Galaxy Ace 3, a low-end (or entry-level, if you prefer) Android smartphone with a 4-inch screen and LTE capability.
The specifications are nothing to write home about: a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch, 480×800 display, a 5-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of memory, expandable via microSD cards.
The device is powered by Android 4.2 and also comes as a dual-SIM device — all in all, your standard low-end Android smartphone.
Samsung hopes to bring it a notch above the competition with a bunch of S-features, normally available in the company’s premium smartphones. These include the S Translator, which gives instantaneous translations at any time, S Travel, which provides travel guides and info, and S Voice, which offers voice command functionality.
The Galaxy Ace 3 will be available as 3G or LTE, depending on the market. The price and exact date of availability have not been announced
