Samsung reveals the Galaxy Ace 4 in both 3G and LTE variations

Samsung reveals the Galaxy Ace 4 in both 3G and LTE variations
Samsung poured a bunch of low- to midrange phones over our unsuspecting tech heads today, announcing long-awaited sequels to its Ace, Core, and Young lines. One of these successors is the Galaxy Ace 4, but if you have been waiting for a huge specs upgrade over the Ace 3, you'll be in for a disappointment.

The Ace 4 sports roughly the same specs like its predecessor, but, naturally, comes with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, so no harm, no foul. There are actually two versions of the Ace 4 - one with 3G-only, and one with 4G Lte connectivity. the differences, besides the cellular connectivity support, are the slightly faster, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor in the LTE version, against the 1 GHz CPU in the 3G one, 1 GB of RAM instead of 512 MB in the 3G variant, and 1800 mAh battery for the LTE kiddy, instead of 1500 mAh in the 3G Ace 4. The dimensions of both devices are slightly different - 121.4 x 62.9 x 10.8 mm, and 123.8g for the 3G Ace 4, while the LTE version is slightly thicker and heavier, but not by much.

Other than that we get the same 4" 480x800 pixels screen we had in the Ace 3, and a 5 MP camera with LED flash on the back. The built-in storage is 4 GB, with a microSD slot for expansion at up to 64 GB more. Naturally, the Galaxy Ace 4 comes standard with Samsung’s TouchWiz Essence interface, which is a stripped down version of the TW you'd find on flagships like the Galaxy S5, without things like the Multi-window mode, for instance. The Galaxy  Ace 4 will be available in "Iris Charcoal" and "Classic White" next month for a price yet to be pegged by Samsung.

The only *upgrade* I can think of is that it will cost even lesser.

Not anymore! The og galaxy ace burned many people with its $300+ price only to die after a year. The next iteration ace 2 and ace plus only got small sales thanks to better and cheaper mediatek powered phones. The ace 3 got abysmall sales due to mediatek phones having quad cores and qhd screens at half the price. And now the ace 4 will do battle with 5 inch 1280x720 kitkat powered mediatek 6582m phones with 1gb ram and 4gb storage plus sdcard slot that are priced $114-150 and galaxy ace 4 might also not get the sales it wants, tough luck eh! And it will also battle the onslaught of newer snapdragon 200 quad core phones with adreno 305 and 1gb ram again with lower prices...

Ugh, I waited for next Ace to buy, but no. They have dissapointed me again. I think this was supposed to be a mid-range phone, but now even Moto E is making this look like a joke. -.- Samsung never fails to dissapoint me.

Plus, they can't update Ace 3, which is better than this utter crap, to KitKat 4.4, but can make almost completely same or even worse sucessor for it with 4.4. So then people, who wants this crazy KitKat update, must buy new device. And people say Apple is one who does that....goddamn Sammy, I trusted you ;-; Well dome ScamSpamSung.

So many variants... they're going to run out of names soon and start naming their phones like they do their TVs.

Its obvious Samsung is disassembling their unsold inventory, repackaged them, selling them as new models again.

Fandroids remember this day when you start bragging about how many more phones Samsung sells compared to Apple. 60% are phones like the Ace and the other 3 phones they released today.
