The entry-level Samsung Galaxy Ace Style shown in Germany, runs Android 4.4 KitKat
It looks like Samsung brought a new entry-level smartphone to Hamburg, Germany. It's called the Galaxy Ace Style (SM-G310HN), and it's one of the models which Sammy wanted to trademark in the beginning of 2014.
Apart from unmistakeable Samsung looks, the Ace Style (pictured to the right) offers a pretty up to date software package - Android 4.4 Kitkat and the latest TouchWiz interface. It has a 4-inch display that comes across as reasonably sharp in the photos. The rest of the available specs are 4GB internal storage, and a pair of 0.3MP and 5MP front cameras. Pretty humble, but at least the software is up to speed.
A Samsung representative said that the Galaxy Ace Style will be priced between $276 to $413 (200-300 EUR), and offered in single and dual-SIM variants. Of course, the European price seems pretty drastic when converted to US dollars, but it makes sense in European currency.
Thanks for the tip!

OMFG, the looks! It's so horrible. That overused design, plus those fat bezels. >.<
I know it's a "budget" device, but it just looks wrong. I just wish Ace 4 (if there will be) doesn't look as same as this...jeez.

Eeeh, Galaxy Y Pro, Galaxy Nexus, XCover series...not a lot, I think.

See, there are hundreds of Galaxy devices and there are only a few different phones.
Note: My Galaxy Beam has yellow stripes around it and it looks good.

Samsung isn't tired of the bar soap design.. That one's just terrible. The hand feel prolly isn't good either.

The same price can get you an LG L9 II (just an example, one of many) which is a class above this ridiculously overpriced piece of **** with the same boring design that yells "Compromise!".

Even the screen is so cheap, it uses low res TFT LCD... OMG...

I usually can differentiate Samsung's phones because of some minor differences in their designs, but I can barely do that here. The only difference I see from the Galaxy Ace 3 is the left capacitive button, which has changed from a menu button to a recent apps button.

Dear Phone Arena,
I see this new Samsung's device is using the new 3.10 android kernel, is Samsung already started to use this new kernel to their latest devices such as S5, note3, tab pro, etc ?
Because as far as i know, even Nexus 5 is still using the 3.4 kernel. Is there an significant adavantage in using this new kernel, or at least what the difference with the old one. Could you enlighten me with such matter?
Thank you, and sorry for my poor english. keke ^^
