Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus -- 3.65" Screen and 1GHz Upgrade

By Gary Cutlack on at

Samsung's not exactly short of affordable mid-range options on the Android scene, but one of last year's big successes was its Galaxy Ace -- so now there's another one. A slightly better one.

The updated Galaxy Ace Plus includes a 1GHz processor for a start, which should mean the previous phone's incompatibility with Adobe's Flash Player ought to be a thing of the past. And to make the BBC's iPlayer look a little nicer, there's a larger 3.65" screen, although it only displays at a rather old-fashioned resolution of 320x480.

Android 2.3 with Samsung's TouchWiz interface is the OS, plus there's a 5megapixel camera with flash and 1,300mAh battery. So it'll be cheap. Samsung says the Ace plus will arrive in Europe and other parts of the world starting from this month. It's the pre-Mobile World Congress cheapo model. [Samsung]
