Samsung has announced a refreshed version of the very popular Samsung Galaxy Ace, featuring much improved hardware, called the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. For now however, no information has been released about pricing or availability – we expect more details at CES 2012. According to the Korean giant’s press release, the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread-based Galaxy Ace Plus will let users “Play and Share Faster and Smarter.”
Many improvements have been made to the Galaxy Ace Plus, with a faster processor at 1GHz compared to the Ace’s 800MHz, 512MB of RAM instead of 384MB, 3GB of built-in storage rather than 158MB, Bluetooth 3.0 instead of Bluetooth 2.1, a slightly smaller 1,300 mAh battery compared to 1,350 mAh, and a larger display with the same 320×480 resolution, 3.65-inch instead of 3.5-inch.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus has been slightly redesigned aesthetically as well, with a glossy plastic body now, instead of matte. Specifications remaining common include a 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash, 3G HSDPA 7.2Mbps, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot and DLNA, 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB, stereo FM with RDS, GPS with A-GPS, and a document editor.
A 2GB microSD card will probably not be bundled with the Galaxy Ace Plus.
