Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 coming in July, with 4G too

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is set to land in July -- and it looks like it's bringing 4G at an expected bargain price.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is set to land in July -- and it looks like it's bringing 4G at an expected bargain price.

The first British shop to confirm it's stocking the Ace 3 says the new wallet-friendly Android smart phone is expected to replace the current Galaxy Ace 2 in July, although you can't place an order just yet.

Carphone Warehouse has a page where you can register your interest in the Ace 3 and sign up for email updates on the new phone.

Carphone Warehouse is the first to confirm it will sell the Ace 3, but we expect other shops and networks will follow suit. We'll keep you posted on prices when we find out more -- and in the meantime we expect to get our hands on the Ace 3 and the rest of the slew of recently announced Galaxy phones at Samsung's event on 20 June.

The latest Ace packs a 4-inch screen and 1.2GHz dual-core processor, as well as a 5-megapixel camera and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software. There was no mention of 4G in the original announcement, but the Carphone Warehouse listing mentions 4G LTE. That suggests the Ace 3 will be another affordable option on EE, Britain's first 4G network.

Meanwhile the Ace 2 and the original Ace are still on sale at very agreeable prices. Three has slashed the price of the first Ace to £90, with £10 pay-as-you-go credit included when you switch from another network.

Is the Ace 3 a winning hand, or does it deserve to stay in the hole? Deal your thoughts in the comments or on our ace Facebook page.
