Samsung outs the 4" Galaxy Ace 3 with the slogan 'Enjoy the New Mobile Essentials'

Samsung outs the 4" Galaxy Ace 3 with the slogan 'Enjoy the New Mobile Essentials'
Just as promised, Samsung today made the Galaxy Ace 3 official, leaving almost no Android secrets for its June 20th London event, as it already outed the S4 Active, too.

The slogan for the handset is "Enjoy the New Mobile Essentials," and judging from the specs, it fits right into that basic category - a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 4" 480x800 pixels display, 5 MP camera with LED flash on the back, plus a VGA camera up front, 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot.

The good news is the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s own TouchWiz interface and apps suite on top. Cellular connectivity will be covered with either HSPA+ or LTE models, depending on market. Other radios include WiFi b/g/n (2.4GHz) with WiFi Direct support, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS and GLONASS are included, as well as a suite of sensors, though nothing fancy like a hygrometer. Pretty entry-level handset of which we are sure Samsung will sell boatloads, what do you think?
