Samsung is probably the only Android device manufacturer making heavy profits. Other companies like HTC and Motorola are going through a bad time, with profits plunging every quarter. In a bid to improve their products, brand identity and more, Motorola and HTC have promised to release fewer phones in 2012. However, it looks like Samsung is taking just the opposite route!
The company has just released the successor of Galaxy Ace, a popular mid-range Android phone , the Galaxy Ace 2. The Galaxy Ace 2 packs in a 800MHz dual-core processor, and a 3.8-inch WVGA (480×800) PLS TFT screen. Other than this, the handset also packs in 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, along with a microSD card slot. At the back of the Ace 2 is a 5MP snapper aided by an LED flash, and a VGA snapper in the front. The handset is also capable of recording videos in HD (720p) resolution. All other usual connectivity features like GPS with GLONASS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, and Bluetooth v3.0 etc. are also present. The handset runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with Samsung’s TouchWIZ UI on top of it.
The Galaxy Ace 2 will be available in the U.K from April at an unknown price.
