Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus Announced

Samsung has unveiled a new smartphone called the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. The new device appears to be a mid-range device in terms of specs in that it has a 3.65 inch HVGA screen with a resolution of just 320 x 480 pixels. The screen uses TFT technology. It isn’t clear why Samsung have opted for a low resolution screen when compared to the high-end models, but it could (or will likely) mean that the device will cost a lot less when it launches.

Powering the Galaxy Ace Plus is a 1GHz processor. The camera on the back can capture at 5 megapixels in WVGA format at 30 frames per second. The operating system running on the device is Android 2.3 Gingerbread. An update to Ice Cream Sandwich isn’t mentioned although it’s too early to rule that out at the moment.

Other features include A-GPS for location based services as well as Bluetooth and 802.11b/g/n for connectivity. All the usual sensors are found within which includes the compass, proximity and accelerometer.

Storage on the smartphone is at 3GB which can be expanded a further 32GB by microSD. It also has 512MB of RAM.

Pricing and availability is unknown at the moment, but we expect it to launch within the next few weeks, perhaps by the end of this month.
