Eyes of users around the world are turned towards the Samsung Galaxy S5 but as you can imagine, it isn’t the only smartphone Samsung has been working on recently. On Monday the company announced a new addition to the Galaxy Ace lineup, a phone called Galaxy Ace Style. Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the handset will hit the stores globally later this month. We are still waiting on information about pricing, but according to the speculations, the phone should be rather affordable with price falling somewhere between $275 and $315.
Samsung Galaxy Ace Style Phone
The Samsung Galaxy Ace Style was designed with “young social consumers” in mind and, according to Samsung, features a “unique look”. To say that it is “unique” is actually a bit of an overstatement. Truth be told, the phone appears to have a typical Galaxy-ish design with lower-end flavor.
Like other members of the Ace family, the Galaxy Ace Style is a pretty modest offering with no cutting-edge solutions on board. The phone sports a 4-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display and is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor of unknown make. There is 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory expandable up to 64 GB via microSD slot.
The Galaxy Ace Style is equipped with a 5-megapixel rear camera and VGA front-facing sensor for video chatting and self-portraits. Thanks to One Camera Preview, users will have easy access to both video recording and picture taking in full HD. Connectivity features include EDGE, GPRS, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n and NFC.
The Ace Style will ship with Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Samsung’s TouchWiz Essence on top, and will be pre-loaded with ChatON – the instant messaging service from Samsung. All these specs and features are packed in 2.47 x 4.77 x 0.42-inch (62.7 x 121.1 x 10.65 mm) body dressed in Cream White or Dark Gray and powered by a 1,500 mAh battery.
