It is a great midrange handset and will be loved by many. Here we bring to you Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 specs, features and release date details

Samsung is all set to unveil its third device from the Galaxy ace family, the Galaxy Ace 3 a successor to Ace 2. The Galaxy Ace 3 codenamed GT-S7270 will come in two versions including the dual SIM GT-S7272, and the single SIM GT-S7270.

The handset that would come in three colours metallic black, wine red and pure white is expected to be available in July in a price range of $300. It is also being rumoured that the forthcoming handset would be showcase by Samsung in London on June 20. Earlier it was rumoured to be unveiled in February.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 comes with a 1GHz dual-core CPU of unknown architecture and 1GB of RAM. Internal memory is just 4GB, 1.77 GB of which is user accessible.  However, the Galaxy Ace 3 compensates this shortcoming with the presence of a microSD card slot, which supports up to 64GB memory cards.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is build around a 4-inch TFT LCD display of WVGA resolution. At the back there’s a 5MP camera with LED flash, capable of recording 720p HD @30fps video. There’s also a VGA front-facing camera for video chatting.

Measuring 121.2 x 62.7 x 9.8 mm, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, weighs 115 grams and is backed by a powerful 1,500mAh Li-ion battery. Having varied connectivity options the  Ace 3 includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (single-band), Bluetooth 4.0, and A-GPS.

Alongside the 3G version of the Galaxy Ace 3, Samsung is also releasing an LTE variant for select markets. This version of the handset will have an upgraded internal storage from 4GB to 8GB. The processor is still of the dual-core variety, but is slightly over-clocked from 1GHz to 1.2GHz. Moreover, the battery has been jumped to 1,800mAh, making the LTE Galaxy Ace 3 slightly heavier at 119.5 grams.

There’s also 1080p video playback as well (the 3G version maxes out at 720p), hinting at a different chipset design altogether, but nothing has been confirmed just yet. The final difference between the 3G and LTE version is the HSPA speeds which reach 42Mbps on the LTE units and just 14Mbps on the LTE ones. The handset is expected to be released in mid July.
