Earlier this month, we had reported that Samsung was allegedly working on expanding its Ace line of phones with the launch of the Galaxy Ace 3. Though it was more of a rumor then, the folks at TheDroidGuy have spotted the Galaxy Ace 3 on GLbenchmark, which is a clear indication that the device does exist and is set for a launch soon.
According to the benchmarks, the Galaxy Ace 3 (GT-S7272) is likely to have an optional Dual-SIM variant and seems to sport a 4-inch WVGA (800×480 pixels) display. The phone is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Broadcom processor, VideoCore IV GPU and 1GB of RAM. Other features on the phone are a 5-megapixel rear camera that can shoot HD videos at 720p and supports NFC. On the software side of things the phone seems to be running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and Samsung’s new Nature UX 2.0 out of the box.
From the benchmarks it is clear that the Galaxy Ace 3 is not a power-house, but a device that will sit comfortably among Samsung’s other mid-range devices. The Galaxy Ace 3 is expected to launch sometime next month or early June and we can expect an Indian launch soon after.
