KOREAN PHONE VENDOR Samsung's budget smartphone the Galaxy Ace 2 is now available in the UK.
UK mobile operator Three announced that the sequel to the Galaxy Ace, which will be running the older version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, is available to buy through its website. It will be on sale in stores from 25 May.
The phone has a 3.8in WVGA screen, a 5MP camera with auto focus and a front facing VGA camera - for those times when you want to check your hair.
Under the hood it's got a dual-core 800Mhz processor, general connectivity such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
Three said that the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 will cost from £22 a month with no up-front cost on an "Essential Internet 500" plan, a deal that offers free mobile internet with no additional data charges. A pay as you go option will set you back £229.99.
Rival operator O2 has said on its ‘Coming Soon' web page that the budget smartphone will be available sometime in May, while T-Mobile, Orange and Vodafone have no mention of the handset on their ‘Coming Soon' pages.
When revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year, Samsung said the Galaxy Ace 2 was a "refreshed version" of the "hugely successful" original Ace. µ
