Samsung has launched the Galaxy Ace Style, a 4-inch Android smartphone aimed at younger users who want a simple and streamlined experience.
Available this month, the Galaxy Ace Style runs the latest version of Android, 4.4 KitKat, and is powered by a modest dual-core processor, clocked at 1.2GHz and with 512MB of RAM; there’s 4GB of internal storage but thankfully this can be increased by up to 64GB via a microSD card slot.
The Ace Style’s rear camera is five megapixels and is joined by a VGA quality shooter on the front for video calls and selfies.
Samsung says the phone has a “light, simplified user interface... making it ideal for young, expressive types.” Basically this phone is being aimed at teenage social network addicts who don’t want the gimmicks and features of a flagship phone - and whose parents don’t want to shell out a fortune for one, either.
Looking not too dissimilar to the Galaxy S3 Mini from last year, the Ace Style is available globally in cream white and dark grey. The phone measures 121 x 63mm, is 10.7mm thick and has a 1,500mAh battery.
