If you’re in the UK and are looking for a good midrange Android smartphone, prepare to get confused. The Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus will finally become available tomorrow. The Galaxy Ace Plus. Not the Galaxy Ace 2, mind you, which is another device altogether and will be out on April 23.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus represents a slight upgrade in specs to its predecessor, the original Ace. It was first supposed to be out in February, but after missing that time frame, Samsung has today officially announced that the smartphone will be in stores tomorrow.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is a more significant upgrade to the original Ace, and as such it might be sold for a little bit more than the Ace Plus.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus has a 3.65-inch 320×480 touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, 3 GB of built-in storage space, microSD card support, 512 MB of RAM, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,300 mAh battery. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI overlay.
Vodafone should also start selling it tomorrow, though it’s not clear yet at what price points.
