Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Ace 3, its latest attempt at a mid-range Android smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 follows the spirit of the past generation of Ace devices and offers an attractive set of features and a Galaxy S4-inspired design.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 packs a 1GHz dual-core CPU of unknown architecture and 1GB of RAM. Internal memory is just 4GB, 1.77 GB of which is user accessible. However, the Galaxy Ace 3 compensates this shortcoming with the presence of a microSD card slot, which supports up to 64GB memory cards. The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is build around a 4-inch TFT LCD display of WVGA resolution. At the back there's a 5MP camera with LED flash, capable of recording 720p HD @30fps video. There's also a VGA front-facing camera for video chatting.

Measuring 121.2 x 62.7 x 9.8 mm, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 weighs 115 grams and sports a Li-ion battery of 1,500mAh. The Ace 3's connectivity suite includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (single-band), Bluetooth 4.0, and A-GPS.

Alongside the 3G version of the Galaxy Ace 3, Samsung is also releasing an LTE variant for select markets. This version of the handset will have an upgraded internal storage from 4GB to 8GB. The processor is still of the dual-core variety, but is slightly overclocked from 1GHz to 1.2GHz.

Moreover, the battery has been bumped to 1,800mAh, making the LTE Galaxy Ace 3 slightly heavier at 119.5 grams. It's a tad thicker, too measuring 10mm, as opposed to 9.8mm of the 3G variant. There's also 1080p video playback as well (the 3G version maxes out at 720p), hinting at a different chipset design altogether, but nothing has been confirmed just yet. The final difference between the 3G and LTE version is the HSPA speeds which reach 42Mbps on the LTE units and just 14Mbps on the LTE ones.
