Samsung Galaxy Ace Style LTE brings Super AMOLED to the masses

Samsung Galaxy Ace Style LTE brings Super AMOLED to the masses
Earlier his year, Samsung released a low-end handset called Galaxy Ace Style. Now, the company is introducing an upgraded version of it: the Galaxy Ace Style LTE.

As its name suggests, the new handset offers LTE connectivity. It’s a bit larger than the regular Ace Style, as it sports a 4.3-inch WVGA screen instead of a 4.0-inch one. Speaking of it, the display of the Ace Style LTE is a Super AMOLED one - a rarity for entry-level smartphones. When we reviewed the regular Galaxy Ace Style we were disappointed by its TFT display, but the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED panel of the Ace Style LTE most likely offers a better viewing experience.

The Galaxy Ace Style LTE runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and further features: a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.3 MP front-facing camera, NFC, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 1900 mAh battery.

Samsung seems to be confused regarding the new handset’s name, calling it both “Ace Style LTE” and “Ace 4” - at least that’s what we’re seeing over at Samsung’s Germany website. We must mention that a Galaxy Ace 4 was already introduced back in June - though this one offers a 4-inch TFT display, so it’s slightly different from the Ace Style LTE. The Galaxy Ace Style LTE costs €199 in Germany - a rather high price for what the device has to offer.

It's probably going to look like crap at that price point...

Very fair and astute observation. If its less expensive then its probably 'crap'. /s

Ofc, Super Amoled is better then Amoled. I don't think anyone buying a cheap and cheerful cares about color accuracy. At the end of the day all a person with this phone cares about is a decent vibrant display with excellent outdoor visibility which Amoled offers.

That logo placement in the thumbnail very much reminded me of Nokia.

Liking the logo placed landscape on the back. Also the display. Just the price is a tad high but nice handset nonetheless from Samsung.

For what it is, it's a nice phone. But it really shouldn't be more than $170 with specs like that.
