    The Samsung Galaxy Ace

    Although Samsung has yet to officially announce the Galaxy Ace smartphone, its Indonesian operation erroneously launched a web page featuring details about the handset this week.

    The Galaxy Ace is set to enter the market roughly in the middle, providing Android 2.2 thrills for those who do not want to shell out for a top of the line smartphone.

    With a 3.5 inch touchscreen display, an 800MHz processor and a five megapixel camera, its specs are suitably healthy, even if it is likely to be a budget option.

    Judging from the pictures which were temporarily available on the website, it will look very similar to the original Samsung Galaxy S, which, in turn, had a definite feel of the iPhone 3G S about it.

    Samsung is likely to skin Android 2.2 with its own TouchWiz interface and it is also adding Swype typing technology to save on keypad tapping, although this is still catching on rather than a must-have feature.

    The Samsung Galaxy Ace is set to be revealed at Mobile World Congress next month, but with all this information on specs and capabilities leaked via an official channel, there are not likely to be any more surprises.

    The Samsung Galaxy Ace?

    A new addition to the Galaxy range of smartphones is coming from Samsung after a press image was leaked online this week.

    The Samsung Galaxy Ace is going to be smaller than the Galaxy S and thus appeal to the midrange mobile buyer, according to Phandroid.

    The Galaxy Ace will run version 2.2 of Android and is likely to sport a 3.5 inch touchscreen display when it makes its first appearance during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event next month.

    The original Galaxy S was noted for its resemblance to the iPhone 3G S and now that the Galaxy Ace is inbound with a display of exactly the same proportions as Apple’s device, these aesthetic similarities will be even more pronounced.

    The Galaxy Ace will keep its hardware specs a little below the top of the market with an 800MHz processor, a five megapixel camera and a small amount of onboard storage, which will be supplemented by a bundled 2GB microSD memory card.

    Expect to see the Samsung Galaxy Ace arrive in the UK following its MWC 2011 unveiling, which should give users on a budget yet another option for Android-based fun later in the year.
