Galaxy Ace 3New low-ender with a dual-core CPU and optional LTE connectivity.

Another week, another Samsung phone announcement. This time it’s the turn of the Galaxy Ace 3, the manufacturer’s new entry-level offering. The most recent device in Samsung’s popular Galaxy Ace line, the Ace 3 move things forwards with optional LTE connectivity, a dual-core CPU and the latest software from Google and Samsung.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 features a dual-core 1GHz processor (1.2GHz in the LTE version), 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 4-inch WVGA (800x480) display. On the 3G version there’s also 4GB of internal memory, of which just 1.77GB is available to use, so you’ll want to use that microSD slot to expand the available storage. The 4G version has 8GB, with 5GB usable. The Ace 3 also includes many of the headline software features of the Galaxy S4, such as S Travel, S Translation and S Voice, in addition to Easy Mode. That's due to its running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and the latest TouchWiz UI.

As we mentioned, the Galaxy Ace 3 will be available in 3G and 4G LTE flavors, and there’ll also be a dual-SIM option. While a European release is highly likely, there’s no word on any regional availability or release dates just yet -- we’ll likely learn more as Samsung’s offices around the world wake up later in the day.

We also imagine we’ll see the Ace 3 in London on June 20, at the company’s “Premiere 2013” event.

Update: Samsung tells us that the LTE version will be sold in the UK.

And that word-play on the name Galaxy Ace 3 / Galaxy S3... Built in bait and switch. Great way to dilute your brand Samsung.

Oh for crying out loud!

Here's 5 Samsung Androids already in existance with identical/similar specs:
Galaxy S Advance
Galaxy Ace 2
Galaxy S Duos
Galaxy S3 Mini
Galaxy Express

So you're paying for the very very latest version of android and maybe LTE.

While I agree, for some people the latest version of Android and LTE are worth a new, very low-end, device.
I expect some of those devices will come off the market once the Ace 3 releases as well.
